Volunteer Reviews

"It immersed me in a culture so different from mine, and opened my eyes to the ample opportunities I have to make a difference. My time here in South Africa has been an amazing journey – one that ill be telling to my children and their children. VA32 welcomed me as their own and ignited my passion for travelling and service to a world that has given me so much."

"It's not easy work because there are almost 14 kids everyday, but all the hard work is rewarded by their smiles and the excited "bye-bye" that I get everyday."
