This past June, I went to St. Lucia on a Global Volunteers service trip. It was a great experience. I tutored high school age students at a school for kids who need extra support. During my free time I enjoyed the tropical flowers and dramatic scenery. Going snorkeling was a highlight for me. The other volunteers were friendly and easy to spend time with, and the local coordinator was absolutely top notch. This was my first trip to the Caribbean. I saw a slice of life there that I would never have seen, had I just gone as a tourist.

I went to Cuba for two weeks with Global Volunteers to tutor English and learn about the Cuban culture, and I was amazed, enlightened, fulfilled, and rewarded beyond words with my experience there. G.V. is very organized, the cultural activities were very good, the local contacts were brilliant, the students I tutored were wonderful and grateful, and the people of Cuba are very welcoming. Thanks Global Volunteers.

My experience in India has been life-changing. I met and worked with the most amazing people, dedicated volunteers, and came away from the experience having received more than I gave. Please consider a trip to India or make a donation - large or even small....every amount helps change the lives of others and will add greatly to your own personal happiness. I am a better person today for having participated in a Global Volunteers experience....I learned to grow my heart!

I've been on a handful of Safaris in east Africa and my trip with Ian and Kawira was by far the best. The guides were super accommodating and had great stories to tell. Couldn't have chosen a better way to see the gorillas in Rwanda and would recommend Ian and his crew to anyone!
