I think that great thought has gone into each project that has volunteer placements and everyone involved is committed one hundred percent, which is what makes this set up work and is a huge strength of both people and places and calabash ( people and places local partner ED), the relationship between both organisations is essential and both parties have got it right, which is so important to the individual volunteer and much appreciated. At all times I felt in safe hands and I was never left in the dark about anything, which again is very important. .....Being a volunteer is the most life changing experience I have ever been a part of and it’s something I never thought would be possible but I have done it.
I would do it again and I will always recommend it as I couldn’t imagine a more fulfilling, well worth, beautiful experience to be a part of and it’s something that will be with me for the rest of my life.
