About Volunteering Volunteer Feedback

"I will never forget this trip. The students here are so grateful for everything. At home students don't value things in the same way. I will remember a lot about this trip."

This is an amazing experience that my daughter will never forget and is an experience that we as parents will never be able to give her. She has come back inspired and full of confidence and gained several life skills along the way. Sri Lanka was really special. Thank you.
