What do our past volunteers say?

“I want to thank Volunteering Solutions for all my time in Arusha, for the wonderful people of Tanzania, and for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of patients. It was certainly one of the most memorable moments of my life.” - Carlos D, Short-Term Volunteering, Tanzania


“My experience with Volunteering Solutions was great! I had an amazing time in Thailand teaching Buddhist monks English, traveling, and exploring Thai culture! The whole experience also felt safe and comfortable (if something completely out of one’s comfort zone can still be called that)! I enjoyed everything that happened to me, and am happy that I decided to go!” - Maria K, Elephant Camp Program, Thailand
