"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". Nelson MandelaOn the initiation of a volunteer program by this same school, not only does the school receive additional funding to provide its learners with books, learning materials, a safe environment and help with the long term development of its infrastructure, through the visit of volunteers, the school also receives keen, qualified and motivated people to help and enhance its day to day running - a real win/win scenario providing all round benefit.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Gandhiand simply wish to play a part in this, benefit their chosen cause and in the process have the vacation of a lifetime amongst like minded, energised people! Indeed, many volunteers return home after their trips stating categorically that they feel they have "received much more than they have given" during the course of their stay. Generally though, it goes without saying that all volunteers are looking for a great vacation doing and being associated with something they really enjoy and will remember forever!
The people I’ve met, the memories that were created will no doubt stay with me for a life time. You end up running out of adjectives describing this place … incredible, surreal, unbelievable are just a few of the many words that spring to mind.
Where to start. This has been the best experience of my life. I love South Africa – it’s full of life, energy and peace. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been to, with breathtaking views and amazing animals. I go back home with memories and moments that I’ll never forget.
I had a sensational time and met so many lovely people. It still feels like this was all just a dream – too good to be true. I will miss this place!
The past few weeks have been full of amazing experiences. I felt honored to be involved here, learned a lot about Africa and met great people. I am so glad I came here – this experience was unforgettable!
