"My desire to travel more has been strengthened through this experience also, beginning with another volunteer trip in the summer. That is the great thing about volunteering; it shows you how much more is out there and how you can really make a difference. You can go anywhere in the world, at any time, on a variety of different projects." - Marc, UK
