Testimonial from Susan Bechard
I wanted to visit Africa since I was a child but I did not want to go as a tourist - I wanted to see the "real" Africa. I enjoyed the visits to the orphanage, the weekend side trip, meeting other volunteers from all over the world, interactions with the local community members, learning Swahili, African cooking, buying local crafts, etc. GVI was well organized and helped to make a difference and I would love to do this again. It also provides a unique opportunity to see another country as it really is.
