Frontier

Had a great time in Belize. It's a really chilled country and the project was lots of fun. We did surveying most week days, and saw plenty of marine life, including manatees - twice!
I'd definitely recommend the project, it's on a beautiful location and don't think I would have got to appreciate an island like Caye Caulker if I wasn't doing something like this.

Frontier

I spent two weeks on the Tenerife whales project. Really enjoyed it! The staff are lovely and although I was only there a short time I really felt like a part of the team, and that my activities were part of something larger. On a typical day you will probably go out on the whale watching boats for half a day. During this we're involved in two main activities - cataloguing the whales and dolphins sighted (there are loads in this part of the world!) and raising awareness on sustainable whale watching.
The volunteer house is a real gem, it's far enough from the city centre that it's peaceful but you can walk to town in 10 or 15 minutes. There's loads of space to socialise, cook, and work on the project initiatives.
I'd like to have stayed longer but I am aiming to go back again in the new year.

RCDP Nepal

I volunteered in a hospital in Kathmandu. During my two month stay I was able to see many areas of Nepal through RCDP. Each of the excursions were well planned and very fun. I stayed in the hostel and enjoyed that there were constantly new volunteers coming and going. Everyone who works in RCDP and the hostel are friendly, kind, and caring. If I ever had a problem there were a multitude of people to go to. My project was working in a small private hospital down the street. I learned a great deal about culture and healthcare through this experience. I do wish that the program had more direction or hands on opportunities, as I am qualified as a nurse. I felt many times that while the hospital was extremely valuable for me, I was not contributing much. All in all I absolutely loved my stay in Nepal and loved being able o chat with everyone at RCDP if I ever had a question about culture, religion or politics. They were all wonderful and I gained a lot from this experience.

RCDP Nepal

I volunteered for one week at the hospital and stayed at the volunteer hostel in Kalanki Mandir, Kathmandu. The hostel consists of two rooms (four beds in one and five beds in the other, one bathroom each room) in which volunteers stay. It's safe to leave your luggage, passport, ect. in the room.
Volunteering at the hospital mostly consists of shadowing.
The pollution in Kathmandu is challenging. Just giving a heads up.
I volunteered at a school for a few days at a school, and I would recommend that if you enjoy children.
The staff in the hostel are very kind and supportive.
