Volunteer experience in the East of Iceland.

I chose this volunteer project mainly because it involved many of my interests. I enjoy hiking, camping and being outdoors, and I get out of the city as often as possible. I am also environmentally-conscious and have been looking for a volunteer opportunity to allow me to clean up the earth in any way possible. In addition to all of this, I chose this project as I have always wanted to go to Iceland, and for me it was an extraordinary experience to explore the Icelandic nature and landscape.

Feedback is amazing. I loved the program and so did everyone else I was with. It's seriously an amazing opportunity and experience. Meeting all of these different people from all over the world and becoming friends was amazing. I really liked the laid back structure to the program, and the leaders were great.

The project I took part in was a whole new experience for me. I have never been to Korea and am glad I had decided to go. I met some really great people and made some great friends. It was nice helping people and then just an act of help can put a priceless smile on their face.

Just came back from volunteering with CADIP in Iceland. I had a great time, experiencing two very different projects – farm renovation near Reykjavik and coastline cleanup in the Eastfjords. I made friends from all over the world. The organization was perfect and the entire staff was so helpful and friendly.
Looking forward to my next volunteer trip.

In Tintoda, Gujarat, we rebuilt an old ladies house that collapsed during the monsoon season, we planed 500 trees around a man made lake to reinforce the lake and increase the wildlife surrounding the lake, we spoke on health issues, visited a school for the handicapped, organized a sports day at the local school, helped distribute a free lunch for close to 800 children and participated in many local festivals and events. We were the first foreigners to ever visit this small town and they were ecstatic to host us. We had the opportunity to sit with the local government to discuss our thoughts and ideas about local developments and progressions.

The volunteer group was amazing and I have made life long friends in the process. After my 2 weeks volunteering I backpacked for an additional 3 weeks and saw many different areas of India.

For anyone who is planning on venturing to India to participate with volunteer projects: Just do it :)

I volunteered in Vietnam for two weeks in December organizing Christmas and New Year celebrations for disadvantaged Vietnamese kids and it was the best thing I've done. The opportunity to brighten the Christmas of these children meant the world to me. The group were fantastic people. I’ve enjoyed spending time with positive and supportive people from different countries.
Prior to my journey, CADIP were informative and efficient in answering any questions I had. The project coordinator was amazing – friendly and very helpful.
Anyone looking to make a difference volunteering should seriously consider their program.
