IFRE along with my host family Frederick and Hannah have done a great job make this program the best it can be. I found the process of applying very easy and I truly feel like I have gotten my moneys worth. The project is organized, my host family has been unbelievably warm and welcoming, and I've been able to get out and do some side trips on my own to really experience Tanzania. I would highly recommend this program to others.

I spent 8 weeks at a health clinic in Uganda and it truly was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
I combined this placement with my university studies and both the staff at the clinic and my supervisor were extremely supportive, assisting me in any way they could, including filling out numerous forms etc required by my university.
I leanrt many things that will assist me in my future medcal career but I also learnt many valuable life lessons. My host family welcomed me into their home and introduced me to the Ugandan lifestyle and customs. In addition to this I also made some life long friends.
It certainly was a once in a life time experience and one which I will treasure forever.

I worked at a school for poor children and sometimes volunteered at an orphanage. It was a great experience, it was tough too, and devastating to hear some of these children's stories - it makes you feel grateful for everything you've got. The staff at the school and the host family were all lovely, welcoming and open. It wasn't too formal, we had a lot of fun together. Anyone considering dong volunteer work should definitely try this programme - don't expect luxury, this is africa, but expect warmth and joy.
