I highly recommend using this company to volunteer abroad. Their staff are really respectful and comprehensive. Since the first e-mail that I sent, until a year after of my experience, they seemed to care about me and were always there to help me.
All the family members of the house that I stayed where really nice; food, internet and comfort would always be available and I had no issues with them since day 1. Maria, my "Peruvian mom" was like a real mom to the whole house, she would have dinner with us and we all got sad when we had to leave her. She was really careful with our stuff and would always be there to help us with questions or necessities.
The coordinators in the city would always be present as well, making possible to even create a friendship with them.
Our orphanage just like any other, really needed assistance and our presence there was essential for the kids. They would become happier once we were there.
RCDP will definitely have me again to volunteer in another country.

Volunteered at an orphanage for teen moms and their children. Really felt like we were needed and appreciated as volunteers, and we're making a difference for the moms.

RCDP provided excellent support throughout, including when I was ill and admitted to hospital.

The price was very reasonable and the majority went to the orphanage.

I volunteered for one month teaching English to young monks at a monastery in Galle and very much enjoyed the experience. My host Michael and his wife were very accommodating, and helped me in getting myself set up here. I enjoyed the meals, especially the hoppers and pumpkin curry and the wonderful fresh fruit. The young monks were absolutely lovely with a surprising technical proficiency. I was sad to leave them but I will always think fondly on my time with them.

I came with my daughter to volunteer at the orphanage in Punterenas. Before we left, we had several calls with our coordinator, Lauren to confirm costs and what we wanted to get out of the program. She set up an itinerary for us so we knew what we would be doing overall which included teaching English to the kids. We also wanted to get some fun activities in and she definitely delivered on this-from transportation to choosing safe but fun and unique experiences like waterfall repelling, horseback riding and zip lining. Then we had surf lessons. Absolutely amazing experiences with great people.
We experienced some culture shock especially the first two days with different expectations around sanitation and heat and the language difference. We wish we would have been better prepared with speaking and understanding Spanish. Overall it has been a fantastic experience and I would recommend it for those who are adventurous and independent.
