reminds me of why I became a teacher in the first place. Also, I was totally knocked
out by the snorkelling, it was like swimming in a marine aquarium. In fact I wondered
whether I had died and gone to heaven!

It’s a wonderful experience and something
you’ll never regret doing. At the risk of sounding cheesy, it has changed my perspective
on so many things. Most importantly, though, it’s made me realise that even if I
can’t change the world, I can make a small positive difference. And not just to
other people but to myself as well. We have made friends for life and there are
people I can’t wait to see when we go back.
... We chose Travellers because of the level of support they offer their volunteers
and the huge range of projects they’re involved with. Plus, they’re very flexible
about the amount of work you’re required to do. You have the freedom to do as much,
or as little, as you want. They turned out to be brilliant and I’d really recommend
them to anyone considering voluntary work overseas.
