What Volunteers Are Saying

  • Olivia Mitchell

    "I had a wonderful time in Ghana, an experience I would not have been able to have without VACI-Ghana. As an aspiring psychologist, the experience provided me with a unique counseling opportunity that I would not have gained in the UK. The experience was life changing, progressing me personally as well as professionally. I have so much fun and learnt so much- it was so hard to leave!"

    "“It sounds very cliché to say that volunteering abroad was a life changing experience, however for me this is 100% true. The experience I had with VACI was wonderful, and so rewarding that I want to do it again! Thanks to the support and encouragement I had while volunteering here, I have now accepted a 3 month placement in Sri Lanka. I would never have done this without VACI. ”"
