"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!"Olivia Mitchell, University of Birmingham
"My time with VACI was a truly wonderful experience; the trip really allowed me to develop as a teacher in ways other environments would not. Not only have I emerged from the experience with a greater, more impressive skill set, but I have also had a fabulous time experiencing true Ghanaian culture first hand. I’ve fallen in love with the music, food, history, and most importantly, the people that I have met through VACI. It has been a thoroughly life changing experience, filled with adventure and excellent company. I urge others to volunteer with VACI-Ghana, an organization that really takes care of its volunteers, and does so much for the people of Ghana."Abbie Forster, University of Birmigham
