"The support received from Concordia before hand was excellent. No question was ever unanswered and emails were responded to very fast which was excellent at allowing us as a volunteer leadership team to respond to questions we had and team members and their families.

Victor came to deliver some pre sessions at our February get together which was good and benefitted girls, families and leaders."

"Volunteering in Nepal is covering every aspect you can expect from a volunteering project with Concordia – hard, meaningful volunteering, exiting interaction with the local community, and interesting leisure visit which provides and insight in the local culture and history.

We often had a dinner where everyone joined in conversations, and a few evenings for games to be played by the whole team. During the work, the group was mixing and speaking to each other so a brilliant group who handled themselves.


The trips and excursions were also well balanced with the need of the group"
