Chloe

Restoring Roman Walls in Germany

"I chose to volunteer in an isolated area of South Western Germany and did indeed re-build a Roman wall. But it is important to look beyond the surface and realise just how much this work meant to the local community. The wall had sadly been destroyed by local youths with stolen machinery. When we arrived it was a mass of rubble and moss. But seeing the smiles on our hosts faces - as they shook our hands looking at the completed wall - was worth all the many hours.

 

Every time I look at my photos I remember the fun times we had and look forward to next year when I hope to reconnect with the amazing friends I have made. Until then I am still dreaming up where my next project will take me.."

Teaching in Spain

Barney

"This gave me an opportunity not only to use my experience as a teacher but also to develop my skills and imagination in developing students’ linguistic skills outside a classroom setting. In our free time there were trips to Cazorla, Úbeda and Baeza, as well as hiking in the mountains, and almost daily swimming in the town’s outdoor pool, as we sought to cool off from temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius. 

As I reflect on my summer of volunteering I would like to thank the people who made it possible: especially Suzi and her colleagues at Concordia"

Katherine

Orphanage care in Vietnam

"I stayed for a few weeks following the completion of the project. Huong let us stay with her which provided a really intersting opportunity seeing how Vietnamese students live. She was a wonderful hostess who cooked for us and took us all over Hanoi on her motorbike to see all the sites. She genuinely couldn't have done more for us and I am forever in her debt. We also went to Sapa with Mai where we spent a night doing homestay with some of the local tribal people and it was lovely to spend some time with her too. I'm still in touch with a lot of the people I volunteered with via facebook and email and I really hope one day we will see each other again."
