From the field...

"It was so fun and rewarding to work alongside other volunteers from around the world in a beautiful country that takes such pride in caring for the environment and local communities. Our only regret was that we did not arrange to stay longer. We appreciate everything that your organization does and look forward to volunteering abroad with VFP in the future."
