Incredible volunteer experience

I had a truly amazing experience with IVHQ and I can't wait for the opportunity to volunteer with them again. As part of my gap year I knew I wanted to explore the world while also assisting a community in need. Ultimately, I decided that Lisbon, Portugal was where I wanted to do this. From the moment I arrived, and throughout my five week stay, the IVHQ team in Portugal made me feel right at home. The accommodations and food were beyond my expectations and everyone was very friendly/ helpful. As far as my volunteer placement went, it was a very educational experience. It was fascinating to work amongst people of various backgrounds and cultures, all of whom shared a common goal. At my project, food rescue, I was able to see who I was helping which definitely made my efforts more worthwhile. Additionally, my placement only lasted a few hours each day which allowed all of the volunteers an excellent chance to explore Lisbon and its surrounding cities. This was a great way to bond with them and I will cherish the memories and friendships made throughout my time there. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is considering traveling with IVHQ. Thank you again for an unforgettable trip!

Renovating in Lisbon

My experience with ImpactTrip in Portugal was beyond what words can describe. I personally volunteered in Construction & Renovation, working with the local NGO ‘Just a Change’. I learned a lot the field, the local culture -since I was working with local students volunteers. I met amazing men and women with whom it turned out that I had a lot in common although we all come from different environments. I made both local and foreign friends, adapted to a totally different city (an amazing one by the way) and made memories that I will keep forever.

Re-food/food rescue

This was an amazing experience! Re-Food is helping feed the poor with the help
Of local stores and restaurants, it truly is an amazing program with an amazing team to help support you!
The Food, Culture and ambiance of the city is truly amazing. The people are kind and thof cost is inexpensive compared to the rest of Europe. I never felt unsafe anywhere I went and well walking around Lisbon you are bound to lose weight because of the hills!

Refood volunteer

I stayed in this program for a week. I was able to help a local food redistribution center during my time which did feel like I was doing some good for the locals in Lisbon. Part of that meant helping package up and storing/distributing food as well as going to collect food from the different restaurants involved with the program.
Apart from the volunteering aspect, there were some local excursions offered and also plenty of free time to go explore the city. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to help people and who wants to learn a great city.

An amazing experience

I stayed with ImpactTrip/IVHQ for three weeks to work in the Construction and Renovation group and can say that every day I was working there felt like I was actually making an impact that would last for a long time.

Besides that everyone I met (both in the accomodations and in the placement) were amazing and down to earth people that have the same intention to help and get to know the people of Portugal.

I wholeheartedly recommend this volunteering group.
