International Volunteer HQ [IVHQ] Reviews
The world coming together
Submitted by Nina - College of the Holy Cross | June 20, 2018
My first trip with IVHQ was an amazing experience. As a pre med student, I was interested in seeing what the medical profession was like in a different country, specifically my family’s home country. The doctors and nurses were very friendly and happy to answer my questions. I learned so much from the different departments of the hospital and was able to determine which were my strengths and weaknesses. I also worked alongside with the other volunteers, who have become to be my friends. They were one of the main highlights of my IVHQ trip. Even though I was able to communicate to the doctors and patients in Vietnamese, I learned that laughter has no language barrier. Overall, I am thankful for this amazing opportunity to be able to learn and continue my study in medicine. I look forward to continue my trips with IVHQ!
Teaching program in Kenya
Submitted by Liz Tang | June 19, 2018
I'm so blessed to have taught children in different cities of Kenya. They said I impacted them, but really they impacted me with their hard work, kindness and love more than they'll ever know. All the staffs and volunteers helped and taught me a lot so that I can have a wonderful time there. The three months memories will be cherished for my lifetime. Plus, I seriously would love to come back again!
Program: Volunteer and Teach in Kenya
Would recommend IVHQ Bali to anyone and everyone I know!
Submitted by Lindsey - Kennesaw State University | June 18, 2018
I volunteered with the IVHQ Bali Ubud program for 4 weeks teaching Kindergarten and doing school renovations when the students were out of school for holidays. The staff at the Green Lion Bali were among the nicest and most helpful people I've ever met. They were always making sure we felt prepared, safe, and were enjoying our time there. Additionally, the trip was incredibly affordable. For 4 weeks in Bali I ended up spending $3500 USD in total (all fees, flights, room, board, etc.). I would recommend this program to anyone. The only thing that I will say surprised me is that the accommodations are not in Ubud center, they are farther out of town in a village. However, I quite liked having a little bit of isolation from town.

This was the best experience of my life! I have always wanted to travel and volunteer abroad and IVHQ made this so fun and easy.
During the week we were able to volunteer and take in the experiences we wanted while leaving plenty of time to explore the country for the weekend.
Highly highly recommend this organization if you want a new way to travel and give back.
Conservation work in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Submitted by Mieke - Perth | June 18, 2018
This program was everything + MORE of what I was hoping it would be. I have never travelled solo due to anxiety and although I had a panic attack on my way TO the airport heading there- I haven't come close to having one since :) I felt so welcome and strangely at home during my stay at Nakavango, Victoria Falls. Hands down the best thing I ever pushed myself to do. Well worth every dollar and moment of life spent :)
