Wild Elephant Program
Submitted by Ryan Leys - West Lorne | April 20, 2018
My time in Sri Lanka was second to none! Getting to help conserve wild elephants while seeing many other species of mammals, birds, and reptiles was incredible! The staff become good friends if you stay long enough and the food alone is worth staying for! Some of the best I’ve ever eaten! I highly recommend this program to anyone who loves conservation or nature!
Amazing experience in Livingstone.

Amazing experience in Livingstone. IVHQ provided the assurance and support that made it easy to jump in a plane and go across the world to a a place I've never been. I'm looking forward to going back to Livingstone and to make volunteering more of a regular occurrence. I would strongly recommend using IVHQ to any new or seasoned volunteers looking for experience outside the norm and or their country.
IVHQ: Trip of a Lifetime
Submitted by Elizabeth - Temple University | April 18, 2018
I volunteered with IVHQ in Belgium working on the "Mobile Library" project to assist with the immense refugee population in Brussels. This project provided a recreational outlet for the homeless. From start to finish I had constant support from the IVHQ team. I have volunteered through other programs and have found program fees to be overly expensive, but IVHQ offered a reasonable price and a quality program. The team I worked with during my program was "Serve the City". I have never found a group of more like-minded people and this made my placement the perfect fit for me. I stayed at the Norton House where the hosts provided us with a full breakfast and lunch each day. I have dietary requirements which I am normally able to deal with on my own, but they went out of the way to make sure that I was properly accommodated. Overall, I would highly recommend IVHQ! I am looking forward to my next trip with them.

From beginning to end, this trip exceeded all my expectations. I went in with an open mind, compassionate heart, and wanting to see - everything. From the introduction to the coordinator (who, by the way, will become your best friend in Jamaica) to meeting the staff/children at the school - I couldn't have asked for a warmer reception. Mon-Fri, we volunteered and had the evening to ourselves. Often I would play with the neighborhood soccer team or the local kids on our street. Weekends were filled with Jamaican adventures and depending on your mood, you could end up at a beach party/party bus or just lounging poolside to recover ;). It was an unforgettable experience and the way the program is set up, I was able to really bond with the children and I think they bonded with me - we still FaceTime regularly... :)
IVHQ Bali will change you.
Submitted by Sanyu - London Metropolitan | April 16, 2018
I went into IVHQ looking for an organization that is reasonably costly for the volunteer to be able to actually give quality assistance to whatever is they want to support. It was my first time volunteering abroad and it had exceeded my expectations above and beyond. IVHQ is a very well organized volunteering website that gives accurate information, I had called in and spoken to the office on the phone many of times and the staff are professional and absolutely lovely. Volunteering at Green Lion Bali was life altering and the love of the staff there and many life lessons I learned there have all been thanks to IVHQ.
Thank you guys!
