Victoria Hall Abroad

Victoria Hall - Volunteering in India

"If I had any advice for future volunteers, it would be to stay opened minded, have the enthusiasm to study and live in their culture and don't expect too little nor too much. Have no expectations as you don't know what experience you will return with! One thing is for sure - it will be a life-changing one."


Victoria Greenhalgh - Volunteering in Fiji

"I’m sure everyone would agree to say that the three weeks you spend teaching the children will be the most rewarding weeks of your life."
