    I have never been so affected by a trip or a group of people in my life. Give has offered me the chance to grow as a person and help others who I believe are deserving of every possible opportunity I have, and they have given me more than I thought I would receive. They have given me a new family, a new home, and a new mission and passion in life. GIVE motivated me to change my major to sustainability, to educate all those in my life on ways in which we can be less harmful to our environment and to educate them on different cultures. I have learned more about myself and who I am. I now am part of a community that will forever be connected worldwide. The work itself was rewarding in various ways and that combined with really immersing ourselves in their culture multiplied that reward by thousands. I have been abroad before and have one volunteer work in the past but nothing compares to this trip and these people.

    Give Nicaragua changed my life, my perspective, how I view the world and how I view other people. It was a breathtaking experience that I wish everyone was able to do at least once, (even though once is not enough). The guides were incredible and I miss them so much it's not even funny. Go by yourself, meet new AMAZING friends for life. Like going on this trip is so eye opening, it'll make you realize that what you're doing back at home isn't what you want to do. Follow your dreams, give back, go on a give trip.

    Going to Nicaragua with GIVE has been the best experience of my life. I would recommend this trip to literally anyone from any background. I learned so much myself and this beautiful world we live in. I can't wait to go back to Nicaragua. If you are even slightly interested in going on this trip, DO IT!

    My trip to Nicaragua was the best two weeks of my life! Such an eye opening and rewarding experience to be immersed in the the communities of Jiquilillo and Little Corn Island. My guides Teresa and Daniela were so helpful and wonderful. Monty's surf lodge is an amazing place to stay and exceeded my expectations. Cool spot in Little Corn was amazing as well. Both places are similar in that you stay in a bunk about the size of a dorm room with 2 or 3 beds, a fan, and bed nets. I never once felt unsafe on this trip, our guides would never put us in an unsafe situation. Sand boarding down Cerro Negro volcano was absolutely amazing!!! Since I went over December-January we also got to release about 100 newborn sea turtles which was a really cool experience as well. I would 100% recommend this trip! If you have any questions the GIVE organization is very helpful over the phone.

    My trip to Nicaragua with GIVE was an amazing anlife changing experience! From living with a family in Granada to Cool Spot on Little Corn Island all of the accommodations were amazing and the people were even better. I have so many amazing memories of interacting with locals both while volunteering as well as during down time. Everyone is super friendly and welcomes you with open arms as if you've known them for years. Being a voluntourist with GIVE has opened my eyes to so many different opportunities and completely changed my perspective of our planet. If you have an opportunity to go on this trip I would recommend it 10/10. One of the best experiences of my life so far and am looking forward to going on even more GIVE trips in the future!

    I had been on a trip with GIVE before to Thailand but my more recent trip to Nicaragua absolutely blew my mind and reaffirmed the idea that this is an amazing organization doing incredible things for people all over the world through sustainable development and cultural immersion!

    GIVE changed my life. Without having gone on a GIVE trip, I would have negatively impacted the world much more since. The leaders on these trip are extremely experienced and know how to inspire every single volunteer to be a better human being, all while having the most fun two weeks of your life. If everyone were to go on a GIVE trip, the world would be a much better place.

    It may sound a bit cheesy but my experience with GIVE was genuinely beyond words. In my time in Nicaragua I have experienced so much, with every day ending in a deep sense of gratification shared between everyone in the group. From the local community, guides and other volunteers I only ever experienced a compassion and companionship that made me feel at home even when thousands of miles away from all my family and friends in the UK. Accommodation and food was consistently high quality, and there was always plenty of bottled water available. We stayed in two locations, first Monty's Beach lodge in Jiquilillo, then Cool Spot in Little Corn Island. Both were absolutely beautiful with cheerful, friendly staff and good facilities and catering. Travelling during the trip was very well handled by the guides, making it very easy and stress-free for all of the volunteers. The endlessly friendly and fun people I was with made even sitting in a coach or plane a good time that flew by. From start to finish this trip exceeded my already high expectations, and I am so glad to have taken the leap and gone for it instead of staying home in my comfort zone. I spent a long time deciding whether I was independent and confident enough to be able to go on this excursion, and if you are feeling the same I can't urge you enough to do it. The work you would be doing really makes a difference, on the communities in Nicaragua, Thailand and Tanzania, and very noticeably on yourself. I cannot explain through text how amazing this trip was, you have to go out there and find out for yourself.

    Going into my trip I didn't have any expectations because I had no idea what to expect. But if I had expectations the trip would have exceeded all of them. The places we stayed were amazing. We had nice bathrooms and beds and the people at all of them were super nice. Our guides Sammie, Joel, and Teresa were amazing people. If you were sick they would help you however they could and could talk to you about anything. They all want you have the best experience you can and really care about everyone. Being in Nicaragua really changed my life. I was able to see how global warming really effected people and will always remember that from now on. If I could I would go back on the Nicaragua trip because it was the best experience of my life.

    Nicaragua was amazing!! I felt SO safe, included, immersed, and a part of a family. The guides were awesome and really present, they weren't scared to be part of the group, and at the same time were organized and kept the trip flowing smoothly. Overall, everything i went into my trip worried about, the food, traveling, the people, exercise, were all easier and more enjoyable than even being at home! I can not begin to describe how this trip changed me and how my experience was, but I can say that i didn't want to leave, and would be back there right now if i could! I trusted the people at Monte's surf place and in Jiquilillo so much, that when I misplaced my money the only thought that went through my head was "I must have miss placed it, it will show up." there wasn't a fiber in my being that believed it would be stolen, and it wasn't, I left it in the bathroom and someone else turned it in. to be able to say that while i was in a foreign country and had that much trust with the people around me, more then i trust the people in my home town, is astounding to me. The experience I had with GIVE has altered the way that act at home, I have a new awareness on the effect of my actions and life choices. I would say, make this trip possible for you, no matter what. I can only speak for myself, but it was worth everything I put into this trip, money, time and all.
