They were some of the most incredible people I have ever met, and working with them was an extremely rewarding experience. My time spent in Arusha was equally amazing, and thanks to GIVE, I can now officially cross African safari off of my ..."

    This was the experience of a lifetime! I highly recommend to anyone even considering going abroad and volunteering to do this! I had never been out of the country before and I decided to go all by myself to Tanzania. I am so happy I did this and I can't wait until my next trip! The relationship with the community is unlike anything you would think and the projects we work on are important and necessary. GIVE is amazing and the whole experience was incredible.

    Where do I even start? Two things I've wanted to do with my life are see the world and help people in it; I can't imagine that there's a better organization than GIVE to help someone do those things. To start, the employees at GIVE are some of the most passionate and kind people I've ever met. They are also organized and driven, and that made my trip a million times better than I expected. GIVE also taught me countless lessons. We learned through teaching English and working on the GIVE school about how to help people without handing them things; this way we can empower those who stand beside us rather than thinking those who might need help are below us. Seeing the village of Kairo and the city of Arusha taught me that the people of Africa are hardly below those in the US. They are smart and resourceful with what they have, even though what they have might not be a lot, while many in America have more than enough and use it in the wrong ways. I'm humbled by what I've experienced with GIVE and honored to have been able to work alongside them to make handprints not footprints, and to plant the roots of change in this world. I HIGHLY recommend joining GIVE on an excursion if your looking to see and make a difference in the world. I'm already looking forward to the next trip I'm able to go on. Asante sana, GIVE!

    My experience with GIVE was beyond anything I could have imagined it to be. Your fellow volunteers are all amazing, it takes a certain kind of person to drop everything for three weeks to help others, so know that everyone around you is just as excited and passionate as you will be. The same thing can be said about the guides, they serve as friends who share the stoke of the trip while also providing guidance along the way. Being surrounded by your fellow volunteers is awesome and all, but it's the locals that you meet everywhere you go that truly make the trip special. This is a volunteer excursion as the name of the organization entails, but the person who comes out the most impacted is the volunteer. The locals bring you in, make you smile, laugh, and just feel a sense of belonging in the short time that you're there. From the people you meet in the village you stay in, to the people you meet on the epic adventure days, the common thing you will experience with these people is an appreciation for life that is unlike anything else. I have never been to a place where the people were as happy as they were all the time, and it really makes you reflect changes your outlook on your life back home in the most positive of ways. My experience with GIVE has honestly been the most amazing time of my life, and I look forward to volunteering with them again in the near future.

    I have been to Tanzania twice now with GIVE, the most recent being a double trip. Making the decision over a year ago to join the GIVE family was absolutely the best decision I have ever made. The community of Kairo is unlike any I have experienced before. It has kept me coming back and will continue to for years to come. The locals are the most wonderful people with beautiful souls and I feel so lucky to have gotten the chance to form relationships with them. This makes the work we do in Kairo even more rewarding. Education is the most important and sustainable gift you can give to a community and being a part of those projects is an indescribable feeling. No matter what your age, career path or stage in life, I strongly encourage anyone and everyone to take this adventure of a lifetime. You will not regret it.

    Absolutely amazing trip! I was a bit nervous going to a new continent with a whole group of people I'd never met before but it turned out to be the best thing I've ever done. GIVE is an amazing program that makes everything go so smoothly. From signing up until the plane ride back home, the guides and GIVE team are always there to ensure that you are well taken care of. The guides are so knowledgable about the people and the culture and they were such a great help with transitioning into the community. This trip was life changing and I recommend it to anyone who is open to changing themselves in a big way, as well as changing their world.

    I signed up for a double trip in Tanzania this summer and it was the most incredible experience. I had both Domenica Blasucci and John Miller as my guides and they both made my trip so amazing. From the moment we arrived I felt part of the community and our guides always encouraged us to stop and talk to people in the village which made our time in Kairo all the more rewarding. Being able to be part of both the teaching and construction projects means that GIVE provides you with the opportunity to be a part of every impact made in Kairo. I had the once in a lifetime opportunity to teach the Masai and I will never forget the students that I was able to become so close to. GIVE is such an incredible organisation that gives you the chance to build strong relationships with people in a community you would otherwise never have heard of. I have learnt so much more than I could have imagined from my guides, the women and men in the community and the students I was teaching. Could not recommend GIVE more...GO TEAM HUMAN!!

    My GIVE trip to Tanzania was absolutely amazing and beyond life changing! Our guides were so funloving, adventurous and organized. They always made me feel 100% safe during our travel sand during our stays on Zanzibar, in Dar Es Salaam, Arusha and Lake Manayara/Tarengire National Parks. I always felt so important and loved by the guides. The volunteer work we did was so fun and so rewarding. Teaching english to people of all ages was so amazing because they all truly wanted to learn. And I've never had so much fun doing construction work! I would recommend this trip to anyone and everyone!!

    I wish I could go back! The leaders were incredible and sweet, and you felt like a family with the rest of the group, making good-byes hard at the end. The experiences you will take with you for the rest of your life and make you take a second look at where you are in life right now and re-evaluate your priorities and needs.

    Going on the Tanzania trip was by far the best decision of my life! Traveling to Zanzibar, specifically Kairo, was such an eye opening experience. Their way of life is so different, but everyone is always so happy. They are such a welcoming, hard working community and I am forever grateful for the time I got to spend exploring the village and interacting with the locals. We also went over to Arusha which was also an awesome experience because we were able to spend time with some of the women nearby and we had some awesome views too. GIVE is THE group to go through if you are interested in traveling abroad! The guides and staff are amazing people, and they only add to this unforgettable experience! I'm looking forward to the next trip I go on with GIVE!

Kilimanjaro, which was one of the most challenging things I have ever done, but more than worth it. I had the time of my life, and I can whole-heartedly recommend this excursion to anyone looking for a truly life-changing experience.
