    Definitely one of the best trips I have ever done! Would definitely recommend GIVE Tanzania! Everyone in Kairo, Zanzibar was absolutely wonderful and welcoming, and all the guides were/are incredible people. Whether you're covered in cement at the worksite or teaching English to younger students or the Maasai, you'll have a wonderful time with GIVE. I also recommend doing the extension and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro! The hike is difficult, but definitely doable (and this is coming from someone who has never hiked anywhere near this much before). My recommendation for Kilimanjaro is listen to your guides, since they have done this hike countless times, and listen to your body. Pole, pole (slowly, slowly). GIVE also has locations in Thailand, Laos, and Nicaragua, which I would definitely recommend taking a look at as well! Asante sana to GIVE and everyone involved in this program!

    My GIVE trip was everything I could have wished for and so much more. GIVE really does inspire people and care so much about the communities that they are in. They ask the locals what they need done, and train them to work alongside us every day. The locals are all so loving, caring, happy, and welcoming. There wasn't one time where I felt like a random stranger or out of place. Kairo is home, and I can't wait to be back.

    This trip was everything I had hoped for and more. It is pricey but worth every penny. GIVE respects the community that they work/ live in. They don't just go in and tell them what needs to be done, they ask what they can do to improve the community. Our tour guides were amazing. They treat you like a friend you have known your whole life. They want you to have an amazing experience so they work hard to do so. I felt safe and comfortable the whole time I was there. They have everything pre planned so nothing unexpected happens.

    I went to Tanzania with GIVE a couple weeks ago and it was an absolutely amazing experience. Living and working in the village of Kairo for two weeks was beyond incredible. The people in the community are so welcoming and helpful and really want to get to know us as much as we want to get to know them. Coming into the trip I was a little worried at how good of a teacher I'd be in the english education classes, but after one morning of teaching, those worries were long gone. Our guide Sammie made it super comfortable and easy in the classrooms so we were able to take over and help teach the students. We worked with the Masai men which was really cool. They were all super motivated and excited to be there which just made it even more exciting for us to be with them too. Construction was also really fun and a bunch of the locals from Kairo helped us too which was great. Seeing them actively participate in bettering their community was really moving. I also climbed Kili which was so insane. Summiting the tallest freestanding mountain on earth was something I'll never forget, especially being able to do it with some of the greatest people I met through GIVE. Hiking and camping on Kili was so surreal. I'd occasionally just look up at the summit and start tearing up because of how excited I was to be doing it. I would absolutely recommend GIVE Tanzania as well as the Kilimanjaro add-on. One of the best experiences I've had so far.

    GIVE is something I recommend that anyone gets involved in if they have a desire to travel and experience life outside what they know. Also, it's good for people who want to travel but don't know where to start because GIVE plans all the activities and the only thing you have to worry about it embracing as much of it as you can. Highly recommend!

    This trip was more than I could have ever hoped for. You become immersed in the culture and you actually make friends with the locals. If you're looking for something more meaningful than a vacation, this is it. Not only are you going to have an amazing time swimming with dolphins, suntanning on the beach, snorkelling, and going on safaris, but you're also going to have an incredible time volunteering. I feel as though my volunteering has made a serious impact in the village of Kairo. I can't say enough great things about this trip. GIVE will give you the best experience for the money. Honestly, every cent put into this trip was 100% worth it.

    Words can't express how much I've learned and experienced during this trip. It's an emotional and cultural rollercoaster that will open your eyes on a whole new world out there. GIVE's organisation was excellent. I've always felt safe and well taken care of. Listen to your guides and dive into the best trip of your life!

The GIVE staff (Sammie Rothney, John Miller, Sarah Levitt, Alexis Smith, and Khamis Bin Alawy) are amazing at their jobs and also just some of the most incredible humans I've ever met. One of the things I love about GIVE is that they pride themselves on developing and maintaining a personal and positive relationship with the host community. This really makes for an immersive experience. Living and working alongside the locals, developing those personal relationships, is one of the things that sets GIVE apart from many other volunteer organizations. I will forever be grateful to GIVE for the lifelong friendships and memories I made on this trip.

    This trip couldn't exceed more my expectations. The organization, comitment and approachability of the staff made this trip THE best trip I've ever had in my life. You really feel at home away from home with the GIVE team and the community you are working in. So in doubt just choose GIVE Volunteering program, it will definitely change your life in the most positive way.
