Tom "This trip was easily the best two weeks of my life. The two weeks flew by as the entire time was spent doing amazing activities. Whether it was the teaching some of the locals, constructing the school in the village, or swimming in the Indian Ocean, there was never a dull moment. There was no stress either as Give took care of food, transport, and accommodation perfectly. I could not recommend a t..."

    This is my third GIVE trip and I genuinely loved all of them! They’re totally different experience but each trip is just as life changing and impactful! Can’t wait to keep working with them:)

    I may move to Tanzania! From the second I landed I felt taken care of and welcomed into the community on Zanzibar. It was so much fun to wake up to smiling kids everyday and work alongside the local boys. I had only ever heard of the Masai in history classes, but I got to actually teach them English. Everyday had something new to offer from teaching, to working, to wild dolphins and safaris! I've been to Africa before but I never felt like I was truly experiencing the rich culture of such an amazing continent. I finally got that here in Zanzibar. I felt like I was a part of something so real and raw- a culture that is still so vibrant and adventurous. Then being able to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro was the trek of a lifetime. That was always just a pipe dream but GIVE helped me make it a reality, especially being a broke college student. I felt so supported through fundraising and all my concerns were answered. I can't wait to go back, definitely with GIVE.

    I loved everything about this trip! You hear about trips that "changed peoples lives" and you doubt that it really happens, but this one definitely changed mine. It gave me a greater appreciation of everything I have, while at the same time showing me how important non-material things are. Although the beautiful people of Kairo didn't have as much as we do, they were all so happy and supportive of one another. Many people would close their shops to attend our english classes or help us build the school. Volunteering itself was also amazing! I loved my students so much and they gave me a greater appreciation for learning. Construction made me feel like I was really making a difference and also showed me how strong I really am. We also swam with wild dolphins and went on a safari so basically it was the greatest two weeks of my life and I am forever grateful for this organization.

    GIVE gave me the opportunity to have one of the most eye-opening experiences of my life. They stress the importance of building a relationship between the volunteers and the locals, who can each learn from each other, and they stress sustainability in order to build upon the work that GIVE does even when GIVErs are no longer there. My trip through GIVE Tanzania was amazing because of the coordination behind the scenes by its employees, which enabled me to focus on building relationships and helping to better the world.

    A great way to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro with highly qualified and intelligent guide staff. Always there when you need them, they never left you alone. Thorough knowledge of Kilimanjaro and mountaineering skills. Attentive to your well being and if you’re up to the task. Would go again any time. And I’m 62 years old.

    I had such an amazing time living alongside the locals and working in a community that you could tell really appreciated all of the help we were providing. The local men would close their shops in the morning and help work on the school in order to get the work done faster. Connecting with the locals in the classroom and on the beach if they had a shop was the most rewarding experience. I was able to teach a wonderful woman, mom, friend, shop owner and student named Maryam. Most people knew her because she has the cutest daughter ever, Israa. I was able to get to know her on a deeper level, even with such a large language barrier.

    Any experience with GIVE is sure to be life changing and an adventure worth taking. GIVE is deeply involved with the village in Zanzibar, and all of the work being done is sustainable. The accommodations, meals, transportation, and the itinerary are all organized very well and enjoyable. The people you meet in the community and in your group will become your lifelong friends and add to the overall amazing experience of the trip!
