    My trip with GIVE was life changing as cliché as that may sound at first. But it really did open my eyes to a new culture and other ways of life. I learned how people on the other side of the world spend their days and what it takes to maintain their lifestyle. GIVE is amazing at making sure this information isn't just thrown at its volunteers. It's a program based on genuine immersion and education through locations, stuff, communities, volunteer initiatives on sustainability and even adventure days. They also helped me learn how to take what I learned and apply it to my life here in the states. It's program that never stops and i love it. I've gone twice and I'm preparing for my third trip to Tanzania and even WILD!!!

    My trip with GIVE to Tanzania was AMAZING!!! It was one of the best trips of my life and I highly recommend this trip for anyone. The guides were awesome and very helpful. My flight ended up getting delayed a lot making me miss the transportation with the rest of the group but they emailed me and got in contact with me anyway they could and arranged new transportation for us to the accommodations. The whole trip was very well organized and run well. I loved the balance of teaching English to the locals and working construction at the school. You were really able to get to interact with the locals and see how they live. There was also plenty of free time to explore the village and hangout with the locals and other volunteers. We were also able to do some tourist activities which made it interesting to see Zanzibar and Tanzania in both the tourist way and the service way. I also highly recommend doing the Kilimanjaro add on. The guides and porters were amazing and the experience was incredible. It seems very intimidating at first but it is very doable and completely worth it. I cannot put into words how amazing this trip was for me, it was truly life changing and I would do anything to be able to go back.

    This was an amazing experience! My first time traveling abroad ever and I fell completely in love with the people and culture of Tanzania! I didn't want to leave! I have met so many lifelong friends on this trip! Went on so many adventures, like snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, and a two-day safari! I highly recommend this trip or any trip with GIVE Volunteers! Tupo Pamoja!

    I recommend everyone go on this life changing trip! You will meet beautiful individuals, a wonderful community and make life-lasting friendships with both volunteers and locals. It was an incredible experince being welcomed so whole-heartedly by the GIVE team and the community within which we were volunteering! I truly did not know what it would be like, but I was welcomed with such heart and soul and kindness, and I can't wait to be back among these wonderful people, friends I've made forever, achieving grand things for these communities that so strongly need our help right now. This programme creates sustainability, whereby the community can go on independently, using the resources of their lands which GIVE helps them turn into productive means, once GIVE itself moves onto projects that need help just as direly. This is the perfect balance! Live to GIVE, and go on this adventure, because I can't describe how whole my heart felt in Tanzania - on Zanzibar among the locals; at our two incredible, humbling and heart-warming safaris, where we learnt about the animals and what the government is doing to prevent poaching; every night sharing good vibes and bonding and laughing and singing and dancing; climbing Mount Kilimanjaro past various layers of ecosystems and through three levels of clouds to emerge at the top, looking down on the brilliant world below. Go and fall in love with this place and its beautiful culture, nature and people.

    My time in Tanzania was the most amazing, humbling and growing experience i have ever had. GIVE and all they stand for really shows you the world- what it means to be a global citizen, what it means to be sustainable, how to love yourself, eachother and strangers and how to live intentionally. My trip was not only educational but so much fun. there was a great mix of fun adventure activities, construction, teaching, relax time and community emerson. the opportunity to climb Kili was the best thing i could have picked to do- a once in a life time experience surrounded by my best friends from the 2 weeks prior. i love the community on zanzibar and the lifestyle there. the people of Kairo and of GIVE are some of the best humans in the world and you will leave with a full heart, a lifetime of memories and ideas that will change the world.

    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!
