I am incredibly grateful to the GivingWay Team, because through their platform I was able to find exactly what I was looking for and I would recommend it to anyone planning or even just considering a volunteering experience abroad. -

They were receptive, supportive and encouraging before, during and after my volunteering period - Thanks GivinWay Team! -

Ho, Ghana
Incredible, impactful, and safe.
Joe Pelt
I cannot say enough good things about Richard and HCDP. I spent three months with HCDP, and each day was a new best day of my life. Richard and his team are incredibly hospital and help you integrate into and learn the culture and values of those in Ho! I felt at home from the time I arrived. I never once felt in any kind of danger. The person I lived with was amazing. I made an entire new family in Ghana. I would recommend traveling to HCDP to stay to any one at any age! It is mostly college students, but my mom also came the last two weeks of my three-month stay and LOVED her time there also.
Richard is extremely flexible and works for you to have a great experience. The food was delicious nad plentiful.

If you are looking to travel and volunteer, HCDP is the place to go. This is a trip you will tell your kids about and your kids' kids about.

If you ever have any questions please feel free to reach out to me at joepelt@hotmail.com or on Facebook!

The Director of LUYODEFO, Ndungo Samuel, has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He cares very deeply for the people of Uganda and dedicates his life to his life-saving, empowering programs in order to help the most vulnerable of Kasese. If you have the opportunity to work with him and his team, you will not regret it. It has been our honor to partner with him and be a part of the amazing work of LUYODEFO.
