Mfangano Island, Kenya
Fantastic experience with important local project
Simon Flato
From the moment we met David Agagwa we felt extremely welcome on the island Mfangano and in the local community. He is the founder and executive director, and we stayed together with him and his family for about 2 weeks. During this time, we helped some around the farm, but mainly we helped with the social project by meeting the children and widows, documenting the projects and creating a website and campaign for donations, so that Wagego would be able to invest to make it more self sustainable. We had an unforgettable time and would recommend anyone with interested in a meaningful experience to contact Wagego!
Dakar, Senegal
Event Coordinator Assistant
Sokhna Mame Diarra
I have and continue to volunteer as a Event Planner and assistant for QUEEN SHEBA VILLAGE since February 2017. What I especially enjoy is the social education of meeting many people from different countries and backgrounds. The diversity is good for someone my age because I learn how the founder Queen Sheba D Cisse teaches us many different aspects of her culture incorporated into Senegalese traditions while also serving and managing guests. I learn something new everyday volunteering with the QUEEN SHEBA VILLAGE organization.
Merazonia Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center
Perfect Place
Carla Hammer
Merazonia un lugar mágico a la mitad de la Selva donde despiertas con el ruido del río y duermes bajo un cielo lleno de estrellas. Merazonia esta lleno de cosas increíbles y si decides explorar todos los días hay algo nuevo que ver, el trabajo es inigualable y los animales están en las mejores condiciones posibles, En Merazonia te sientes en casa desde que lo pisas, te sientes útil y ves como tu esfuerzo vale toda la pena aunque estés cansado y mojado por la lluvia, la gente es INCREIBLE, llena de energía y de ganas de hacer este santuario el MEJOR lugar del mundo, durante tus días libres siempre puedes darte un chapuzón en sus bellas cascadas, hasta ir a Baños al gran columpio. Es el lugar donde te olvidas de todos los lujos pero eres el más feliz de esa manera, mi experiencia ahí fue de las mejores de mi vida.

Merazonia a magical place in the middle of the jungle where you wake up with the noise of the river and you sleep under a sky full of stars. Merazonia is full of incredible things and if you decide to explore every day there is something new to see, the work is unparalleled and the animals are in the best possible conditions, In Merazonia you feel at home since you step on it, you feel useful and you see how your effort is worth it even if you are tired and wet from the rain, the people are INCREDIBLE, full of energy and desire to make this sanctuary the BEST place in the world, during your free days you can always take a dip in its beautiful waterfalls or go to Baños to the big swing. It's the place where you forget all the luxuries but you're the happiest that way, my experience is the best of my life.
