I have volunteered twice with All Hands. My first experience with the organisation was in 2010 when I joined Project Sungai Geringging in West Sumatra Indonesia. It was a wonderful life changing experience for me, my fellow volunteers and the community in which we worked. I still have very close friendships with volunteers and locals from this project and have returned to the area twice already. My second volunteer experience was in Project Tohoku Japan. It was so rewarding to be able to work on a second project, that was much larger than the first. Once again I made friends for life within the organisation and the community. Both projects have given me more faith and confidence in myself and with humanitarian and aid projects around the world. The staff do an incredible job of co-ordinating the incredibly diverse array of volunteers and do a fantastic job working with and supporting the local communities recover from unimaginable disasters.
