Review for GALAPAGOS ICE ORGANIZATION IMMERSE CONNECT EVOLVE, Charlottesvle, VA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

About two years ago I went travelling in South America. I had always wanted to go to the Galapagos Islands as well as volunteer with a help organisation which was why Galapagosice was exactly what I was looking for. Unlike many other organisations you only have to pay for accommodation and food. I stayed with an Ecuadorian family and was very happy there, not only because they were lovely and fed me well, but also because I improved my Spanish a lot. Emily who runs Galapagosice was great, really helpful and keen to make sure that you get out what you want from the volunteering experience. The fact that it is such a small organisation run essentially by Emily and her brother means it is very personal. Definitely one of the best things I've done where I not only improved Spanish and got a taste for non profit work but also made close friends I am still in touch with.

Role:  Volunteer & I did two things. First of all I helped set up a library with a fellow volunteer. Secondly I helped put together a proposal for the community Bellavista focusing on how they were to increase tourism and thereby become more sustainable and less dependent o.
