Review for Go! Malawi, Hebron, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Friends of Little Field Home has become a huge part of my life ever since I started volunteering for them and I am so happy. I originally started off as a 6-month volunteer through an internship program at my school. Now, I am about to prepare for my second 6-month trip with this organization. Friends of Little Field Home has an incredible mission to help the small country of Malawi, Africa. They not only want to help by donating and funding projects, but the organization continues to become a part of the community by interacting with the locals in such a unique way. They allow their volunteers to fully submerge themselves in the rich culture of Malawi which, personally, gave me a first-hand experience into the Malawian way of life. During my time there, I lived like a Malawian; I hauled water on my head, cooked with firewood, and lived with the very basic necessities. It was the most rewarding experience I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. I was given a lot of creative responsibility allowing me to make my own lesson plans for the children and to use my own ideas for specific projects. This is something that was very exciting to me. I can wholeheartedly say that this organization is definitely something to rave about and will always be a part of my life.

Role:  Volunteer & I taught English to a wide range of ages on-site at the orphanage.
