Review for FNE International, E Weymouth , MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After volunteering with FNEI for four consecutive years in Nicaragua and Peru, I can say these trips have been some of the greatest and most memorable experiences of my life so far. I've been able to help build houses, work in special needs schools, help out in medical clinics, all while working alongside other volunteers as well as locals. You build a very personal connection to the area and the work on these trips. Michael Cipoletti is one of my favorite people on the planet. The man works non-stop to help other people, and I feel lucky to know him and to have been involved in this work, even if I only played a small part.

Review for FNE International, E Weymouth , MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I consider my time spent with FNE International in Nicaragua (three trips so far) to be the greatest experience of my life. On these trips I was immersed in the culture of the area, and met families and people in need and saw their problems in person. Working on the sustainable housing projects I was able to learn about plausible solutions to the many problems that communities in developing nations face, and by the end of the trip I began to see the difference my group's work was making, and there is no greater reward than that. I was 15 when I went alone on my first trip, and since then I have brought my father and my best friend along with me in the following two years. I plan on going on as many FNE trips as I can, and I would recommend it to anyone.
