Review for ARMS OF LOVE INTERNATIONAL, Costa Mesa, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

If you are thinking about volunteering abroad, this is absolutely the best organization to partner with! You will feel so comfortable at Arms of Love that you will never want to leave. This authentic and trustworthy organization deeply values each volunteer. They have extensive experience with volunteer teams of all shapes and sizes. They specialize in using the talents you have to address the many needs of their organization. Some examples of service projects have included construction projects, gardening, assisting in the classrooms, taking inventory on donations, and leading devotionals. There is also time spent planning and leading daily activities for the kids. You can also couple your visit with other outreach projects and team travel days to see and learn more about the country.

My fist volunteer experience in Nicaragua was so profoundly impactful that I now volunteer at Arms of Love every year, both state side and in country. I also hope to soon visit their sister location in the Philippines. The staff, children, and community and incredibly welcoming. The country is beautiful. The experience is revitalizing!
