The Volunteer Build experience

It was a trip which will not only live long in our memories but will have changed the girls’ outlooks on life in a very positive way.

As someone who has taken teams overseas several times, this trip was fantastically organised. An experience not to be missed, and as a group we can’t recommend it highly enough.
