I spent 3 human and intensive weeks within the organization association. I was able to meet incredible international volunteers who supported me with education and kindness. The missions were very interesting and I loved being in contact with the locals who left a mark in my heart forever. The apartment and shared accommodation were very pleasant. The management organized a farewell party for me, which really touched me. I recommend

Lohana is a very proactive, sensitive and kind person. She was in the Casa project and the elderly project. She helped in many ways: homework, home visits, sports and art workshops and above all giving a lot of attention and affection to those who need it.
Thanks for everything, Lohana.

Bernabe, Ingrid and the whole team made us feel very welcome at the organization. It's a real worth while project that the locals get great value from. The setup is great it just needs more people and more money to do more good for the local community. We gained a lot of knowledge about the local situation and helped us understand the country more than before. Thanks to all involved. Andy and Ingrid

We volunteered for 1 week which was way too short! Bernabe and Ingrid run a really good sociable community charity. My husband Andy and I helped in the Casa project, an after school club for children aged 6-12 (approx). The children were so loving, so warm, funny and cheeky, well mannered and when our short week came to an end we were showered with lovely heart warming messages which made us choke. We lived in the volunteering house with the other volunteers and we all got on and went on a day trip and a night out together. I can truly recommend this charity and hope to go back one day.

This was my first experience with world packers! Volunteering with the organization was an amazing experience. Bernabé and Ingrid are fully committed to the organization and are fully engaged in its direct projects of as well as partnering up with other community projects. I worked alongside volunteers for a week and look forward to my next volunteer opportunity with the organization to be for a month. The children I worked with at Projecto Casa are vibrant, appreciative and loving. They have forever left a loving imprint in my heart!

Monica is a very hard-working person, she adapted very well to the reality of the projects and the volunteer residence. She is very empathetic, supportive and sensitive. She visited several projects and helped everyone a lot, very committed to the work and well-being of all the children. We know she will return and we are waiting for her.
Thanks for everything, Monica.
