I wanted to have an international experience and combine it with an internship in Public Health. I ended up going with GVA to Uganda, Ashley at GVA arranged for me to intern with a hospital in Mukono, a lively town east of Kampala.

I had an amazing experience; they found the perfect hospital for me to work at. GVA team treated me well from the first time I ever sent them an email regarding placement positions in Africa.

I had mentioned to them that I would love to work with a pediatrician and that I also liked more surgical procedures, so they placed me in a hospital where I could shadow a pediatrician in the afternoons as well as work in the ER in the mornings.

I lived with other volunteers and interns at a group house, and that was amazing. We hung out at night and on weekends. Some of them traveled together, but I went on my own with local GVA guide to see gorillas on a safari at Bwindi national park.

I was able to connect with the staff in the hospital and at the group house. The GVA coordinators in Uganda were also extremely helpful to me. Lawrence (my safari guide) would always call to check on me and would even call to simply invite me to get some coffee in the best parts of town so I could get to know the city a little better.

I truly felt they had a passion in getting people to volunteer and explore their country. I highly recommend Go Volunteer Africa to anyone with a dream to volunteer in Africa.

I booked a Wildlife Conservation Project in Botswana with Go Volunteer Africa in January 2020. Jim Kruche was my contact. I paid $1620 for volunteering 4 weeks at the Moremi Game Reserve.. Because I was already in Zambia, I travelled to Maun, Botswana where the project would start. On the 16th of January, three days before the start of the project I received an email from Jim Kruche that the program was cancelled. After this cancellation neither Jim Kruche or anyone else of this organization gave a reply on my request for contact. Finally, on 23 th of February, about 5 weeks later somebody gave me a response, mr Noah Kande. He apologized and promised to sort this out. But guess what, I never heard anything of them again! No project, no money. They are an award winning organization! They should be so ashamed of themselves.
