I think Volunteer World is a great platform for whoever would like to do a volunteer experience but doesn't know exactly where and how. The overview of the projects and the possibility to filter them by duration, location and type of volunteering was amazing! Highly recommended!

We are not happy about the host family.
They drove six of us in a car for four passengers. We never had seatbelt. Their driving is dangerous (don't respect the speed limite, passe in the red light in 100km/h, don't respect stop, braking suddenly in front of the radars, using Phone frequently when they are driving ) we need to seat in back of a car without seat (obviously without seatbelt). And they clain they are cheaper than uber but it's rarelly the case and moslty the difference in price in not worth our safety. They are often late (at the morning and at the afertoon). The first week, we were waiting twice for 45mins and once for 20 mins in the cold weather and fortunately it was not raining.

They want us to pay for a wifi service (100rands/week = 7€ approximately) it's too expensive for the low wifi (everytimes the wifi doesn't work and always too slow). The electicity cuts of three times a Day and the wifi cuts with it).
We tried to take about driving and wifi with our host Mother but nothing has changed.

It's forbiden to wash our underwear by ourself. Even if we have just this to wash, we need to pay a for a wash machine.

However, we are happy about the project. Our supervisors are very Nice and they are able to help us with the dogs.

To summarize, we recommended the project but not the host family.

The website takes a long time to load. In addition, it is sometimes a bit confusing because you have so much choice. However, I think it's great that there are such platforms and you can relatively easily make a volunteer program.

I thought than volunteer organization process is extremely complex, but with you this important step was simple and complex. Thank you!

It is a very good platform to search for a volunteer project. Otherwise it would be impossible to find the little foundations.

Hi Linda,

Volunteer World is a great platform. I am more concerned on the volunteer programm " Stay Wild". May you share the link where I can do a review about the program?

Best regards,

I have had a smooth, wonderful experience so far with Volunteer World! Communication has been prompt and clear. I would give five stars but the process in not complete yet but I cannot see why everything else would be any different.
