Volunteer val who has already volunteered with us in nepal has just returned from Saint Lucia working at Lady Gordon Opportunity Centre – here are some of the many many photos she has!

But first Val says ”

“Would I recommend Volunteering?

Absolutely!   The experience is unforgettable from the total immersion in the local life, meeting many different and interesting people at the school, in the town, shops, markets etc, to under- standing and learning so much about another culture whilst supporting and helping out in the placement.


I have also formed long-standing friendships as a result of volunteering and the travelling that this involves becomes much more meaningful and enjoyable. It can be a very tiring experience but uplifting and fulfilling.  I always return home with no regrets and lots of very special memories.”

    and this just in from the project” Her kind nature and patience in dealing with the students, her willingness to share
    ideas and teaching experience with the staff as well as not being overwhelming
    with a know it all attitude.Honestly Ms. Kemp became known to us quickly as Ms. Valarie and was liked and is
    missed at the school. She fitted in well!
