Camila Rojas recently stayed with us for two months on Nosy Komba and has chosen to share how much her volunteer experience in Madagascar meant to her.
“When I decided that I wanted to volunteer on a faraway island, I never thought that it would have such a big impact in my life. Madagascar will always be close to my heart because it taught me so much about myself, about other cultures and, most importantly, it taught me how little I really need to be happy.
I was on Nosy Komba for two months in the Marine Conservation program and I can say that it was the best decision of my life. My day consisted of diving, learning about the ocean, and being around people I love and will never forget. I will always regret not staying longer because saying goodbye to this little piece of paradise and to all the people I met was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
To anyone who is looking for a volunteering experience, I extremely recommend MRCI, whether it’s the teaching, forest, or marine program, you will have the time of your life, and stay as long as you can, because time flies in paradise”.
