Rachel Rawcliffe (from the United Kingdom) took time out of her teaching career to join us in Madagascar. She joined in several of our projects and, like all of our previous volunteers, is sad to be leaving.
“This programme offered forest conservation, marine conservation and teaching so was ideal. I also had the opportunity to spend 10 days living on a boat travelling around islands and the mainland. The boat trip was amazing, even though it rained a lot, we went to a lemur island, saw a giant tortoise and visited remote villages. I was most nervous about going into the forest, however, I loved seeing the lemurs, chameleons, geckos and snakes!
On weekends, we have spent time exploring Nosy Be and Ampang, a local village. The staff have been brilliant, helping out with any issues there have been.
The other volunteers have been great and I know I will visit some them over the next few years! I am gutted to be leaving soon and will miss the gorgeous views and sunshine!”
At least there will be enough happy memories to last through many a cold, wet day back home.
