VESA Africa Unearthed trip

a trip by MaRen
From: May 2nd 2019
Until: May 17th 2019

I find that through volunteering you really get to experience and appreciate the culture you are visiting. VESA is an organization involved with humanitarian and conservation projects throughout the world. A member of their organization came to the University I was studying at to explain about their great work. Along with my sister, we decided to volunteer on their Africa Unearth trip. On the African Unearth trip we learned about wildlife conservation efforts involving African cats and crocodiles, helped build houses for members of the community and volunteered at the local school and daycare.
