“This was heart-to-heart service. We connected with all sectors of society – farmers, bee-keepers, maids, students, church-goers, and everyone on the street. What united us was work, laughter, and music. Regardless of governments, people will still connect.”
“My service in Ciego de Avila was one of the most gratifying experiences of my life. The fact that we could spend hours and hours with the same students, practicing English, allowed us to develop deep friendships with the people of Cuba. I was even able to visit one of my students in her home.
I highly recommend this program.”
“I’m humbled by these all-too-brief two weeks in Ciego de Avila. There may be economic hardships here, but there is also much generosity, love, kindness, goodness, and oh yes, unbridled happiness! It has been in the volunteer work that we have really come to know and, to some degree, understand the Cuban soul.”
“What a wonderful experience we had in Cuba. I’m convinced that the only way to really learn about Cuba – the old and the new – is through Global Volunteers. For Shirley and me, it was the trip of a lifetime.”
“I’m amazed at the generosity of the people…and the richness of their souls. It was such a privilege just to be standing among them at a church service – and to work with them every day. The trip made me realize how precious people are.”
“We felt part of the community. The farmers at the organic garden were a delight to work with. Even with the language barrier, we were communicating. One of them approached us in town on Sunday morning with a big smile of recognition. Another brought us fruit for our lunch. Their openness was heart-warming.”
