Volunteering in Madagascar with Azafady was the ultimate combination of very hard work with great feelings of reward and a bit of travel and relaxation in one of the most beautiful places on earth. The organisation made it possible for us volunteers to feel safe in a new environment, whilst also letting us explore on our own. Azafady has a great team, both internationals and locals, that are helpful and kind, who are there to see to your well being, as well as to teach volunteers about the culture and language. One of the best parts was our integration into various communities, to really allow interaction with the local people, furthering our understanding and appreciation of their way of life. Being a small organisation, it is easy to see how each individual project affects the community it is geared towards, and the results remain once each group of Pioneers leave. I made friends quickly with other volunteers and the Azafady staff and construction team, so the hard work was fun. There were some opportunities to see the flora and fauna in different areas, and even a couple of amazing ‘vacation days’ on a beach in St. Luce. Azafady offered everything to someone looking to work hard, learn lots and have lots of fun abroad!
