"It’s kind of a cliché, but I just gain so much more than I give. Volunteering in this way gives you insight into the culture in a way you could never get as a tourist. You live with the people, you go to their homes and mingle with teachers. You realise you have something in common with the people you’re working with. It really is waging peace through justice worldwide."
Joan McGuinness, 10-time Global Volunteer
