"Doctor! Teacher! Pilot!", they all answered when Dominique asked her students what they wanted to be when they grew up.

Dominique, who worked at a small school in the fishing village of Senya, talked to her students about their rights and the importance of staying in school.

Fantastic job, Dominique!

Catia is from Portugal and currently lives in New Zealand. She volunteered for 5 weeks at the caregiving project in Cambodia.

Today was her last day at the kindergarten, and the children decided to thank Catia for everything with a little party!

"For me the most rewarding thing was being able to teach all type of students and feeling that they were engaged and seeing improvements on their English was the best thing. I was able to teach in three levels of English, from children to the advanced level that was mainly composed by university students. Being able to know locals was incredible good, because you not only teach them but you also are able to see how the society works and how people with similar ages than you live in a total different culture. Martinha Cardoso, Católica Lisbon School of Business & Economics, #UBELONGVietnam

"In Ghana I was involved in a teaching project. I did many science experiments at school and I also taught the teachers about how to do them. I think the students enjoyed my lessons. More than one month after I had left I received a text from the science teacher thanking me again and saying that they were still doing science experiments at school with all the things I had left them. I learned a lot from Ghanaian people and I’m glad to know that I could actually help them." --Michele Raggio, University of Rome Tor Vergata, #UBELONGGhana

"I chose to volunteer with UBELONG, because I felt that the organization cares about its relationships with projects and volunteers. UBELONG cares about their local partners and by working in a custom based matter, projects are specifically chosen based on the need of the particular environment. Projects are granted the best volunteers, and volunteers are placed in welcoming and inspiring settings to work in as well." --Karen Macatumbas, UOttawa, #UBELONGCostaRica

"One day, some of the boys from the orphanage were tugging on my hair and one of my earrings must have fallen out. One of the boys was crafting earrings in order to make some extra money, and I used to make jewelry in high-school, so I taught him a few things, and, suddenly, he noticed that my earring was missing and asked what happened. The next week I saw him, and he pointed at a single earring on his platter. He had made me a new earring to replace my old one, physically molding it behind my ear to look like the other stud earrings I had! It was a seemingly small act, but, knowing the little materials he had and the little time as well, it was one that touched me an obscene amount. Moments like those are the reasons I did this program." --Morgan Fitzgerald, University of Michigan, #UBELONGPeru

"My biggest challenge has been facing to the suffering of patients in very poor and low hygienic conditions. In Cambodian public hospitals there are very small rooms for many patients, they are treated for small operations without use of local anaesthesia and they sometimes have their bed on the floor for lack of space. What impressed me the most is the strength with which the patients face the most painful situations without complain." Idina Zavatta, Università di Bologna - Campus di Forlì, #UBELONGCambodia
