Meet The Volunteers- Ingrid Van Thiel

Where are you from?

I live in Holland but I am British.

What project did you sign up for?

I signed up for the 6 weeks Kruger to coast  project and chose childcare as my voluntary work

What do you do for a living?

I am just finishing my gap year but I worked at a wedding venue for 7 months.

What does volunteering mean to you?

Bringing a smile on people’s faces to those that are less fortunate, working side to side with others and connecting with others to work towards a goal, being able to give your own time and attention for the benefit of others, showing you care and wanting to make a difference and also I wanted to explore and experience a culture/country that I didn’t know much about.

Reason for choosing All Out Africa?

I signed up for Kruger to Coast via a Dutch agency, so I didn’t actually know I would be working with All Out Africa. I found out when I arrived in Swaziland. I now will definitely recommend All Out Africa!

Your experience as a volunteer, did it had any positive impact on your life?

It had a huge impact on my life. I appreciate the things I have in life so much more than I did before coming on this trip. My experience as a volunteer allowed me to connect with new people and learn new skills. This trip will be a memory that I will cherish forever.
