What was your favorite memory of this trip? Meeting and spending time with all the other volunteers at the camp.

What was the most difficult thing you experienced? Adjusting to the schedule that we had at camp and the work that we needed to do.

What was the one thing you wished you were better prepared for? Traveling to the camp by bus and having to get to the river by myself.

How would you describe/rate your experience working with the ABV staff in the USA? The staff were very helpful and were able to answer all the many questions that I had.

How was the local ABV Director and the support provided in-country? He was very helpful and informative.

Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial): This was the best experience of my life. The ABV team was really helpful both in the USA and in-country. I was very prepared for the trip. It was really easy to get settled and used to the new surroundings. There was never a time that I felt uncomfortable or unclear on travel instructions or anything. Definitely going to go back some day!
