“Our international volunteer experiences and Students Based Projects offer all students the opportunity to explore their dreams of traveling abroad, get exposed to traditional working conditions that are different and help them develop real/strong student life, skills, social exposure and attributes to become globally employable as employers always demand to hire a graduate who have had an international experience and bringing a global outlook to their work...”

"I had heard about NMH School Based Volunteering through a university advertisement, the prospect of doing something different and fulfilling for summer was exciting for me, so I applied. All of my expectations for a memorable summer were met and more. There were many projects to get involved with but my main placement was teaching at a local school. I found this extremely rewarding and also challenging since I was in charge of a class of 20 children 5 days a week. However, this allowed me to really get involved with their education and form some lifelong bonds with the children. One of the uncertainties for me before leaving was the other volunteers: were there going to be any others, and if so, would I get along with them? These worries were dashed instantly when I met everyone. I made friendships with a large number of other volunteers from all over the world; some which I fully intend to meet again. The NMH Projects staffs were very helpful and able to answer any questions that I had regarding my placement or Ghanaian differences. I would highly recommend volunteering through NMH Projects.” –Nathan Liwis–
"Although I had little experience, I was lucky and surprised at what I was able to assist with. I helped to castrate pigs and vaccinate dogs!" –Louise Markson–PROGRAMS
