Teaching Placement, Cameroon
Cameroon - November 2016

Janet Beloso chose an Independent placement at GTC Ntigi, Cameroon. It was a challenging placement unfortunately made more so by a serious strike across the North West anglophone region which ran on for some months after Janet had to leave the area due to increasing tensions and the inability to teach due to school closures. This is Janet's account in her own words. Click here to find out more

Independent Placement
Nepal - March 2010

"My name is India and so for obvious reasons I have always wanted to go and visit the country. I decided to take a gap year after finishing my A-levels to travel to the country, which is my namesake and to do some volunteering. I know lots of other girls, older than me, who had taken gap years to volunteer abroad, had spent a lot of money on their project, but found it to be a complete waste of time. I didn’t want to do that, and so I spent a very long time searching the web for a legitimate and reliable charity, which took volunteers to India. I decided AidCamps would be perfect."

Michael and Rachel
Cameroon - August 2010

"Imagine yourself sitting on a small stool, outside of a traditional mud built hut, with a thatched roof, empty of anything except a basic bed and your backpack, It's about half seven in the morning, its nicely warm, a blue sky, and you’re in a remote village, living with the people you want to be with. It’s a beautiful place, and a peaceful morning. Two children cautiously approach you and not surprisingly they are a little nervous. They are aged somewhere between three and five. As they approach they hold out their hands and each offers you a mango, which you take and say thank you for. Breakfast is simple, only a little bread dipped in chocolate spread and a cup of tea (we are English!!!), the chunk of bread being the size of your fist. You break it piece by piece and share it between the four of you, until the bread is gone. The children do not say a word, but then give you a huge smile, turn and continue on their way. This happened to us, and it is possibly the one meal we will take with us to the grave. " Click here to find out more
