Reviews & Testimonials

"I taught English 3 times a week to drop out students, helping them to get back in to government schools in a small rural village in Bangladesh. It is a great way to experience a different culture, whilst gaining important skills that will not only help you in the future, but they also look great on your CV!" - Ciara Rooney
