"I would definitely recommend it, the impact you can create in someone's life by rebuilding a house is unbelievable. You will also have time to enjoy the experience with the other volunteers, that become such good friends at the end"

"It was the perfect balance of volunteering at the project site, and still getting to be a tourist in the wonderful city of Lisbon. Getting to work with the other volunteers, meet with locals, and immerse in Portuguese culture was truly invaluable."
