Krystle Cummings Volunteer in Lusaka, Zambia | "#Volunteer Abroad Information: Volunteering, Airlines, Countries, Pictures, Cultures" | Scoop.it

My ABV experience in Lusaka is something I'll always remember. I had the opportunity to work at projects that I truly believe in, while making a difference to those that need it most. I wish I had planned for a longer stay, as I already miss my Zambian family and the friends that I made. It was the people that I met which really made my experience such a memorable one. My experience also really made me rethink my life in Canada and be very appreciate for all the things I have. Volunteering abroad is an incredibly rewarding and eye-opening experience, I'd recommend it to anyone.

My ABV director in Lusaka was very supportive and always able to answer my questions. I worked alongside my director almost everyday at the office. Whenever I was having troubles understanding a project all I had to do was ask and my director would talk it out with me until I had full understanding and was able to go on my own. My director was also personally supportive and checked to make sure I was comfortable at the house and offered to pick me things up at the store whenever I needed, or cook meals differently if they got a bit too traditional Zambian for me. I never felt stranded or really in need of anything.

Don't be afraid to get out and explore on the weekend! I was told by my family that I was one of the more adventurous volunteers they had as I was always taking the bus to visit various places and sight-see around the city. Take some time before you leave to do some tourism research and find some fun things to do on the weekend. I felt incredibly safe the entire time and the people that I met really made a positive difference to my entire trip and overall experience. After my volunteering I also traveled to Livingstone, Zambia for 10 days on my own to more sightseeing before going back to Canada. As far as packing goes, check the weather and pack for all working conditions. Don't stress too much about forgetting things because there are so many shopping centers that you can find pretty much anything you need once you're there.
