Mozambique: 2 in 1!

June 29th: Last day in Ponto De Oro. We are so sad to be leaving! We had a free day today and we all spent it doing things that we loved to do in this town. We went exploring along the beach, we got pastries from the bakery, we bartered for goods at the market…



Just one big happy ROV family!!

  Hey all, as this wonderful program is slowly coming to end we’ve lifted our shovels flexed our biceps and got stuff done!! Unfortunately the weather gods weren’t on our side yesterday but in saying that it meant we could have a team stay inside and keep dry and prepare for our party at the…



Mozambique: Dolphin day part two!

We woke up early to sunny skies and a whole lot of sunscreen (preparation is important). We saw so many!!!!!! Fun fact: dolphins are so cool. The water was also warm so it made the whole experience that much better. We finished both work sites today!!!! We finished painting the clinic and making the walls…



One hundred and eighty eight

Wowza, what a day! Today we again split the group into two. At the new crèche, we had volunteers continue plastering the walls, begin with cementing the floor, repainting tires that surround the children’s sandpit and worked on the new jungle gym. At the old crèche, volunteers held education classes, plastered the walls and broke…



Mozambique: Gooooooaaaaaallllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!

☀️day funday!

Hi, so today was sunday funday which meant the games begun! After a very minor sleep in (7:30) we had some of the volunteers go to a game park to do horse back riding. Here they got to get up far closer than we had in the past because the animals aren’t as scared because…



Mozambique: Happy As A Clam

  Guys…we swam with dolphins! Like actually, truly snorkeled with dolphins! It was so cool we boated out to a reef with our snorkel gear and they were RIGHT. THERE. Unfortunately, only one group got to see the dolphins; the other group was not so lucky. Everyone still had a wonderful time though, and we…
