Meet your Team Leader: Andy!!!

Hey guys, I’m your team leader Andy! I’m from England and I have been working for Reach Out for almost 6 months now as a recruiter in North America. Last year I spent 6 months working on our Island scuba diving project and another 5 months traveling around Asia. I’m loving my time in Africa…



Last day on the worksite!! WHAT!?!

Time has just FLOWN BY! I cannot believe we are already on the last day of the program here in Mozambique! Today was an incredible day. It started off a little slow and dismal, with a bout of rain coming down on us just as we began our second coat of cement on the exterior…



Donation giving day!

Whats up ya’ll! Today we hustled hard, mixing heaps of cement to plaster the walls and fill in all the cracks and holes. We spent many hours caked in cement, slapping it onto the walls, whilst jamming out to good tunes on the bluetooth speaker. Tomorrow we have another coat of cement to do, so…



Teamleader down!

Hey Ya’ll! Sorry for the day late post! Yesterday started out with another dolphin swim with Ponta Du Ouros resident dolphins. I hear they saw quite a few of them out there! After the morning swim, everyone headed to the worksite again. The crew had a productive day, finishing putting the reeds on the house,…



We’re screwed!

…As in, we used many screws today, hahaahaha. Today was a bitttt of a slow start after such an amazing long weekend here in Ponta Du Ouro. We had our full group of 20 volunteers working on the dormitories. A few got to take a trip to the local hardware store to pick up materials,…



Beach day!

We got to swim up close and personal with two of the resident dolphins here in Ponta Du Ouro. After that incredible experience, we…



Speed demons!!!

Today we got a much needed break day. We slept in till 9AM!! WOOOHOO~~~!! We all then hopped on some ATV’s and went for a ride around town, stopping at a few different local restaurants along the way. Each of us got the chance to drive the quad, we had such a blast! After lunch,…



DOLFINCKEY

 So today we awoke at six am, bright eyed and bushy tailed, for our first dolphin dive experience in Mozambique! Once we arrived at Dolphin Encounters we were fitted for our flippers, given a debriefing on safety and technique, and told how to interact with the dolphins. We then drove down to the beach, pushed…



It’s all comin up roses!

Work Work Work Work Work, thats what we did all day long! We split the group in two today since there were less jobs, and fewer tools available. One group spent the morning checking out the markets and enjoying the beach, while the other group mixed heaps of cement to build up two rows of…
