Testimonials:“My experience of visiting Cuba with Go Eat Give was nothing short of amazing! Every day was a new opportunity to see and learn. Over the course of our stay we toured Havana, experienced local culture, visited the Partagás cigar factory, ate at both state- and family-run restaurants, and learned about Cuban history. Yet, we had “up close and personal” interaction with locals as we did hands-on volunteer activities on an organic farm, at a major park, and one a community art project. All in all, it was a rich and rewarding experience that I would highly recommend.” ~ Walter Akana “The experience for an American to travel to Cuba with Go Eat Give is eye opening. We have a lot of conveniences here that we take for granted, such as buying and selling a house, or buying anything we want at a grocery store. The Cubans don’t quite have the freedom to choose, but I hope they will have a better economic situation soon.” ~ Sadia Walker “I had the most wonderful volunteer experience in Bali through Go Eat Give. Not only were we able to help educate children in the poorest of villages, but also got to experience true Balinese culture. We had the most wonderful food, accommodations, and experiences that will stay with me forever. In addition, lifelong friendships were made. Bali is a country of exquisite people, landscape, and utter beauty. All in all, priceless.” ~ Veena Wulfekuhle “Traveling to Bali with Go Eat Give was an experience of a lifetime. The people, places and experiences I encountered were unlike any travel experience I’ve had before. The activities were well-rounded and allowed you to gain true insight of local life in Bali.” ~ Lindsay Masters “The trip to Kenya was amazing. People were so friendly and the sights were breathtaking from the safari to the coastline scenery. We spent New Year’s in Lamu which is truly a magical place of many cultures blending together peacefully in a beautiful surrounding. We also learned about a number of growing non profit and micro finance initiatives taking place in Kenya. I highly recommend this trip for the adventurous traveller.” ~ Juhee Desai
