The greatest gift that you can give to someone is your time, because when you give your time you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back.

My experience as a Raleigh volunteer from last cycle was amazing, and volunteering is something that I hope to do again in the future.

This is the very first time that all the Volunteers and Team Leaders have come together since we left our villages at the beginning of May, after spending twelve weeks together, sharing moments of happiness, sorrow and learning, like a big family in four different communities of Makwanpur. Having been apart for almost a month, we met with each other again, and shared nostalgic moments, which quickly turned into endless talks and laughter.

Now that the first 12-week cycle has come to an end here in Nepal, the volunteers have taken some time to reflect back on their individual journeys, and think about the things that they have experienced during their time on programme. As well as reflecting on her own experiences, one of the volunteers, Laura, who was based in Nibuwatar on a water, health, and sanitation project, also took some time to ask some of the community members to reflect back on their shared experiences and pass on any messages or words of advice for future volunteers:
