    I couldn’t have chosen a better organization to volunteer with! Each day I came home with a smile on my face knowing that HOOP has made a difference.

  • Chris Kondas, USA

    I’ve volunteered with several organizations in Latin America. With all honesty HOOP has been the most organized and has given me the most satisfaction.

  • Marcjanna Mazurkiewicz, Poland

    My biggest regret is that I didn’t come for longer. HOOP surely made this the best summer of my life!
