What alumni have said about volunteering overseas with Tzedek
“It’s a fantastic experience to be pushed out of your comfort zone and into a whole new amazing culture. Most importantly though, it’s the real life application of tikkun olam and pursuing justice."
Lucy Cohen, Ghana 2014
"I contributed what I could as I was teaching street children, but what I received from my trip to Ghana was priceless. I discovered a fascinating country, made wonderful new friends - but most importantly, this trip changed my perspective on the cozy life we live in Europe."
Michael B, Ghana
“My experience [in Ghana] has given me a new interest and insight into global development, showing me issues I had never taken an interest in before, but am now keen to know more about.”
Adam Prais, Ghana 2014
“It was an amazing experience. I was quite anxious at first, as it was such a different country to anywhere I had been before. The programme gave me an a experience of the country and I got an appreciation for a new culture and the life of those less fortunate.”
Sarah Yiannaki, Calcutta
