    Does it necessarily have to be a french speaking country? I know a great programme that runs in Uganda in october thats with a brilliant safe charity! also what age are you as many charities don't take people under 20?

    No it doesn't have to be a french speaking country that would just be a plus :) im 18, but eveywhere i've been looking doesn't seem to take people under that age so i'm okay ! Is there a website to the program you did ?
