Questions & Answers
DanielAge: 19-24MaleSydney, AustraliaUniversity of SydneyAWESOME ADVENTUROUS EXPERIENCE10/22/2015How could this program be improved?
Its is unrealistic to think one can change the word in a couple weeks. At the same time, It is my onus to make the most out of the time spent here. I think continuing to reiterate that the sharing of experiences from past volunteers is the best way for new volunteers to achieve results.

MariaAge: 19-24FemalePortugalIndia delhi ivhq08/28/2015How could this program be improved?
I was doing childcare and I had some issues that I'm sure other volunteers had, when we try to teach English to the children the teacher doesn't help much because most of them don't know how to speak English so the communication between the volunteers and the teacher can be hard sometimes and since the children also don't speak English teaching can became a nightmare sometimes.Response from IVHQHi Maria, It's great that you stepped out of your comfort zone and had this experience, it sounds like it is one that you will never forget. Thanks for taking the time to review your experience volunteering in India with IVHQ and we hope to have you on another program again in the future.
