Internship review

My experience with GVI Cambodia is something I will never forget. The opportunities I had to make an impact to local communities was abundant, and I learnt so much from the people we worked with. The programs are well thought out and varied so you feel like you cover a lot of ground throughout the duration of your stay whilst being able to contribute to development goals in Siem Reap.
The staff are warmth and knowledgeable about the culture and history which made me feel comfortable and at ease when settling into the program. Everyone really feels like family very quickly as you live, work, and play all together. The intern program was mostly self guided, which allowed me to take on my own work and contribute to GVI partners. The support I received from staff and the partners was really appreciated and enhanced the work I could do.
I definitely feel like the program has something for everyone, whether for personal or professional goals, and is a once in a lifetime experience.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Go in with an open mind about what community development looks like and how you can make a difference to the people you work with. Trust yourself and your knowledge, and you will learn so much about yourself.
