I decided to volunteer abroad because I wanted to get an insight in how an NGO project actually works, how the projects are laid out/constructed and where the money goes. I saw EHN advertised on Omprakash whilst I was travelling in India and planning to go to Nepal to visit friends so I sent them my details, explained what I was interested in doing and filled out the formal application. They were very friendly and informative and I knew that I would get the best possible help whilst working with them as they were very responsive and flexible to my time schedule and the things I wanted to experience whilst there.
Also, as it was a relatively new organisation, I was the first person on this specific school on the teaching project and this meant that they really regarded my feedback on the school, standards and elements of the project. It was nice to contribute to shaping the project and putting forward my ideas whilst working with the new staff and therefore the element of creativity is something I enjoyed also.
