Machu Picchu, place to be
Julia
8/10

I´m Julia, 20 years old and I work in Cusco for eight weeks. The most time of a day I spend in a catholic school, where I help the english teachers in class. I work there with children between six and seventeen. So it never get´s boring. In the afternoon, when I´m not too tired, I also work in the orphanage, which is only separated by a door to the school. There I am with the children and take care of them, while the mothers, for example, do their homework. After work, I´m free to discover the city or do what I want. At the weekend I also have enough time to get to know the country.
In the family I live in, are two other volunteers and we´re spending much time together. It is like a family and after work, I feel like coming home. When I have some questions, I can ask anybody and I have always been helped.
Let´s see, what the next five weeks will bring.

I enjoyed the program very much, and the staff here has been very accommodating and helpful. Additionally, I learned a lot about the Argentinean health system and functions. Spanish lessons were great. The hospital was a bit difficult in the beginning because we could not understand a lot. I improved a lot over the 4 weeks of my stay. I really loved the host mom. She was so sweet and kind! Everything was greatly arranged and if you had any problems you could always talk to the members from Global Crossroad. They are doing a wonderful job

How can this program be improved?
While I am aware that observation is a large part of the experience, I do hope that mixing it with more hands on experience would make this program even better.

Me and my friend went to Nepal with the intention of Volunteering in A Medical Program and Exploring the culture. I must say both of our intention was well met through Global Crossroad Program. We really enjoyed our stay in Nepal. We had a teacher to teach us Nepalese Language and Culture. This was very helpful. The hospital was a bit difficult in the beginning because we could not understand a lot. We improved a lot over the 4 weeks of our stay. We feel very fortunate to have learned about the health care system in Nepal and all about the culture. We really loved our host mom. She was so sweet and an Amazing Cook!

Everything was arranged well and you could always talk to the members from Global Crossroad. They are doing a wonderful job!

How can this program be improved?
This program should have more medical equipment and resources. If so I believe we would have been able to reach more individuals in need. I would also say that proper arrangements made though Global Crossroad for volunteers to reach and help out the people in the most needing communities of Nepal would be great not only for the communities but also for the volunteers.

It was a real experience to say the least. I enjoyed volunteering in India a lot. I participated in the Teaching English program. My responsibility was teaching English to grade 4 - 8 students. The students were lovely and eager to learn. The principal and some of the teachers were very nice.

The host family was great. Rajan’s house was very nice and the food was very good. Getting a chance to visit Delhi, Jaipur and Taj Mahal during my visit was also great.

Highly recommended trip!!!

How can this program be improved?
Proper ambient and awareness will definitely make this program even better.

This past summer (2018) our son and nephew volunteered through the Global Cross Roads program in Peru. From the beginning we knew this would be great. Mr. Mohan spent a long time explaining to us how this would work and how the kids would be taken care of. After registration there was follow up and we were connected with Mr. Roger, the local lead for the program in Peru. And Roger, one word: FABULOUS. We couldn't have had a great experience if not from him. He handled it all for the kids, pick up at the airport, juggle things when the flight got cancelled, take them to the host family and what a gracious host. Roger showed up early next day in morning to explain to the kids their activities how to get from one point to other in Cusco, checked with the kids at lunch etc. etc. He is an example of selfless service who continues to give to the Cusco community and inspires others to do so. He made arrangements for the weekend trip to Machu Picchu and even for that made sure even was safe and taken care of.

The program itself was great and the kids learnt a lot about another country, to take care of themselves and more importantly to take care of others. Thanks for providing the opportunity.
