My host family was amazing they always made me feel like I was a part of their family. I had my own room and my privacy was always respected. My host mom cooked delicious meals and made sure my clothes were washed. We always had a great talk and laugh especially in the evening! I was also able to practice speaking Spanish with her, which was fun. My host father was very respectful and sweet! I never felt uncomfortable in their home.
My country coordinator was very professional. She made sure my accommodation, placement and project was always smooth and in order. Whenever I faced any problem she was always there to help me.
Volunteering at Coffee Farm was one of the many highlights of my month long trip. My responsibilities included maintaining trails, Planting trees, cleaning streams, Fundraising and finding grants, assisting with the office work. I enjoyed every bit of the program. Wish I had more time to work on the farm. Sometime in the near future, I plan to return to Costa Rica and visit all these wonderful people again.
PURA VIDA!

Thank you for this great opportunity!!

How can this program be improved?
The volunteer Programme on farm could be improved with more structure during the day so that the volunteer are aware of goals and aims of the project.

I lived in the small city Weinan, an hour away from Xi’an city. There I lived in a school with kids that also were living there. Every morning a teacher of a school (kindergarten) in or close to the city (small villages in the countryside) would pick me up and bring me to the school. I would teach all the classes in the school English. In the afternoon I would rest and at 14:00 a new teacher would come. I went to more than 10 different schools so I really saw a lot of China: both the city and countryside. That was what I liked most of the experience. In the weekend I could stay at the volunteer house in Xi’an and explore the city. The volunteer house has a very nice Chinese family. Overall, I had an absolutely fantastic experience in China!

Communication pre-arrival was great. Hom was so helpful and answered all my questions perfectly and made me feel at ease every time. On the first week I did the language program. Pratima the teacher made the class fun. She was very good. The hostel in Kathmandu was nice with good food and family kind of feeling. 2nd week was rafting, and national park- It was amazing. I started my project on the third week. My project was based in Rampur, Chitwan. I volunteered at the orphanage (Asna) and also at the school. The orphanage runs very well. The school was bit different than what I had imagined. You will have great fun but you will need to be prepared, patience and willing to work hard. Both students and teachers know very little English. This makes the work more challenging. Language course proved to be very useful while communicating with the staff and the students. Staying with host family is a must! I also was fortunate enough to witness a Nepalese Marriage Ceremony! During my day off Pratima took me off for Sightseeing and Trekking. The overall experience was great, I will be back again. I love Nepal.

How can this program be improved?
The school needs help in getting computer facilities. Computer literate volunteers would be more helpful for this school. I would also recommend taking books, pens, pencils, etc. they need a lot of help.

I had a fantastic experience in Nepal with RCDP. The language program in the first week was very useful and provides me with some basic Nepali. Which I used a lot! Volunteering at the health post was very interesting and I learned a lot about the Nepali daily life by living with the host family. I specially loved the festival! Overall I am very happy with my experience and will treasure it for the rest of my life.
