This is the first time I volunteer internationally and it was quite challenging for me.

Overall the journey is good and I found myself really making the right decision.

I broaden my mind and getting know other country culture and living style which is really exciting.

The GVN partners and the homestay are all quite warming and kind. They all ready to help me in any conditions. I miss the time we together there.

The condition of the Romblon is really rural area with few facilities. But I really admire the inhabitants there as they always living happily though some of them are very poor. The environment of Romblon is really nice with natural flora and fauna.

The children at childcare is really cute and sometimes quite naughty as we know it is the natural character of kids. I really miss them and the teacher also very kind and patient to his teaching.

The staff at GVN's partner organization brought me to the new library which was not yet officially open by the time I visited there. It is an awesome project and congratulations for GVN and its partner organization for bringing it to this Romblon!

There is something I need to mention are the facilities of the school and the homestay. The school is really lack of stationaries and other reading materials such as books for daily learning.

The partner organization's homestay is really in bad condition by the time I visit there as there was flood weeks before I visit there. The staff is planning to move to another new place, which is better in location and to avoid flood in future. This is a good idea.

In summary, this is really a great opportunity for me to take part in this programme and I really hope my contribution can bring some good impact to the community!
