Experience of a lifetime!

I made the decision that I wanted to volunteer abroad, from London to Cambodia, completely out of my comfort zone and far away from the London office where I have spent the last 10 years of my life. I love working with children, this was not the challenge for me initially, but more so the culture shock that I thought I would experience. I was wrong...the locals that I have spent the last month with, are nothing but lovely people who forever have a smile on their face : ) Teaching children, and watching them grow daily is so rewarding, and the sense of achievement you feel is indescribable. I would recommend anyone to do something like this once in their life - it opens your eyes and you learn so much about yourself which you can use to your advantage moving forward in your career, relationships, personal happiness and so on. Epic experience!

How can this program be improved?
At this stage nothing can be improved - Lily and Avi are fantastic and are in the process of creating an excellent and efficient hub that will excel in the future. GVI should be proud to have such great ambassadors.

I'm already saving to come back

When I was looking around at the millions of volunteering opportunities, I found it really hard to tell the difference between those opportunities where you're just a tourist not really helping, and the projects where I could be of help in a constructive way. Luckily, when I arrived in Cambodia, one of the first things I was taught was what the UN Sustainable Development Goals were, and how GVI has them in mind in everything they do. It was really great to be a part of this project and I'm looking forward to going back next summer once I've saved up!

How can this program be improved?
When I was in Cambodia, the project really was amazing and I don't know what could be made better, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it has developed by the time I go back!

Spectacular programme- life changing opportunity!

I had the privilege of working with GVI recently, and had a truly unforgettable time. I have worked with many local partners, students across the province of Kampong Cham and the dedicated GVI field staff.

The programme is sustainable and puts an emphasis on grassroots development as fundamental to sustainable development. I am proud to say that the opportunity to work with GVI has meaningfully contributed to the long term goals of GVI that are in union with the Sustainable Development Goals. This, to me, was very important when choosing who to work with and I am incredibly happy to say that this opportunity was exactly what I hoped for: meaningful, long-term development.

I would urge anyone who finds impact and long term development of primary importance to volunteer with the GVI Cambodia team.

How can this program be improved?
I can honestly say no improvements can be made.
Yes, I recommend this program
