The best things I had done in my life

GRC offers me this opportunity to volunteer on a range of different projects focused on grassroots community development and conservation initiatives around the world. I have always wanted to volunteer abroad and when I was given the opportunity to participate in a unique volunteer program .Promoting interactions between people from different countries allowed everyone to see that art is more than entertainment and that it has the ability to bring people together to raise awareness on important topics, like rural sustainable tourism, human development and environment. While on project as a group we were able to achieve more that we never met.
I am very appreciated that GRC give me this good experience to be a volunteer in china.

Its a best experience for my life to be a volunteer.

With the help of GRC I become a volunteer in China .This unique program pairs volunteers up with a host-family in China giving us the opportunity to know more about history、customer and culture of china.

Meeting amazing people who became like family to me, getting to know and love the children I worked with, exploring a beautiful country and culture: all of this is just the beginning of what my experience.

I think this is a perfect opportunity to get out and help a group of people who have been through so much, and to live in a very different environment. I have a much greater understanding of different persons, and an appreciation of how life lived simply can be just as exciting. Anyone who has spent time doing a volunteer will know the excitement that comes when he visits china. Here I feel very thankful that GRC give me this chance.

Enriching experience

I had a very nice time and it was a very enriching experience. Everything was nice and clean. We were in contact with local students and people but I found the interactions limited (e.g. The homestay was a little too short). I would therefore recommend this program to anyone looking for a first time humanitarian experience (it was my case), as well as anyone who fears culture shock and is unwilling to confront it too much for a first experience.
GAC gave me a package with absolutely everything I needed in it (metro card, sim card, map of Beijing etc.). I was impressed by how well all this was done.
The hotel facilities were good, almost too good for a volunteering experience. To be honest, I was expecting much worse. I my opinion, the hotel was so comfortable that I did not feel like I was volunteering. I almost felt like I never left my comfortable home in the west, and it’s a shame. I enjoyed the stay with a local family a lot more. The facilities were nice but we were also in contact with local people, therefore more what I was looking for.
Although I would have liked a more concrete project, I enjoyed the freedom we had in choosing our activities (what dates, what times we wanted to go, how we were going to do things without anyone dictating it for us).
GAC always had stuff planned for us, and we were never bored. At the same time, we were given a lot of freedom to decide what we wanted to do. I think this is perfect.
GAC coordinators showed that they were at our service at all times, ready to help. Every time we needed something in Beijing, they found it for us. They were also great during visits. I, as a foreigner who did not know Beijing, never felt lost or confused; thanks to GAC I always ended up finding exactly what I needed. I personally believe they did a great job!

Amazing children

I have been a volunteer in Beijing for three months and I have enjoyed every minute of it. At first, the kids seemed too naughty and sometimes even unbearable, but the more I got to know them, the more I realized how amazing they were. The children lived at the orphanage and we spent most of the day with them, we studied, play and together, so you get to know them really well. Go Abroad China is doing some amazing work in helping these children and it is a privilege to work with them.
