Ananya therapy centre November 2017

On coming to India I was most worried about the unknown. Having never travelled to India before I didn't know what to expect in terms of of the culture and the work. I soon realised that there was nothing to worry about. All the staff were very receptive and friendly. We had lots of support from Madhavi, founder of Anaya therapy centre, who I am looking forward to having an ongoing relationship with. I enjoyed seeing even the small changes at Ananya and showing staff that learning language is fun.

Anna from Skilled Impact eased my mind before heading out and was very helpful in answering lots of questions, and skyped with us before leaving.

Without a doubt the trip was a worthwhile experience if just to meet Madhavi who is a very inspirational lady. She taught me that no matter what obstacles are in your way, if you want to achieve something then anything is possible. I am now going home much more confident having learnt that I am able to adapt quickly to different working environments. Whilst my time in India may have had its challenges, you will find it a very rewarding experience that you will not regret. Whatever your concerns, embrace this opportunity.

Speech Therapy placement in India

Skilled Impact are a fantastic organisation. It was so reassuring to have their support throughout my volunteering journey to India. Their recommendations and reliability ensured that I felt so well looked after from start to finish. And what an experience it was! There is still so much to do in terms of training staff in India on the best methods to develop speech, language and communication skills in children; and I feel so privileged to have been a part of this training programme in one specialist children’s centre. The staff and parents were so responsive to the training; it was such a rewarding placement. Thank you Skilled Impact!
