"When I entered the project I had a lot of expectations, and almost none of them were met as the way I thought they would be, it was much better! This was my first trip to a foreign country ever and my first volunteer project and I think it was a really good life experience. I am already looking for something more to volunteer to, and I know it’s because my experience here was as good as it was."

"I have spent two weeks here in Phang Nga and they have been some of the best weeks of my life; my time here has been really inspirational and life changing.

There have been many many highlights on this trip. To name a few, the Thai culture and people: the Thai culture is so different when compared to what I am used to at home, the people are so friendly and welcoming. For example, we visited a care centre during our trip and before we had even said hello the kids came running and smiling and laughing. Also, the locals around Ban Nam Khem, the place I was staying at, were so friendly, you just met them with a simple “sawatdee-krap” (hello) and they would instantly smile back and do the same.

The other thing about this GVI trip was the staff involved; they were extremely accommodating and very friendly, definitely some of the nicest staff members I have ever met.

The reason I booked this project was I wanted to experience a new culture and help the community at the same time; GVI has more than fulfilled my expectations. I have learnt about Thai language and culture from GVI staff members and have also lived in a real Thai village and helped at a local Thai school, which I can successfully say had given me more than enough experience.

Overall I would definitely recommend a trip like this to anyone interested; as I have said before, it has been a great experience and I have met some great people who I will hopefully stay in contact with through years to come."

"Life on base was something that worried me before I arrived. Sharing a bedroom with 11 others, living out of a backpack and no hot water? How was I going to cope? I can honestly say that life on base is great. Everyone works hard to keep the camp clean and tidy and it really does feel like home. It’s nice to get back from a hard day at school and just chill out with everyone and share stories. I have made friends from all over the world and have never laughed so much in my life."

"I worked with GVI as a volunteer every summer from 2006 to 2012 and had the opportunity to take part in most inspiring projects where GVI is promoting community development and sustainable livelihoods. Although GVI has been involved in different projects in different continents, all of them were designed to be holistic and focus on people’s needs and resources. This integrated conception of development caught my attention from the beginning, and has taught me that education sits at the center of all efforts to enhance the resilience of fragile communities all over the world."
