"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."

"It is tremendous to see how excited the kids are to see us every time that we are at the school. I have learnt a lot about teaching English for the past week and how to manage a Thai classroom. This has been my first teaching experience, other than tutoring, in which I have a lot to learn about techniques and skills to use. I have learnt and improved on nonverbal commands and cues, since most of the students know very little English."

"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 an orphanage 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."

"This trip was amazing, better fun than I ever imagined. The friends I’ve made, not only with other volunteers, but with the staff members, has really been a highlight of my trip. This trip has allowed me to experience the potential long-lasting adventures through GVI.

To me this trip, as well as having a holiday , has allowed me to gain another perspective on how to do things and the importance of the smallest actions. From GVI and the communities in Phang Nga and Koh Kho Khao inviting us into their homes and places of work, I genuinely feel appreciated.

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The visits to the orphanage and other places were incredible!!! WOOO!"
