Two weeks in Mexico volunteering; an experience that would be so unknown to me and yet one that I can honestly say has been the best thing I’ve ever done. There has been lots of highs throughout my time here with GVI and some lows, like today as I’m sitting here wondering why on earth I did not plan to do this longer?! My time with GVI volunteering has been amazing and something I will not forget.
Throughout my time here I have visited a variety of different schools and organisations, such as Escuelita which is a school for kids and adults with disabilities where we help out with the therapy sessions, texture activities, colouring and painting activities and we would all sit down and have lunch together! On Saturdays we would have some of the kids from esculelita Come to the swimming pool and we would do aqua therapy which was one of my favourites! It was amazing to see how different the kids were at the pool compared to at school and seeing how they would improve each time they practiced the activities which we were helping them with. It is such an amazing thing to be a part of!
