Come Meet Billie in Worcester - 3 February 2019

When I arrived in Cape Town I was so excited to join the GVI team at Gordon’s Bay. Being met at the airport by a warm welcome was a great way to start my time in South Africa. I joined the Sports and Surfing project and was welcomed by the coordinators of the programme, we discussed lesson plans and the routines of the day. Going through the townships to the school was a life-changing experience that will stay with me forever. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the children and teaching them a range of sports using the community field. We played a range of sports but the children really enjoyed soccer and always won the soccer games. The addition of the surfing programme was a really positive reward for the children at the school. They enjoyed going to the beach and being in the water, some of the children said that their favourite thing was surfing. My whole experience has been fantastic I have met some amazing people who I will be friends with for life and had an experience that will stay with me forever.

Join Billie for a coffee and a chat about her time in Cape Town.

Come Meet Kirsty in Glasgow - 3 February 2019

Before heading to Thailand, I had always been so keen on volunteering with animals abroad. I found GVI and did my research into the company and decided this was who I wanted to volunteer with. a looked around the website and decided I wanted to go ahead with the volunteering with Elephants in Thailand program. (Elephants being one of my fav animals!) I got in touch and after a few email exchanges/phone call, I was signed up!

The overall program was fantastic and this has to be the best experience I have ever had. All the staff were lovely, the villagers were so incredibly welcoming and I met friends for life - and the best part, getting to spend so much time with the amazing elephants. I would recommend this GVI program to anyone.

Come and meet Kirsty for a coffee and a chat about her experience in Thailand

Meet Fanny and Lou in Geneva – 9 February 2019

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND

In 2017 Fanny and Lou, both Swiss nationals, chose to explore Laos and join us on a program in the province of Luang Prabang. Here they got involved with teaching English to novice monks and children from the local community, and were left truly inspired so much so that they are now looking to share their stories with you as GVI Ambassadors!

Meet Jonathan in Liverpool – 9 February 2019

Hi, I'm Jonny and I spent my summer volunteering with GVI out in Thailand. My project was all about Elephant conservation and collecting data that goes towards long-term conservation goals. I also took part in the community aspect over there, teaching in the school 2 days a week. My original plan was to only spend 4 weeks but stayed 6 as I loved it so much. The project has changed my life and my goals. The whole experience was amazing and I've made friends from all over the globe. I've already booked to go book because I'm missing the village of Huay Pakoot already and its lovely people. I would definitely recommend this programme to anyone wanting to make a difference, have fun and see new places.
