Meet Billie-Jo in Worcester - 5 May 2018

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. The kids 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.’

Meet Samuel in Edinburgh – 18 May 2018

‘I travelled to Phang Nga in Thailand with GVI in summer 2017. Before I arrived, I had no idea what to expect. I did not know what I would be doing, where I would be doing it or who I would be doing it with. However, upon arrival at Phuket airport, it quickly became clear to me that I was about to embark on the experience of a lifetime. In short, the GVI under 18s experience in Thailand is a unique and incredible chance to experience some of the best sights Thailand has to offer, as well as providing people with the opportunity to truly benefit the local communities and wildlife.’

Meet Susie in Leeds – 2 June 2018

‘I absolutely loved my own GVI experience and I would love to help give others the same opportunity to have their own. I chose to do the GVI Mexico community long-term internship in the summer of 2015 as it seemed like a great opportunity to get relevant work experience.’ Come and meet Susie to hear more about her GVI experience!

Meet Rebecca in London – 6 June 2018
