I have learned a lot about Indian culture during my time here. I am more aware of cultural differences and I have become exposed to the world of development. I have learned to work with everyone on our team to accomplish our volunteering/development goals. Our enrichment activities helped me learn about Kerala & India outside of Fort Kochi. I have learned that I am very goal orientated and hard working. I would definitely recommend GVI to someone looking to volunteer abroad because I had a great tIme and enjoyed our projects.
