GVI has been the best thing I’ve ever done. I achieved more with 4 weeks on a GVI project than I did in 6 months backpacking. The experience was so rewarding, and has given me motivation and drive like I’ve never had before. My confidence has grown and I have more experience working with others, experiencing different cultures and working in a creative and rewarding environment. I could not recommend GVI more. I never imagined last year I would be teaching abroad but with the training and support from GVI staff I entered the classroom feeling confident and prepared and can’t wait to do another project! I feel very lucky to have spent so much time getting to know the people of Laos and Luang Prabang, a truly enchanting and magical place, and feel very proud and lucky to have been able to do a project there and help local people and the wider scope of work of GVI.
