Teaching in South Africa was the most rewarding and enriching experience ever! GVI staff made me feel totally at ease from the moment I met them at the airport. They provided training and were extremely supportive as I was on my own and a little scared. They were very strict about personal safety, providing GVI transport and excursions with legitimate companies. I went shark cage diving by myself, as GVI signed me up with a great company and a taxi to and from the destination! Watching the children learn and develop is amazing. They are energetic and challenging... in a good way! I had so much fun and cried when I had to leave them! Every time an employer reads about this experience on my CV, they are always more impressed by this than the fact that I have a degree!
