Volunteering with children in Fiji was an incredibly rewarding experience for me. I am currently in school to become a teaching assistant and this experience gave me valuable skills towards this. I was able to help the amazing children in their classes and I learned as much from them as they did from me. The GVI team provided excellent support from the time I first inquired about the program right through to my departure home after 8 weeks of volunteering. The most rewarding aspect for me was the connection that I made with my village family. They were the most amazing and generous people and the Sunday lunch was the highlight every week for me. I will never forget my Na and Ta and seven siblings. The experience was so incredible that I am definitely planning to return!
