My experience working with VIDS workers in Ha noi, Viet Nam

The workers at the Viet Nam Institute for Development Strategy could not have been nicer. It was a joy to go to work each day. Even a first time Global Volunteer who was a native speaker in English would have no trouble doing this job. All you needed was to help them with their pronunciation and a few vocabulary words. There was ample time to experience the history and social life of the city of Hanoi (Hanoi in our language). The hotel was one of the best stays in my numerous Global Volunteers trips.

Return again to Rarotonga

Next February (2017) will be my 11th Global Volunteers trip to the Cook Islands. Usually my main job is to tutor Maori students in English at the same primary school. Not only is it rewarding to see students progress year after year, but the community has taken me in as a contributing member.

Volunteering in China with Global Volunteers

I have been on 7 programs in China(5 of them in Xi'An) with Global Volunteers. They all provided me with a valuable insight on the people of the areas I visited (I still have contacts from these trips).The programs were all expertly organized by the GV organization in Minneapolis the local China Country manager Ms. Wang Baoli. I found the students at the schools I worked at very enthusiastic learners and were a pleasure to work with.

My Vietnam experience

I helped with blind students trying to learn some English for their clients. The students were very appreciative. I also worked in the high school where students were learning English. I think both cases the need for English was evident.

Extraordinary Experience

In every aspect, the India program is exceptional! Living in the guesthouse with the team leaders was equivalent to a home stay...always one of the best ways to learn about another culture. The schools welcomed us with open arms and made our classroom experiences truly meaningful. Spending time at SEAM was a joy. The team leaders treated us like family and went out of their way to meet our needs, to include us in their everyday life, and to do special things for us. Remarkable!
