Well developed!

This project is very well developed and I was impressed all of the things that were provided and promoted aside from the time working with young people - cooking classes, cultural orientation, side trips, cultural performance, etc.

I feel like I've found something very special with the GVI Sports Projects so I would like to go over to Kenya with a year or two and create some new experiences over there.

Great!

The most positive and most enjoyable experience while volunteering in sports initiatives in India with Global Vision International (GVI) was the relationship built between all the volunteer and their class.

Really enjoyed it!

Coaching football at Don Bosco youth home, and at Auxilium were the highlights of my project experience. Really enjoyed the responsibility of leading sessions, and learning day by day on how to improve them. Everyone was very welcoming wherever I went, especially at Don Bosco, Auxilium and Thamaraparambu. Loved the living with everyone at base! Really great to get to know everyone, volunteers and staff alike and very much felt like a second family. Location is really nice in Fort Kochi. Side trips were unforgettable experiences for me. I didn't really think about side trips before I arrived, all were planned quite last minute, but all three of my trips were spectacular.

The staff are mixed

the staff are mixed, Grace in particular has been fantastic, she has helped me through everything i have done and been a pleasure to work with. certain other staff i feel have a constant ultimatum to GVI, so normal conversation is difficult to do when you feel GVI is always in the back of there minds. The actual structure at times can also be challenging as projects can be very much not what you are told they will be and not well planned when you arrive and teachers at the school, don't know who and what classes you will take.

Recommended

It would have been better if they allowed contact with the people on the ground during preparation time.

We will recommend that the trip happen again next year although there are changes to the itinerary that probably need to happen based on feedback.
