India summer programme - over 50's

If you have never been to India, however always wanted to this is a great experience. From walking out of the arrivals hall in Delhi, being greeted by a friendly face is truly a wonderful way to begin. our accommodation in Delhi was in an apartment within a gated community, walking distance from shops, restaurants and bars. Briefings were thorough at every step of the experience and our questions and concerns answered and actioned.
The school in Delhi gave a real insight into how a large portion of the population live. We were made to feel very welcome and both children and teachers seemed so grateful for our involvement.
Due to the age range of between 4-15 were had been advised prior to arrival, that activities both fun and educational be our focus. Indeed we arrived armed with quantities of items for the children - colouring books, pens and pencils and clothing.Our second week in a different location at the foot of the Himalayas had us refurbishing two classrooms with the opportunity to engage and play with the children during break times.
Our final week was effectively touring the Golden Triangle.
There is a lot to take in both from a cultural and physical aspect however I would urge anyone thinking about India to take the leap and go. Incidentally this was my 10th visit to India and already planning another.
India is a country of contrasts whith areas of poverty you cannot imagine, however you will be welcomed with wide, warm smiles together with often life changing experiences.
Whilst as westerners, we may look at their situation and feel sorrow, its best to remember these wonderful people, in the main, have nothing else to compare life to - they are happy.
Loved working with the kids

The website is good. The Pre Departure Information is useful. The service staff was helpful and my questions were answered immediately. I lived with a family and enjoyed that a lot. I was satisfied with the meals. The local coordinator was an experienced and friendly person. During the introductory seminar, we got a lot of useful information about Cambodia.
We also learned some Khmer and me used simple words in the Khmer language like greetings, thanks, and numbers every day. Teaching basic language skills is a good idea. The local coordinator took us to the Killing Fields, where we got a lot of information about the events in the late 70's in Cambodia. He also took us to the War Tribunal and we all appreciated being part of historical moments.
What an amazing experience

The Pre-Departure Information Booklet was very complete. The general service of the staff regarding the answers to my questions was very good and helpful.
I enjoyed working on the project and placement where I had the possibility to work. My experience was very good, I would repeat it if I have the possibility to do it. The coordinator was very helpful, I would surely recommend Volunteering Solutions to others.

I volunteered at the Day Care Center in Cusco, Peru, for 2 weeks and it was an amazing experience. The program was very well organized, the staff was very good, and they made me feel very safe. I had a lot of fun being a part of this program. It was great working with the kids. I also opted for a hiking in the Rainbow Mountains. I would recommend this program to all because it is very well organized and the program is not very expensive.
Do it all over again!!! Amazing!

experience has shown me how goodness exists in the human being. exciting work with children even in a short period of time. I will never forget the face of each one of them. in addition the program took all my doubts and showed me the India that I always dreamed to meet! Would go back a thousand times! and I point out to everyone who wants to join the passion of traveling with the will to help.
