Hi I’m Beca and I live in Cardiff, South Wales. Having decided to do some voluntary work over the summer, I prioritised charities that were involved in sustainable projects, worked in partnerships and had a good reputation. I found GVI via an internet search and having read other testimonials and reviews decided on to enrol myself on a two week programme in Nepal. Having never been to a developing country, I will never forget my first day on project. We were to spend a week in a small, poorly funded primary school that had been severely damaged by the earthquake. Our given task was to make noticeboards and paint classrooms. Seeing the children play in what I would call a building site was truly humbling and I shall never forget the excitement on their faces when the digger arrived! These children had so little yet were so happy and made me appreciate what I had taken for granted. Joining GVI in their mission to make a difference is truly an experience of a lifetime. I have met some amazing, interesting people who I hope to stay in touch with, experienced Asia for the first time and even learnt to make the famous nepalese speciality ‘Momo’s’. I strongly feel that if an opportunity presents itself for anyone else to visit a developing country they should take it and definately consider GVI to facilitate the adventure!

I only signed up to the GVI Nepal project around 6 weeks before I actually went out. I had never intended to do any travelling or volunteer work after I left school as I planned to go straight to University. However, things often do not go to plan and I decided to head out to Nepal with GVI. Having just completed my tour volunteering I can safely say that the whole experience was one of the best and most rewarding things that I have ever done. The whole experience was incredible. The city of Pokhara (where GVI is based in Nepal) is a beautiful city built round a lake and is teaming with lovely coffee houses, bars and restaurants. Life was not also just confined to project and the weekends were often filled with different outings. This include a three day trek in the Himalayas. Finally, all the staff on the trip were incredible. They made you feel extremely welcome and were there if any issues arose.

I was immediately treated with unbelievable hospitality from the local people. Being the age that I am, most of the village is my age which helped me make friends with them and feel apart of the village. All were welcoming to help me learn more about the culture as well as answer any of my questions. I taught at a local Mosque for an hour before school, then went to the local government school to teach for 2 hours. The afternoons were free to relax and work on lesson plans before an after-school program with local students.
