This trip has been a life-changing experience. In terms of my leadership session, I thought this was extremely helpful in developing my leadership skills. I would recommend GVI because I think they do a great job of focusing on work, but also remembering that understanding the culture is important.

I’ve learned more than I ever imagined I would. I most definitely would recommend GVI because the organisation of projects, accommodation and resources were exceptional.
Genevieve George, AFS
Being in Nepal not only enriched my global perspective, it helped me appreciate home even more. If anyone is looking to make a difference while making a life long (and life changing) memories, they should definitely sign up to come to Pokhara through GVI or AFS.
Eric Martin, AFS
I’m glad I was able to go to Nepal and join up with GVI’s incredible staff. They made the trip go through without a hitch and on every survey they gave me, I rated the staff a 10. The thing I loved the most though, was how understanding they were.
Elissa, Wellspring Learning Community
This trip has been enlightening getting to know how the new environment around me works and getting to know the culture and religion was a way that helped me in understanding Nepal. This experience allowed me to challenge myself by going on a trek and face my fear of heights by crossing the bridge twice.
Mohamed, Wellspring Learning Community
I enjoyed the Nepalese people themselves and how polite they are. I feel so privileged to have such an experience, from the trek to helping out young kids at the school.
Amal, Wellspring Learning Community
I now realise that a lot of people are really in need but we don’t realise that because we don’t see that or talk about them. I have definitely developed new skills and I have learned a lot about myself and my personality. This trip was life changing for me and I would definitely go through this experience over again.
I thoroughly recommend GVI to anyone; whether you are an educator looking to take a group away, or an individual looking for a career break or some volunteering experience, GVI will cater for you.
