Testimonial from Karoline Risan, Teaching internship Cape Town January 2013

The staff is around at all times while you’re on project and they can answer your questions and support you. I felt safe and they helped me develop. I don’t regret my decision, choosing GVI for one second, and I would do it again.

I have wanted to work and travel for a long time and I have always wanted to do it alone. GVI can provide you with a lot of information while you decide where you want to travel and what you want to do. You can travel for a short period or a long one, and I would definitely recommend the long one. If you want to work with children you need a certain time to get to know them and we all want to make a change in their lives. I choose the six months internship because I wanted to get to know the children and I was also tempted by how you get more responsibility as an intern. Perhaps you can be the one to develop the program, or come up with a great idea. Not only can you make a change, you can also develop as a person and create amazing memories. With GVI you pay in advance and you don’t have to worry about finding a roof over your head, getting food on your table or calling a cab to drive you to work. The staff is around at all times while you’re on project and they can answer your questions and support you. I never felt unsafe at our home or at the location we were working at. I felt safe and they helped me develop. I don’t regret my decision, choosing GVI one second, and I would do it again
