In eight weeks we have ticked various subjects in English classes and we have given music lessons (keyboard, ukulele, recorder, dance) and singing lessons. In our point of view the biggest and only difference between people, is the place where you were born in this world. The need for love, attention, health, development and appreciation is just as present as here.
We are happy and grateful that we have been able to contribute to this and would most definitely like to come back again!
I would like to thank Go Pure for the fantastic experience that I have gained! I got to know a beautiful country, the very nice culture and fantastic people (both locals and other volunteers!). It was certainly a successful experience that I will share with others!
Beautiful Bali, someone take me back please ?! By far the most beautiful experience ever. A beautiful culture, so completely different to want I’m used to, so unique. I really miss it now, if I could, I immediately got on the plane and travel back again. “Forever my second home”
I have learned to be more patience, much more that I used to be. And I can let go of things that would influences my self being quit quickly and accept the fact that things are not going how you think the might go. Looking back on the experience I’m amazed by the fact that I was used to the circumstance quit quickly.
My internship in Mauritius was really the time of my life! I had worked for a tour operator and I got the chance to explore the whole island as well. Mauritius is a paradise with a fantastic nature, great culture and incredibly friendly people. And I can wholeheartedly recommend an internship in Mauritus to everyone!
The patiënts could not speak that much English, which is why I started to learn Nepalese at a certain moment. My host family had a Nepali – Dutch dictionary, and they also enjoyed helping me. My colleagues also helped me with certain sentences. It was really appreciated, also by the patients. I really enjoyed it. It was a journey of a lifetime.
It is so nice to see that you do not need much to be happy and that actually a smile from a other person can do a lot with you. These children, but also in general the people in the Siem Reap community, give us the example of what is important in life now. And in particular this has made a huge impression on me.
I learned a lot from this trip. I know now that enough is enough and I do not always have to have obtain it anymore. When I have the chance again, I’d like to go back, to see my new friends and to be able to teach again In Bali, a country a fell in love with.
My internship abroad in Cape Town has not only made a huge contribution to my professional development, but especially to my personal development and the way I look at the world! The beauty of nature, the vibrant city and nightlife and the cheerfulness of its inhabitants contrast sharply with the still prevailing poverty and turbulent history. All in all, with an internship in Cape Town you will learn a lot about South Africa and about yourself and meet many people as locals and other interns!
