I was allocated to work as a volunteer nurse at a small medical clinic called Kibera Human Development Project Clinic. The medical clinic is situated in one of the most deprived areas of Nairobi. I started working there 22 Nov/15 and i will complete 8 weeks working there.

I was received very professionally by an honest local representative of Kenya Global Crossroads, named Barnabas. He introduced me to the Doctor in charge and the staff of the Clinic.

I was honoured to work with Dr Stanley who is a wonderful caring, honest, dedicated and knowledgeable man. I admire him for his courage in undertaking this challenging work in a slum area of Nairobi.

I have learned a lot from him through observation and consultations.

I thank Global Crossroads who connected me to this volunteer opportunity.

Regards

I’m Kelly and I’m a volunteer from China. I choose to come here because I like to stay with children and make friends with others and I really look forward to experience different culture. I’ve been here for 2 weeks and I love Banda Aceh and our center very much. Aceh center is very lovely with 2 warm-hearted directors. On week days, we have storytelling class, Mandarin class, Italian class and music class aimed at different ages and levels of students. I teach kids who are under 10 years old Mandarin and they are active and focused, which makes me delighted and feel that everything rewards. Every time I teach, I feel a sense of achievement and I’m really happy to see kids like to have Mandarin classes. At free time, we make flashcards, gardening and even make a trash bin. And at day off, directors and local volunteers take us to a nearby beach and coffee shop for relax. Banda Aceh is very beautiful and people here are very friendly. I think it’s a very precious chance to be here teaching lovely kids, making friends with other volunteers and experience local culture.

I recently went to Tanzania on Global Crossroads program and had a woderful experiance. I arrived directly to Kilimanjaro and was taken to Moshi Hostel. It was clean and comfortable and also the hostel cooks cooked us a good meal. The project coordinator was kind and helpful and took me to the project and I went to to see a firewood factory that made firefood from saw dust.

I also gpt a chance to go on a safari and visited Lake Manyara , Ngorongoro , Serengeti and Tarangire. Serengeti was impressive in numbers of wildlife and its size. Ngorongoro had the best quality wildlife viewing out of the four parks. .

The UK side of the company really let them down with little communication which sometimes was completly inaccurate. In some other peoples cases the company forgot to mention that a public holiday would take place during their project meaning they lost a week of placement - very poor. The project was described as being interactive and with the ability to visit many departments - this was not the case.
In terms of the actual project in India the staff (Babu) were fantastic and really made sure everyone was looked after (the food was nutritionally very poor e.g. mash and veg or supernoodles) and the house DOES NOT have air conditioning as advertised - b.t.w. air conditioning in India means a fan.
The project was quite disorganised and I spent a lot of time waiting around only to find that I could not be in that department for the day. A lot of the time the doctors did not ask for me level of understanding beforehand and assumed I was pre university - which I am not.
