I have always wanted to volunteer, and I know so many people are in the same position as me, and if any of you have any questions please ask on this post and I will reply!
We stayed on the school grounds, in a dorm with a little campbed and a fan. When I arrived at the site I knew it would be pretty basic, but it's obviously still clean and everyone did their bit to help out! We got food everyday (which was abslutely amazing - especially for the vegetarian option!) and I taught 2-3 classes a day!
I had a class called 'Cheetahs' who were beginners of areound 10-13 year olds who were quite a small class but always knew how to have fun, and a class called the 'Cool Bananas' who were an all girls class (and one boy who joined my class a few days into my teaching!) who were elementary level and were the loveliest people in the whole world, ages 14-21!
Planning lessons, living on site and getting to know other volunteers - it was honestly a whirlwind. And something I will never ever forget. The kids there don't live in the best conditions, but always came to school with a smile on their face and always knew how to put a smile on mine!
Thank you so much to Hope Agency. for everything you guys did for me, and if any of you are considering it please do it - you will never forget it. And Hope Agency in Bakod village are amazing!
