International volunteers experience

Incredible India! A country of big contrasts. Very rich people, who have everything (begining with power and status in society and finishing with expensive clothes, jewelers, cars..). On the other side there are very poor people who have nothing. They have to work hard every day for receiving food and money for their families... 

There are a lot of volunteers  who take care of underprivileged people. It is a big system of different organizations from all over the whole world. They provide a lot of things, which are needed by this people. One of them – Scead foundation usually helps children in government schools. This organization provides books, stationeries, blankets and other useful things. And now I am a part of this system...]

I was working in Government Tamil and Kannada Primary School. All the equipment for classrooms, sports, library, books etc. are provided by the Principal and the teachers who are really hard working to realize all that. The children are very active. They even cannot sit quit for a long time. Everything is very interesting for them, even my laptop. There are full of energy like small batteries).

I taught them one kind of ballrooms dance – valts. This dance was strange for them, because of in India according to native tradition woman and man cannot dance together, like pair They do this separate. But it was quite good. After every single class children came to me and asked: “Teacher, one more, please!” or “Tomorrow, tomorrow will u come teacher?”. We had a lot of fun. I was very happy to see the bright light in their eyes. Everyone can feel this, you just have to open your heart.

Hi! My name is Olena Iakubiak. I arrived in India for the first time and I have many impressions about the country and about my internship because India a country of contrasts. I had an internship at the school for children with low income families. I taught them to paint, play chess, to try to be a rugby player.

This incredible an experience for me to communicate with these kids! They are all sincere, pleasant, interesting, capable, they have incredible potential to learn. Each child is special. I was going through their emotions with them. I really like this!
This is one of the most intensive stages of gaining experience. Internships can immerse themselves in new cultures and get to know themselves, develop personal qualities
