I deeply fell in love with Kundapur and I made it my second home. I have my bus conductor, the workers at my juice shop, the women at the medical store, the friendly couple at the ice cream parlour, our neighbour and more, whom I would greet every daym and have small talk with them. These are some of the people who made my experience here so good, and who made me feel like this is my home.
I can’t imagine a better country for my volunteer service.
About the Projects:
For sure, I will reduce the plastic waste of my previous consumption. Also, I am thinking about joining an organisation to build more awareness about that topic, because we have only this world, and we should take care of it.
About Host Families:
I couldn’t think of a better place to have stayed here.
My host mother treated me like a daughter in the beginning, and tried to share everything what they have with me.
During the year, I saw and felt that I became a real family member with a lovely family around me, and that was by far, the best experience in my whole year.
Had a great experience overall, was hosted with a lot of sympathy.
I gained a lot of patience, I became more open-minded, flexible, calm, and I was able to get many new perspectives. I think this will all help me with my personal development and future life.
I learnt that different cultures give more importance to things that I might not see as important.
Learnt some teaching skills, more discipline, to be more responsible.
Voluntary service is a great opportunity to live in another country and culture. It helped me a lot and increased my understanding. I am very happy to have had have this opportunity.
The ‘international -ness’at at the centre, thus meeting people from all around the world.
FSL will be remembered for always.
