LTV team-Kundapura organized Quarter Evaluation for long term volunteers. The program was held for 3 days from 30th November to 2nd December 2015. In total 33 volunteers from different programs like EG, AFS and IJGD took part in this evaluation. The QTE was organized in FSL India training centre. The objective of QTE is to ensure that the volunteers understand about their project, host family and intercultural acceptance through the evaluation and to help participants to prepare themselves for their future actions.
LTV team organized different activities like host family skit presentation, a session about challenges, motivation and open discussion. We also conducted some games like Acid River and some energizers.
Obviously not everything was working time. They also counted on some free time. During their free time volunteers discussed with each other, shared their feelings and got motivation. The second day in the evening volunteers had a one-to-one meeting with their coordinators. All these discussions helped volunteers to strengthen their motivation for their remaining days in India.
We, all LTV staff, consider this evaluation to be a success. Moreover, according to the volunteers’ feedback, it has actually been successful. However successful iit was, it has also been challenging at some point, though everything worked well and we are really satisfied with our work and the results.
