My trip to Africa was by far one of the best life experiences I have had yet. My experience with Global Crossroad was wonderful. The week spent going to the orphanage for street children was remarkable and eye opening. The relationships that were created with people on this trip I will cherish for a very long time.

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Global Crossroad. I had a life changing experience volunteering at an orphanage for teenage mothers and their babies. My Spanish improved greatly with the offered Spanish lessons. The country coordinators were also very nice and helpful.

I am so thankful for this program! I had a great time volunteering at a hospital with abandoned children. I helped with physical therapy with the hopes that these children will walk some day. Alyssa and Roger were great coordinators and helped answer all of my questions. I had a great experience with my host family, and the mother treated me like one of her own. I would recommend Global Crossroad to anyone.

When I asked for information about the programs, the information that was given was quite different than what the program actually was. Some information given was quite unclear, and I guess there was some misunderstanding and miscommunication.

When I was put through to my program coordinator in Nepal, he was very happy to help with all the problems and change my project to what I wanted. Once I got to Nepal, the worries all went away, everyone was very happy to help and very supportive. I had an amazing time at my project teaching English at monastery in Kathmandu. The people I have met have all been so wonderful and with the biggest hearts. I stayed with a host family, (DT and Anju) which made the experience so much more interesting. The monastery itself was amazing, and the monks so so sweet and wonderful. It was so much fun every day to go and see them and teach them. You really have a lot of freedom to teach whatever you want, I incorporated lots of art to my teaching. I had lots of free time to explore Kathmandu and the valley around, which I am very happy about. There is so much to see and do here. I am very sad to leave Nepal, it has been the most humbling, eye opening and wonderful experience. Thank you to everyone who has opened their hearts to me. <3 Nepal truly is a very beautiful place.

At the end of my volunteer project, I ended my time here with a week long trek to Ghorepani, Poon Hill for 5 days. Although it was monsoon season, we got very lucky with the weather, and got to see the most spectacular view of the Annapurnas. The trek itself is not very hard, very do-able. It was amazing- would recommend Three Sisters Trekking Company for all women guides- was a wonderful experience, very empowering.

My experience at the orphanage with the children is one of an emotional and heart-warming adventure. I shared a lot of good memories, affection, and love with the kids.
Furthermore, I got attached very quickly to the kids, and their ignorance, beauty, and kindness are extremely inspiring. I had the chance to discover the environment and to see the wild animals. I also went to some environmental conservation, which was very pleasant, and learning about the culture was really amazing. I had the best two weeks of my life here in Galle, Sri Lanka. Mickael is an amazing person, and his family's members are as kind as himself. They were willing to help me whenever I needed. Plus, Mickael's wife is a good cook. I will never forget them. :)
