My experience with IVHQ New Delhi, India has been a very memorable and incredible experience thanks to the hospitality of my host family Mohit and Chandni who provide a very clean, comfortable and welcoming home. I stayed with them for 3 weeks out of my 4 weeks in India. They are helpful with anything from weekend travel tips to where to do some shopping locally or in other cities,etc. I felt very at home and I am so grateful that i was placed in the best house in IVHQ India! They were there for me 24/7 with support and they interact with all the volunteers who come through the house.
My experience at the projects was very interesting everyday. We planned lessons to teach the children and we got the freedom of creativity to teach them different insightful lessons. I am so happy I had chosen the Slum Teaching program. It has been such a fun and rewarding last 3 weeks. I felt very comfortable with the children and the staff at school. It was within walking distance from my homestay and I loved being able to walk there and be able to walk the streets which are safe.
I came across many IVHQ staff members during my month here. They all were friendly and hospitable. I did orientation week and I am so glad that I did! It made it easy for me to get around and see the sights of Delhi without having to navigate myself, so I would highly recommend that.
I had done research with other volunteer companies and I'm sure every one would agree with me that, IVHQ provides the most affordable fees. Once i got into the country on day one they explain where the fees go and how they benefit the people within the company, locally and abroad. I feel that my time here was well spent and its definitely something that i will always recommend other people to do.
