Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)

I went on the Children of Africa 3 week trip in Ghana! There is so much to say! GLA gave me an opportunity I never thought I could have at this young of an age. I was able to make a difference in peoples lives, at the age of 16! Like anyone would be, I was nervous at first! I mean who wouldn't be, but as soon as i stepped foot into Ghana i was overcome with excitement! Me and the other students on my flight were welcomed right away at the gate by mentors from GLA! Throughout the first few days we were introduced to all our fellow students and our mentors we would be living with for the next 3 weeks! Then things really got started! I started brick making! And teaching! and going on excursions! it was beyond amazing! I fell in love with it all! The people who i lived with, that the first day i called strangers, I now called family. Everyday i got to meet new people, try new things, and learn new amazing things! Because of this trip, I am a better person, I try new things, and i view things with a different, more positive eye. I would not trade this trip for anything and because of this trip it made me realize i want to volunteer in my future more.

Global Leadership Adventures (GLA)

Last summer I went on GLA's Galapagos 2-week summer program. It was an amazing life-changing experience! During our time on the islands, we worked together to clear invasive species off areas of the islands so the endemic plant and animal species can reclaim their lost land. Through this trip I have learned the importance of environmental conservation and many different ways I can make an impact on the world. I highly recommend this program to any student looking to better the environment and themselves through challenging yet rewarding and fun community service work. This was truly a trip of a lifetime!

Global Crossroad

This is Rehani from United Kingdom. I joined a Volunteer programme through Global Crossroad in Sri Lanka in a orphanage at Galle. The programme was based on creating games and activities to children from 9 months to 6 years. It has been an emotional and important experience, in particular lloking at the smiles of the children when I used to arrive in the morning in order to be ready to play with them.
During the programme, I stayed at Michael's house near the orphanage. The family had been very friendly and helpful during my stay. They provided me with meals based on local cuisine, very tasty!They,also, suggested us the places to visit during our free time and planned a trip to Yala National Park and Mirissa for a week end.
I really suggest this experience in Sri Lanka!
