An IVHQ review from volunteer Phoebe
Phoebe Winter
Nationality: Australian
Age: 19
Program: India - Dharamsala
Date: November - 3 weeks

Thank you for all your support, encouragement and security, but most of all thank you for providing me with the opportunity to be bewildered by India, while sharing my knowledge and time to those less fortunate. The monks in Dharamsala, and community in Bir, India, have been such an enriching addition to my life. I can't even explain the amount of kindness they bring into this world. Throughout my journey of India, I was able to see, experience and do things with the IVHQ program and coordinators whom treated me like family. I have never met people so passionate about their jobs, and feel so honoured to have worked with the staff in Dharamsala. Any issue or question I had, they solved within the hour. Any sickness, allergy, sadness or problem within their house, was treated as their own families problem. Because of your high standard program, I am recommending it to every single person who asks about my trip to India. I'm proud to say that I was able to travel India with IVHQ and am already looking at a new program to apply for. I'm just so fulfilled with what I gave to those monks in Bir, and what they taught me, and the moments we shared with each other, that is something I don't have to preach about, it's something that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
