I meet with a girl from Afghanistan twice per week for ESL lessons via Skype. She has an incredible passion for education, more than anything I have ever seen in my own country. I feel like I have learned just as much about her culture and country as she has learned from me. This is something I feel very lucky to have experienced, because although I have traveled a lot in the past and am familiar with a lot of cultures, this is a culture which is hard to learn about. I will treasure my volunteer experience here for the rest of my life. And as far as the organization itself, the North American-based coordinators have been helpful from day one. They are very available for questions, and for any technology-related issues that arise, and they also give good suggestions for teaching via Skype.
