My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Cross-Cultural Solutions, New Rochelle, NY, USA
I volunteered in Dharamshala, India for 2 weeks on a Global Health Project. It was a very different and pleasant experience as far as placement, staff, food, and cultural exposure was concerned. I went to 2 other Global Brigade trips before this but the experience which I gained through this organization was very unique. Not only because of the experience of working with children as opposed to adults or varied ages of patients but also because of the experience that I was able to get while examining those kids and spending time with them after the examination was done. The food is great and the staff is ever ready to help. I knew the local language so that helped me a lot in multiple ways however, the local staff is very cooperative so language barrier would not be an issue for the volunteers who do not speak the local language.
