    I was lucky to have a great team which was easy and fun to work with Shapang is a village in the mountains about 5 hours away from Guangzhou The bus ride was slightly stressful since the driver was honking every 10 seconds but luckily the beautiful landscape was distracting enough It s like in the movies everything is green as far as you can see and the only colorful spots are the farmers working on the fields Once we arrived we settled in our new home which was the student dorm right by the school We had to clean the place a little bit but after hanging our mosquito nets and unpacking our things it looked cozy It was the first time I had to sleep on a wooden bed but it was a lot more comfortable than I expected The two weeks flew by and before we knew it it was time to say goodbye Almost all the kids came to the bus stop which resulted in lots of tears and hugs one of the most touching moments in my life Life was very simple and pleasant while I was in Shapang We would start class in the morning and at noon when the heat was too extreme we would have a lunch break and nap time Often the students who lived far away would hang out with us even though they didn t like our food since they are better cooks than us In the afternoon we had class again In our free time we always played with the children or walked around the village Even though this daily routine was really repetitive these weeks were the most special and fulfilling I have had It was such a satisfying feeling to see the children transform from shy reserved kids into playful and affectionate ones It was also impressive how quickly they learned Being with them constantly made the children become very attached to us and vice versa We got to share their happy moments but we were also listening to their problems and their dreams which could be quite heartbreaking The two weeks flew by and before we knew it it was time to say goodbye Almost all the kids came to the bus stop which resulted in lots of tears and hugs one of the most touching moments in my life We also had different events where Exchange Particpants got to present their culture to the children as well as a charity bazar in order to raise money and buy presents for the children from Shapang It s incredible how much I benefited from these weeks in China I faced challenges like having to constantly adapt my teaching program to the children s level and needs and compensate for language barriers both with the children and with the other volunteers These are things that I could have only learned by experiencing them I have also become better at managing my time and I improved my pedagogical

    Almost all the kids came to the bus stop which resulted in lots of tears and hugs one of the most touching moments in my life We also had different events where Exchange Particpants got to present their culture to the children as well as a charity bazar in order to raise money and buy presents for the children from Shapang It s incredible how much I benefited from these weeks in China I faced challenges like having to constantly adapt my teaching program to the children s level and needs and compensate for language barriers both with the children and with the other volunteers These are things that I could have only learned by experiencing them I have also become better at managing my time and I improved my pedagogical skills I was also able to get to know a completely different and fascinating culture and see the various lifestyles in the village and in the city And I have made amazing friends The bonds you develop with people you are living and working with every day are really strong most importantly even if all we could have done was to make 40 children as happy as they had ever been it would have been worth it Sometimes people ask me what the use was of us going two weeks to a village and teaching kids for such a short time surely we couldn t have contributed with too much However they are missing the point We gave those children what they described as the best summer of their lives Even though these children are quite poor they don t lack anything Their problem is that they have parents who work very far away so they are alone Most of them live with their grandparents but they can t give appropriate guidance the children need at that age We were able to do this by talking to them about education and other alternatives And most importantly even if all we could have done was to make 40 children as happy as they had ever been it would have been worth it Liked the story Click here or here to read more or visit us on Facebook and learn about your opportunities AIESEC UNIC ARE YOU WHERE YOU SHOULD BE 18 February 2016 0 Comments in Vores aftryk i Danmark by Borsi written by Stinne Friis Vognæs Find den samme artikel på dansk her What I do in AIESEC is exactly the things I have always wanted to do My dad recently asked me why I spend so much time on my volunteer work in AIESEC And that got me thinking Because people often ask me that and they find it really hard to understand that I spend more time on a volunteer job than on my paid job And no that is not really financially sustainable either The reason though is quite simple What I do in AIESEC is exactly the things I have always wanted to do As

    that the United Nations member states will be expected to use to frame their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years What goals are we talking about For example Indonesia swore to improve the quality of education while Malaysia wants to stop the excessive waste of food and Peru is creating projects regarding the climate change and its effects on the locals So no we are not only offering a 6 week vacation If you choose to embark on a journey with us you ll definitely have to get out of your comfort zone You ll feel lost while trying to communicate with the locals or depending on the location get a hotspot on your phone to check Facebook And while you re wondering in a different city gaining some cultural understanding you ll probably start understanding yourself a bit more which is in our opinion the key to Leadership Development The question that remains to be answered now is why volunteer abroad with AIESEC 1 You can travel WITH A PURPOSE get experience working with your passion and raise awareness to an issue you think is important 2 You can volunteer in almost any country we re present in 126 countries the point is that you will make an impact and get a real experience meeting the local culture 3 Since this is a project based programme we are looking for people with ANY skills if you have something to offer to other people we can find the project suited to you 4 The projects happen around the year which means you could start within 2 weeks 5 Did we mention Leadership Development Of course we did but one more time in AIESEC we believe that even after 6 weeks you will become more self aware as you will probably face some culture shock or other challenges and when you can reflect on them then you will get the chance to grow as a person and empower others to do the same Check out our projects Sounds too good to be true Not by large If others could do it why couldn t you Lena and Andreea are two examples from AIESEC Denmark who just like Giancarlo have already taken a step forward to become Global Citizens At the end of the day it is up to you how far you go GLOBAL CITIZEN CHINA ANDREEA 29 February 2016 0 Comments in Experiences Abroad Vores erfaringer by Borsi It was such a satisfying feeling to see the children transform from shy reserved kids into playful and affectionate ones It was also impressive how quickly they learned Being with them constantly made the children become very attached to us and vice versa We got to share their happy moments but we were also listening to their problems and their dreams which could be quite heartbreaking written by Andreea Micula My amazing Volunteering in China began with a week in the city Guangzhou where I met the other Exchange Participants and the Chinese volunteers During this week we finished the activity plans and teaching programs for the following two weeks in the village I was lucky to have a great team which was easy and fun to work with Shapang is a
