Would you recommend Kenosis Foundation?

I came from the UK and volunteered with Kenosis Foundation for 1 month in Bangalore, India. I taught computer and life skills to disadvantaged young adults aged 18-25 years old. This included the basics of hardware, software, typing, Microsoft Office, security, and the internet. I also taught the students how to prepare their CV, and how to perform well in an interview. When I first arrived at the centre, there were some technical issues with three of the computers, but I was able to resolve these within the first day. I enjoyed teaching the students, and they were all keen to learn during my lessons. This made delivering the content enjoyable. My biggest issue that I faced was the language barrier between me and some of the students. This meant I had to remember to speak more slowly and clearly. There was also usually another member of staff available to translate for me when necessary. I also had to learn how to plan and deliver lessons, as this was my first time teaching. Join it

I found the packet very helpful. It prepared me for my stay here. I really enjoyed my placement. Being with the children was wonderful. The experience made a huge impact on my life and I hope I made an impact on them as well. Everything was very nice. I very much enjoyed the meals. They were delicious. The rooms were very comfortable. The highlight for me was working with the children. They were the reasons I came and I will never forget them. I enjoyed sightseeing as well. Experiencing a new culture was so amazing and I learned a lot. I think my friends would enjoy it so I will recommend this to them.
