An honour and a privilege

One of the schools where GVI volunteers teach has honoured us with a special presentation.

To acknowledge the work done by all of the volunteers who have worked there, Xayadeth College presented us with a Certificate of Appreciation and also presented Tricia with a personal certificate to thank her for all the effort she has put in over the last 2 years in establishing GVI as such an important, respected and valued part of the College.

Following the certificate presentations a game of petanque was organised and the newly arrived volunteers were introduced to this enormously popular game. As we played tables were laden with food and drink and we were all treated to a meal of Laos food and typical Laos hospitality. It was an ideal introduction for the new volunteers, who had only arrived the day before.
