Hi my name is Tabea Benz,
I’m from Germany I was 20 years old when I was 6 months at Volunt2Thai. I was really glad about combining the project with my physiotherapy skills. I wanted to improve my skills, help and care about people to make their lives less painful or a bit “sunnier”, even it’s just due to a smile or good conversation.
I also think that voluntary service has contribute to my personal development it offers one the opportunity to stand on the own feet. To find my way in a foreign country, to get to know people with other cultures and to learn a new language or to improve my English are very important reasons for me to do a gap. Understanding and tolerance are important values to build good relationships.
You will gain valuable international work experience. In particular, by working with local people in social institutions, you will gain deep insights into the lifestyle of local people while doing an internship in social work abroad.
