Volunteer Testimonial
I just recently returned home from our education project in Fiji. I knew that this was going to be an adventure that I would never forget but what I didn't know was how it would change my life. Thank you for the opportunity you've given me. Before I left for Fiji I didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life, now I have a strong sense of direction.   Again thank you for this life changing opportunity. I WILL be involved with GVI for many years to come!
