"Volunteers should come to ECC because they give us knowledge about their countries, we can know their lifestyle , food , etc. Volunteers help us with our work. We feel very happy and excited when they come and spend time with us. They teaches new things about their social life. So, we wish them to come in here and teach us new things . Even though they can’t spend more time with us a part of their busy life but I want them to spend some time with us so that we can co-operate with them and be frank to them and let us know each others." - Elisha Gurung
"We wish many volunteers come to our house and spend their time with us. We can learn many things from them like about their lifestyle, language, culture and teaching style of their country and many other things about their country. We enjoy with them by doing different activities.
When we enjoy with them time passes very fast that we cannot notice it. We can learn their country games which are not able to find in our country. We will be very happy and excited if they come to ECC . Sometimes they teach us their language , song and dance. So we are student and in the process of learning if they will come then we can learn more new things from them and develop our mind . so we wish them to come." - Rashmi Basnet
"ECC is the home for every needy children. So it is our house and every volunteers are always welcome in this house. We believe that guests are as a god so to volunteers we may not be able to pray them as a god but I am sure that we can give very nice respect and good hospitality to them.
We always wished to have volunteers in our organization. If volunteers would come in ECC then we get different kinds of entertainment and external knowledge. We all get change to know about their cultural, geography and life style of the people of their country. Not only information but we also get chance to learn different kinds of games, which are not known by us. While sitting with them we feel so enjoyable and we even don’t feel how the time flies by. It also gives a nice refreshment to our mind. We can make good friendship and good relation with them also. Due to volunteers our organization is getting a lot of support due to which ECC is still standing, to take a children to a bright future. So we are always thankful to volunteers who has come here and spent most time with us and shared a lot of love. So we always heartily welcome every volunteers everytime." - Bhumi Raj Magar
In oktober 2014 heb ik 3 weken door Tanzania gereisd waarvan een week lesgegeven op de school in Mwanza. Ik wilde niet alleen toerist zijn, maar ook een beetje meer zien en doen, al blijft dat natuurlijk relatief. De week les begon op maandag en ik was benieuwd wat me te wachten stond. Verwachtingen waren al een beetje geschept doordat ik contact had gehad met een voorganger die een paar jaar eerder via ActLocal ook lesgegeven had bij Perfectus college. Nieuwsgierig en afwachtend werd ik door een klein groepje studenten ontvangen bij aankomst op de school. De coordinatrice van het gezeldschap begeleidde me al snel naar een kamertje waar een kopje mierzoete thee op me te wachten stond. Tijd voor mijn eerste les; en daar stond ik dan in een klaslokaaltje in Mwanza met een groepje afwachtende op een stoelzittenschuivende studenten en 5 computers waarvan de helft het niet deed, maar dat maakte niet uit want stroom was er die dag toch niet.
