Non-Profit Participation Essay

Today I would like to share with you my volunteer experiences. I recently returned from Mexico, where I worked as a teacher in a small local school. I was there not an ordinary employee of the school, but a man who just wants to help, I was a volunteer. It is worth noting that in Mexico, I was through international volunteer projects.

Before to go to the camp, I have long been unemployed, so I decided that this is the right time for me to take part in the project, and finally make a difference in this individualist society that more and more I was choked by. I suddenly felt that I should do it right now.

From my point of view, it was necessary to bring some new ideas in the project, a new approach, not to criticize the existing way of life. I think that I was able to do something useful for the project.

In addition, the first few days at school are always difficult for newly arrived volunteers, as children see a new "European" person each month and they know in advance that within a few weeks they will leave and the new one will come. Plus, the kids were setting me quite cold, because they initially thought I was in some sense the replacement of their beloved volunteer who has worked with them before me. Fortunately, they soon accepted me as him.

I easily adapted to the local conditions of life and way of thinking, which I think is much more humane than the Western mentality. Local culture impressed me with its richness and diversity. However, I was shocked by poverty and bustle of people in the airport of Dakar. Then, I was stunned when I saw the house in which I had to live.

This experience has changed me in human terms. I became a more sensitive to the problems of the poor people, especially children, and try to find an opportunity to help in everyday life to those who need it most.

I think that this project has given me a lot more than I do for those whom I helped, I'm sure. In addition, I discovered new ways of how to help others; this camp changed my way of thinking. I realized that it is important to be able to hear the other person and be ready to lend a helping hand.

I have a feeling that I have experienced many cultural shocks. Contact with Mexico itself - it is a great contrast to our culture, and contact with local indigenous communities – it is an even greater contrast. In addition, the volunteer community itself is very diverse and consists of highly contrasting representatives. This all creates a very rich environment in which sometimes you have to make the most of your abilities to adapt.
