Reach out. The world is our family.
Run each semester, this initiative (Global Village) sends students overseas to disadvantaged communities to lend a helping hand in a local project. From building houses to teaching at local schools, it’s a great way to immerse yourself in a culture, have fun, make friends for life, and sight see.
There are better ways to find yourself than by watching Eat, Pray, Love. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience that will be a space for personal, social and mental growth.
So what is Global Village?
Global Village is an Arc Volunteering Program that offers UNSW students the opportunity to volunteer in developing countries during uni breaks. In the last five years, Global Village volunteers have helped out in countries including India, Vanuatu, Sri Lanka, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, Fiji, and more. Our work is dynamic and diverse, but the shared purpose is to improve the circumstances of local communities by building upon existing capacities and learning from local knowledge. 2017 promises to be another fantastic year with some amazing trips planned in communities we continue to support.
