MBL volunteers’ activities:

Fye’s  volunteering experience with MBL in Nanjing, China (3rd – 15th July 2013)

MBL volunteer Fye (from Cheltenham Ladies’ College) went to China for her two weeks volunteering experience with MBL in Nanjing in July 2013.

From the 3rd of July until the 15th of July I participated in the MBL volunteering program in Nanjing. This experience was so enriching in that I was able to immerse myself with the true Chinese culture and society. I improved my Chinese language day by day and got to know so many friendly people along the way. My host family gave me great support right from the moment I first met them to when I left Nanjing. I’m so glad to have had this opportunity and so happy that such a wonderful organization like MBL has allowed me to take part on this meaningful experience.
