Hello! im Molly, a 19 year old English and Psychology student, I've recently joined SLV Global's amazing and unique project to volunteer worldwide in psychiatric and development facilities for those less fortunate than you and i.
This programme will provide me with essential skills and knowledge of the field of work I intend to enter in the future, and at the same time I am able to give back to a community that needs it. As a psychology and English student I can not only further my knowledge of developmental psychology, I can also pass on key English skills and further the art of communication worldwide.
The first few days in Sri Lanka are all about training me to be at my most effective level to give care where it is needed for individuals with learning disabilities. Alongside this, as it is a level one placement, I will be involved in Global mental health workshops which will give the most valuable experience to a Psychology student like me entering such a competitive profession.
During this time I will be living with a Sri Lankan family to really get the feel of the place. Sri Lanka, also known as the 'pearl of the Indian Ocean', is gorgeous yet still paradoxical to its appearance, is recovering from the turbulence of a civil war and needs psychiatric aid more than ever.
Together with your help to cover costs such as travel and the placement itself (as you know being a student isn't the most financially stable position) we can reduce the stigma and bolster current resources!!
Improving self esteem and well being in individuals who need it most.
Thank you in advance and thanks for reading, help spread the word and stop the stigma!!!
