With no previous experience in engineering the volunteer co-ordinators were amazing and patient in teaching me. Never had such a hands on experience in my life, I now feel more rounded and confident in approaching a more scientific field in Read More

Stavros Eleftheriou : Cyprus – Electrical Engineering at Imperial College London

“I always wanted to do something special in my life, something I would be proud talking about. I was just stuck in my daily routine and things were getting boring. Then everything suddenly changed when I heard about WindAid. Volunteering, Travelling and a lifetime experience in rural Peru…So, one crazy morning I jumped on a plane, traveled for 16 hours and found myself in South America with a bunch of people from all around the world! I know that a lot of people are concerned about the money fee. I wouldn’t think about it as spending money but as an investment for your future. I didn’t and I will never regret it! Do you know why? I was working in a team consisting of people from all around the world with diverse backgrounds. This helped me develop my interpersonal skills and I also learnt the value of diversity, strong communication, mutual respect, shared planning, cooperation and working towards common goals. Furthermore, the challenges I faced building the wind turbines gave me the opportunity to expand my engineering skills and gain confidence which will help me tackle any future work situations. The most important thing for me is that I made new and strong friendships with the people in my team. I went out with them, sang with them, danced with them, had marshmallows next to a bonfire at the beach with them, got exhausted working with them in the workshop. True friendships arise from mutual experiences and challenges you have gone through with some people. The best and most rewarding part was that as a team we provided something we all take for granted to people less fortunate. Now all these memories are still circulating in my mind and I am looking forward to see this whole WindAid experience grow more and more so people will be part of providing help to more and more people in need!”
