Global Vision International  We’re sending our Social Media Manager out into the field. Follow his story for our 20 Year Anniversary.

My journey is almost at an end, and I’ve loved every single moment! From diving and watching data collection on the Mesoamerican Reef, to helping kittens recover from surgery, to meeting people that I will remember forever. I don’t want to go home! But I know that when I do, I’m leaving with a deeper understanding of myself and the world. - @garret_brent .

The next part of my journey has been a fly-by visit to all of our community development bases in Playa Del Carmen. For education, we work with @savethechildren in early childhood education and development; Contando Con Un Amigo, a school in a local village where we help with teaching. It has been very different from the marine conservation I was involved in before, and while I will always be a conservation lover at heart, it has been wonderful and heartwarming to see the excellent work we are involved in and deep community connections we have formed here in Playa Del Carmen. - @garret_brent .

Yesterday was my last day at our marine conservation base in Akumal, and now my journey has taken me to our community development base in Playa Del Carmen. I’ve learnt a lot from the people I met in Akumal. My latest blog is up on GVI’s Facebook if you would like to hear about it. - @garret_brent

This was from my first dive in Akumal on a reef monitoring site called La Buoya. I was buddies with GVI Dive Instructor @edisonsands. On my ascent, looking down at the expanse of the reef below me, I was overcome with amazement and got quite emotional. It was at that moment that I finally felt like I had arrived and that I was a part of something bigger than myself. - @garret_brent

My journey so far - it’s been a week into my adventure to Mexico with GVI. These are the highlights of my trip. I’ll be posting another vlog to GVI’s Facebook soon, discussing what I’ve learnt, what I’m going through, and how I’ve grown - @garret_brent

I’m Garret, GVI’s Social Media Manager, and my journey on my GVI program starts now. I’m going on this program to our bases in Mexico to learn and show what it is like for a GVI participant. I want to highlight the journey from start to finish, and showcase the impact the company I work for has - both in local ecosystems and on the personal and professional growth of participants. I believe in my company because we, our participants and our community partners are making remarkable things happen on the ground.
This isn’t a big news story about what’s wrong with the world. This is one tiny story about what’s being done to make a difference.
Follow my journey.

Physical Education doesn’t just provide an opportunity for the students to get out of the classroom, it also increases concentration inside the classroom 🏃🏾‍♀️🔜📚 #gvitravel #volunteer #gvicapetown #gvisouthafrica #runforfun #physicaleducation
