Social Work and Counselling Work Experience in Knysna, South Africa
         

My experience at FAMSA was more than I ever could have imagined and/or asked for. I was able to put in practice the other aspects of social work that is community-based. Here in the States, it is much more difficult to do community-based work, and seeing how these needs can be met.

I was able to gain knowledge while at FAMSA. I was learning how everything is tied together throughout the community; whether it was attending counselling or staff meetings, or going out into the community.

I do believe that my experience at FAMSA will help me in my future career. I have a better understanding as a social worker from a community-based aspect.

I am grateful that I was able to experience and work with such wonderful people that were able to help expose me to other parts of social work that I was unfamiliar with...

...I couldn't have asked for better in regards to all the manager/staff employers. Everyone there was so incredibly helpful from beginning to the end. I feel very fortunate and lucky to have met these incredible people.

The past two months that I spent in Knysna, South Africa has been the most amazing experience of my life. I feel privileged that I was able to experience this incredible opportunity.

I just graduated with my master of social work and I've always wanted to do volunteer aboard. I feel lucky to have had my placement at FAMSA, and feel they had more of an impact on me than I had on them.

The things I've experienced and the things that I saw while I've been here will live within my memory and my forever!

I can't wait to come back to SA in a couple of years!
