Singapore International Volunteers
Stanley Goh in India
Stanley Goh, a 30-year-old lecturer from Republic Polytechnic, started his unique adventure in Bangalore, India in February 2008 as part of his Singapore Volunteers Overseas (SVO) term, organised by the Singapore International Foundation.
Serving as a coordinator at the Indus International School (IIS) for 10 months, Stanley helped design and implement an integrated curriculum for the school which includes a vocational training programme for students from the nearby villages.
From him, the village students pick up a smattering of English, life skills and IT know-how — all necessities to help them land a better job in the city.
