Volunteers, past and present

Our work and our connections have often been made via ex-peace corp representatives who have moved back to the communities in which they worked as volunteers. This has been very successful, yet our current objective is to work through local organizations, therefore increasing community involvement and sustainability. 
 
We have always been welcomed into the communities we visit.  I  am grateful for the innate kindess of others.
