Voluntary Service

 We provide volunteers an opportunity to gain a genuine, first-hand understanding of how local people in other cultures and countries carry on with their day-to-day lives and, in the process, to present local people with a more authentic impression of who the volunteers really are. Our aim is to enable volunteers to experience life in a rural community. They learn from the local people with whom they work and they become familiar with the human and economic conditions of developing communities. As a result, each volunteer has an opportunity to dramatically alter his or her perspective of the world and how he or she relates to it. By working with and learning from each other, both local people and volunteers can initiate intercultural friendships and understandings.
