The learning trip changed my life drastically. I ended the trip with so much love and hope in my heart.
The learning trip has given me the opportunity to meet some of the strongest people I have ever met. Their stories are full hope and resilience.
I love how much the learning trip immersed me into the local culture. I found myself loving the local food that I didn’t think I would ever like or even try. I found myself wanting to experience everything. I even tried carrying a water jug on my head!
Overall, the learning trip gives a once in a lifetime opportunity. You will be grateful that you had the chance to experience it. I am grateful.
