Benefits to the Community

  • You are helping to implement long-term development. Your skills time and energy will leave a mark that will continue to make a difference long after you’re gone.
  • You provide a basic understanding of a unique area that may not otherwise be available. Many of the children and adults in these impoverished communities are not fortunate enough to have wide exposure to different industries. By receiving some exposure to different specialities and receiving even a basic understanding of your specialty, you broaden their horizon and expand their possibilities.
  • You are contributing to the local economy. When you are not on the clock, you are free to take advantage of sightseeing opportunities. When you shop with, or hire, local vendors you support local businesses in the area.
