"The culture immersion with the Maasai peoples; all the daily activities that were done were very eye-opening and humbling." – Yutaka Nadohmi, past trip participant

"My biggest takeaway is just a general reflection on the copious amount of privilege I have, and how much I should be happy and not complain about living the way I do." – Chase Williams, past trip participant

"My biggest takeaway from this trip was the importance of community. Everywhere that we visited, people depended on each other." – Christopher Law, past trip participant
Do it. It is the best trip you will ever go on because it has the balance of leisure activities like safaris, but also the direct connection and interaction with the community that could really use your help. It forces you to get out of your comfort zone without even knowing it and it brings you closer to people.” – Ethan Haggerty, past trip participant
