“It is an amazing experience and really opens your eyes to see how big the world is.”
Thomas Bellamy, 2019 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, 2019 trip participant
