In recognition of World Humanitarian Day, we would like to honor and give thanks for our volunteers whose generosity made the last exchange possible. It takes courage to travel to West Africa in service to others you have not met yet; to leave the comforts of our lives, our families, familiarity and abundant resources of western life. Stepping onto foreign lands makes us vulnerable- physically and emotionally. Surrendering to a slower pace and walking a connected path with others changes the lens through which you see and experience the world. This stretches you- internally and externally. Africa changes you. When you leave, you may never be the same. That takes courage. Tremendous courage!
We stand in awe of the generosity of Amy, Erin, Kelvin, Laurie, Mike, Nicole, Seth and Whitney who all traveled to Ghana and have continued to offer their time and talent to making the world a better place by connecting children globally. You have expanded the hearts and minds of thousands of children, and sent ripples of love and compassion out into the world. Akpe kakaka infinity!
