Organization: Developing World Connections
Event: Student Volunteer Trip to Swaziland
Date: May 16 – June 22nd , 2010
The Student Volunteer Trip to Swaziland was an opportunity to build homes for families in need and work with the Swazi children in a local school. Participants developed a better understanding of the quality of life for those living in this region of the world. The benefits from this volunteer opportunity include being able to develop relationships with the Swazi people, particularly the children of the SOS orphanage. As well, many relationships were developed among the participants given the need to work together to accomplish common goals.
