What to Expect

As soon as you arrive, you will be immersed in a week of:

Learning

Experiential learning is a priority. As an individual and team member, you will be given the opportunity to learn about and from the Honduran culture. Your projects might even help you develop a few new skills!

Serving

Your week of building, painting, organizing, etc… enables us to improve our facility and quality of care we are able to provide our children. In addition, serving with love is an important legacy we can leave with the world we are blessed to be a part of. Most people come away from their week’s experience certain that they received far more than they gave!

Growing

We believe that making a better world begins with our own lives. We value each person’s spiritual journey and encourage time for reflection, journaling and solitude. We appreciated the diversity and richness of each person’s path and seek to be an inclusive community.
