"We traveled, we taught, we learned as well.  I know that each time we leave; we leave with more than we brought.  We carry the smiles, the friendships we made, and the knowledge of the needs of the communities." – Laurie Roberts

 Nancy Maaty

 "With this trip, I realized that the only thing better than volunteering the first time, is volunteering the second time. ─ I felt like I made a difference by going back to the country of my origin to teach the skills I have learned.  At first I was worried if I had made any significant impact. But, this year I saw the importance and the demand of my presentations." – Nancy Maaty
