I am a RDH(registered dental hygienist) from the state of Washington who has traveled throughout the world for a number of years with a number of non-profits. I have just returned from my 7th trip with Hearts In Motion and would recommend this organization over all others I have experience with. The organization is extremely well run and it is evident that their primary concern our the lives of those they are called to serve whether in the United States of abroad.
I am also the co-founder and president of my own non-profit and old all others to the same standards with which ours is run.
Sincerely,
Marj Olason, RDH

I have been volunteering with Hearts In Motin (based in Highland, Indiana), and traveling to Guatemala for over 10 years. I assist in the medical clinics, primarily checking the vision of our under-resourced visitors. We give away, free of charge, eyeglasses, reading glasses and sunglasses that have been donated by our friends, families and through special collections at our churches, schools and other contacts. Being able to give a young mother eyeglasses so she can read to her child, or to a father so he can make a living for his family is an amazing opportunity. Hearts In Motion has given me an opportunity to change lives for the better, including my own. I have been able to see what is truly important -- to help others, to show love and compassion to those who have little. It makes me appreciate the things in life that have nothing to do with money or status.

The Great!

I have seen the changes that Hearts In Motion has made in the communities they serve. They provide free health care, surgeries (orthopedic, facial reconstruction, and gynecological), physical therapy, prosthetics, vision exams and eye glasses, dental exams, extractions and treatments. They have transformed the local hospital through remodeling projects as well, and have constructed schools, playgrounds and daycare centers.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

They need long-term volunteers who have the same vision as Hearts In Motion, and the level of compassion and skills needed to fulfill its many goals.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Absolutely! I have become a little more proficient in speaking Spanish, and learned how to give eye exams and the necessary equipment involved in doing so. I have learned to be a better leader, and have encouraged and brought along many friends and family to enjoy the same experience.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I am making a difference!
