My organization has partnered with PLAN for a decade, and I have been volunteering with PLAN for 6 years. I also had the opportunity to visit an educational project site in Nepal. I so valued seeing how the project is always staffed in country and region, providing opportunities and economic growth to the area they are serving. I was impressed to see and learn more about not only the educational project, but also the healthcare, water, and girl empowerment projects in the area.
