This is a wonderful group that connects people with each other in a meaningful way to do work projects that local community members have asked for. The strength of this group lies in its personal connections in the community. We volunteers worked side by side with local volunteers and got to know them on a personal level. The organization is small and flexible enough to allow us volunteers to branch out from the project at hand and devote some time and skills to other projects that came up during our stay in the community.We had a local guide and were well cared for as we worked and learned. Highly recommended this group.
