Review for Movement Exchange, Half Moon Bay, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Movement Exchange gets it right. Their model of sustainability is exemplary. I am a surgeon, who still passionately tap dances, and I went on one of the trips to Panama. The collaboration with local dance instructors creates a year long presence for these kids, establishes true role models for them, and introduces them to new friends from abroad. In so doing, this program stakes commitment in the soil of those it serves and embodies the beauty of cultural exchange. Plenty of medical mission trips don't get this right. Too often there is fly-by volunteerism and then gaping absence - Not with Movement Exchange. Their contribution is constant, steady, compassionate, and effective.
