Review for The Maya Gold Foundation, Inc., New Paltz, NY, USA
Our son went on a 2 week trip to Nepal with the Maya Gold Foundation. He and the other teens on the trip were called "Youth Ambassadors." The empowerment that this name suggests was manifested in so many ways throughout the trip. The experience was deeply meaningful, beyond educational - definitely life changing. Not only did they sight see and learn about culture and religion, but they had the opportunity to develop personal relationships with Nepali teens, learn about the issue of trafficking and interact with women survivors who have successfully re-entered society, and contribute to the lives of young Nepali children through community service at a school. The trip was super well organized and the staff provided such thoughtful support of the Youth Ambassadors.
