Spotlight on Project Anconcito, Ecuador

Each volunteer’s reason for choosing Project Anconcito and their experiences on site are as unique as the volunteers themselves. Meet three special volunteers who served with us in Ecuador in 2018. Makda Mehari, a junior at Centre College, who served for five weeks as part of the Lincoln Scholars program at Centre College; Catie O’Reilly, a junior at Vanderbilt University and part of the Ingram Scholars program; and Kathleen Hopps, a high school student from Illinois.
