There is a growing awareness of ethical practices relevant to international service work. Good intentions alone are not adequate in properly addressing a community's needs. Louise Power, our Field Operations Manager in La Merced, Peru, is weighing in on effective and ethical approaches to volunteer abroad.
We've seen lives change after underserved populations are given access to medical care. Working alongside our deserving communities is a pleasure. Beyond the number of patients we treat, our impact is one of quality. Our GHVP Manager Logan is sharing his first-hand experience working with the community in Alajuelita, Costa Rica.
You're willing to serve communities on an international service trip. Your next step? Find an opportunity that meets your volunteer goals. Choosing the right travel destination is an important part of finding the right fit.
