“Travel With Passion and Purpose”
“People seek us out, and share stories of their lives, their history and their challenges.”
“It made me a kinder person, a warmer person, and even a less-judgmental person. But really, it gave me tremendous perspective.”
“Almost everyone I met in one way or another thanked me just for coming there.”
“You realize you have something in common with the people you’re working with. It really is waging peace through justice worldwide.”
“These have been among the most meaningful and beneficial experiences in my life.”
