This 231st team to Costa Rica is made up of eight volunteers excited to serve. There is the Jhaveri family from Austin, Texas – Ravi and Rita and their three children Vijay, Maya, and Priya. Tom and his daughter Katie of Atlanta are participating on their third service program with Global Volunteers. They have served for the past two summers in Quito, Ecuador and decided to experience a new country through service for their third program. And last but not least is Megan of Minnesota who just just graduated from college and majored in Spanish.
Excerpt from Team Journal Entry for Tuesday, June 9
This week has been off to a great start. Along with serving the local community we have been meeting some really amazing people. Today we saved lives! Once we had gotten to the pond, which had been drained, there was oysters everywhere so we picked them up and threw them back into the pond. We also saw that the mama pig who was pregnant yesterday had brand new piglets today.
