Join us on a trip that will change lives…theirs and yours! You will have the opportunity to visit communities, participate in safe water projects, interact with children and families, learn about their culture, and experience, firsthand, the impact safe water, sanitation, and hygiene education has on these communities.
These are unique opportunities to gain invaluable experience volunteering abroad, being of service to others, and experiencing another culture and way of life.
A volunteer trip to Honduras includes hands – on activities like: installing water filters, building school latrines, laying water piping, administering anti-parasite medicine and interacting with children and families. It also includes visiting cultural sites and getting to know the people and culture of Honduras.
A volunteer trip to Haiti includes travel to rural communities to see PWW’s work in action; visiting homes and schools where PWW is currently working; learning about Haiti and the Haitian culture by visiting places of interest; interacting with children and community members.
YOU will be part of the solution. Clean water, sanitation and hygiene bring lasting change. Your participation will directly impact families, giving them the foundation for a healthier, more prosperous future.
