Volunteers benefit as well, bringing home a greater understanding of the conditions under which people around the world live and work. They experience the vast geographical and cultural distances that separate nations while discovering the common threads that connect people and the challenges they share. The connections made between volunteers and those they serve are rewarding on a personal and professional level.
