I have been going to Zanzibar every winter for the last 4 years. I have taught many children some English and math basics as well as volunteer with a youth group to build houses and help feed some of the less fortunate. Unfortunately since recent terror attacks in the small, high poverty high crime country, the youth group isn’t returning, making my trip there much more expensive. I have grown close with a lot of the people there. I have seen a lot of these people grow. One person in particular, my close friend Yeakpan has used the educational skills we provided and has moved to the United States pursuing a better quality of life. Any little bit helps and let’s save the world together!
