Youth Trip Stories
You can hear the bugs, the frogs, the animals, and after a few nights you kind of fall in love with this place.Alexie
So much physical labour went into it. But it was the start of a school for 180 students. And with having that in mind and seeing the kids around us, it was definitely eye-opening to see how much of a difference you can make.Kaira
Ecuador gave me a purpose. Life is made up of millions of souls touching one another, giving or taking something every time their paths cross. I was touched by so many souls on this trip—it is now my turn to do the same.Maya
The most profound moment of the trip was when we got to make roti with the mamas and go for a water walk. It was moments like these, moments when I could interact with the community members, that really made me take a step back and realize what we were doing and how differently some people live.Miranda
When I heard stories from someone who had worked with Free The Children communities overseas, I wanted to see this work first-hand, and see how Free The Children was helping these communities lift themselves from the cycle of poverty.That’s why I went on my first Me to We Trip to Rural China.Brennan
At the build site, I realized, ‘This is what I came for.’ Brick by brick, we were putting up walls for somewhere that kids will go to school.Jessica
