Last week, Deme one of our volunteers, visited our project sites in Equatorial Guinea! As part of our ongoing effort to provide only sustainable and necessary aid, we work with on-the-ground volunteers to complete at least one visit per year to each of our project sites. During these trips, we assess the impacts of our aid and work with the local community to improve our giving.
