My 12th TRIP to Sri Lanka

Posted in TRIP Canada Program on August 26, 2019

Amalie Bruun has travelled on every volunteer trip to build in Sri Lanka since her first time in 2009. Her contribution is incredible and so is her love for the work we do and the people of Sri Lanka. Amalie’s full-time job is managing all the logistical and financial aspects of the production of a commercial or other content. As part of a recent assignment, she visited Sri Lanka and wrote this blog for us.

The Journey Begins: Volunteering in Lima

Posted in Machu Picchu Challenge on April 20, 2018

Meeting Our Beneficiaries: Our volunteer team, under the leadership of Doug Wittal arrived safely in Peru on Sunday afternoon after an overnight flight from Vancouver to Mexico City and Mexico City to Lima. This is a much bigger city than I imagined; the van driver told us the population was 11 million. I had no real expectations about Lima but assumed as it was on the ocean, it would be humid and lush. I was wrong on both counts. It is a very dry place; Lima gets very little rain so it is actually very dry and much of the city is very brown.
