Poverty is a scourge in our society. You will through this program learn the reason for poverty and you will also do something about it by working bottom up projects with poor people. You will spend the first 3 months in St. Vincent which is one of the poorest countries in the Caribbean and you will work and implement projects with people in Ecuador or Belize. You will realize that poverty is not a static thing but that we can do something about it. Bringing energy and good mood and project implementation into communities will help break the evil circle of poverty.
