By helping out with some farm work like de-grassing, the volunteers experienced the hardship of the farmers’ lives who, despite heat or rain, or the uncertainty of the crop harvest, continue to work on their land. The farmers have a big dream ---- to produce a sustainable income stream that would increase their chances to be elevated above the poverty line. Their children would then be able to receive higher education and in turn, have a better future.
The opportunity to help the less fortunate was an enlightening experience for the volunteers. Moreover, the event brought the volunteers closer to our environment and enriched their understanding of environmental conservation and sustainability.
