The Giving Trip
Featured Writer: Executive Director Jan Hanson
In early January 2007, I boarded an early morning flight from Minneapolis making my way to Ayacucho, Peru. While boarding the flight to the Andean city, a woman asked in broken English where I was going. I told her I was serving as an international volunteer in Ayacucho. She said, “It’s very poor there.” That is precisely why I chose to spend two weeks working with orphans in Ayacucho and it was a trip that changed my life forever.
