Students in grades 9-12 interested in taking part in the service learning trip with Me to We are invited to an information meeting on Thursday, March 11 at 6 p.m. at South Broadview Elementary Library.
At the Feb. 11 meeting it was determined the trip for 2021 would be going to Ecuador, as the original choice of Ethiopia was unavailable.
Those taking part in the trip will venture into the heart of Ecuador’s lush Amazonian rainforest, where you’ll find the world’s most diverse ecosystems. In Otavalo, you’ll experience the culture and heritage of the city, visiting the Mercados ds los Ponchos – a famous market known for its local beautiful textiles – and learning how traditional crafts and meals are prepared when you visit a local family’s home. As you’re immersed in the Quito and Otavalo cultures, you’ll also put your hands to work: building and restoring local schools and promoting social justice.
If you need additional information before the meeting please contact Heather Gobbett at (250) 832-2167.
