At the end of the trip, the delegation thanked the local brothers and sisters for joining hands during the trip, overcoming many difficulties and fatigue to complete the set plan. On the way back, I couldn’t stop thinking when will I come back to this place? How can we help bring about sustainable living to struggling families and disadvantaged children? How can we help children go to school? They will happily choose the learning path so that in the future, they will join hands to improve the village, overcome difficulties, and build a happy life!
