We are thrilled to be working directly with the Sapa community this expedition! We will be working in a remote village where they face poverty and experience extreme cold weather in winter. We are excited to get to work in construction as we provide the community with a kitchen and a refuge for the winter. We will also be working closely to educate the primary and secondary school children to improve their current situations, unite their communities, and open doors to opportunities. Get ready to put on your gloves, and get to work!
