Giving back is an important and rewarding part of the human experience. Ecuador is still a Third World Country in many respects where 60% of the population still lives below the poverty line. You wouldn't know it by the smiles on their faces and their generous hearts, offering a helping hand whenever needed. We will spend Thursday afternoon in the town of Mindo, a well-known cloud forest reserve, helping those in need. The Project will be determined closer to the time of the retreat, but it will be a heart-warming experience working side by side with the Ecuadorian people.
