2018 Trip To Yimbo and Egypt

Inspired by the work of the previous travelers to Yimbo, another group of 15 volunteers completed a very successful trip to Muguna Village in July 2018. The volunteers stayed a total of six nights in the village and worked alongside the people of Muguna  in the focus areas of education, micro-enterprise, public health and clean water.

The six days marked the most days a group has ever stayed in the village and the volunteers took every advantage of every waking day to do meaningful work that changes lives in Muguna.
