Village We became a part of a new
community and witnessed
the triumph of hope.
"Hope is being able to see that
there is light despite all of the
darkness." - Desmond Tutu Nyumbani Village is a model bio-friendly
and self-sustaining community serving
orphans and elders who have been left
behind by the "lost generation" resulting
from the HIV/AIDS pandemic. While learning about the village and Kenyan
culture, we must focus on the local skills of
residents. They are the real building blocks
of development. We challenge the classical
development paradigm. The capacity to endure by living within the
capacity of supporting eco-systems.
Exemplified by local agriculture in the village
with organic methods and permaculture.
"Come forth into the light of things, let nature
be your teacher." - William Woodsworth To put community at the center of ones life
and to always be engaged with social change and
"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable.Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice,suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals." - MLK We must question privilege and
advocate for equal opportunity
despite economic origin, ethnic origin,
gender, religion, etc.

heritage and address a global inequality
which oppresses its people.
We hope to a small a part of progress. "Everywhere the human soul stands between a
hemishpere of light and another of darkness; on the
confines of the two everlasting empires, necessity and
free will." - Thomas Carlyle International alternative breaks bring about culture clash. We must be sensitive to cultural diversity and have a deep reverence for varying perspective. A group of 6 W&M students

heads together to address
shortcomings. Same day, different
