Project Presence 2020
There is nothing like making a difference in the lives of others. Inevitably, your desire to help results in being changed and helped yourself! Since my (Danielle’s) first trip to Africa in 1995, I have been shaped and moved and CHANGED because of my opportunities overseas.
Awake and Alive’s Project Presence trips have always been first and foremost about debunking myths of inadequacy and unworthiness for the people in the community of Kechene in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We do this through building relationships and serving in a variety of ways. Here are some basic details about what we plan to do summer 2020.
