Every year our school does a humanitarian trip to an Andean village called Chicalpamba with Secondary 4 students (Grade 10)  and we work along side the villagers to help them with their projects. This year we helped them with their clean water project by digging kilometres of trenches and buying them kilometres of plastic water pipe. Hopefully in the near future they will have a functioning source of clean running water for each house of the village. I have been privileged to supervise this trip three times and have gotten to know and become friends with the villagers.
