Week 1

This summer I will be traveling with four others to Bulembu, Swaziland.   Swaziland is a country bordered on three sides by South Africa and on the fourth side by Mozambique.  Swaziland also houses an orphan population of 150,000.  As a group we are working in Bulembu doing maintainance projects and helping care for the orphans.   Bulembu is an ambitious attempt by entrepreneurs to help create a self-sustainable city as a way to give hope to the Swazi people.  My personal goals for the trip are: to develop lasting relationships, help the people of Bulembu to reach their goal, learn from their culture, and see how we can help after our time there is finished.
