“I love seeing students realize the part they can play in the global world and having their sense of happiness challenged by those seemingly less fortunate. The Simunye Project challenges a person’s priorities and re-establishes and re-aligns the things that really matter.”
“The Simunye Project brings to light the decisions we make on a daily basis that shape our lives – we can choose to be of service, we can choose to be joyful, we can choose to look for the ways we are all linked together.”
