LAS students travel with a purpose. In the case of 15 girls and boys last May, the purpose was to assist two Portuguese families to refurbish their homes.
Our students came face to face with poverty – and with the courage and compassion of individuals who have not had the chance to understand anything but poverty. From laying tile to painting, mixing cement to hanging doors, LAS students are making a difference.
Three students, all of whom worked very hard in 2012, signed up for another week of building in 2013, this time in Katowice, Poland. There they will help complete a renovation of a housing complex for otherwise homeless young women.
Our students live the compassion of our LAS mission statement.
