Excellent Program.

The program makes the kids experience the knowledge they may read or hear about in text books, on tv or the internet. Field excursions leave a lifetime of knowledge, excitement and fun for everyone. At 57, I still remember with fun and glee our class visit or excursion to the water treatment plant in my country Ghana.

I learned to respect the importance of NOT poluting the rivers that provide the water we drink everday from that excursion. All kids must have the opportunity to go on such enlightening excursions.

Our local communities and the world be better off for it.

THANK YOU.
