International Samaritan was founded by students who went on a service trip to Guatemala in 1995. Therefore, we made service immersion trip as an integral part of our mission. We provide individuals with opportunity to take part in the lives of those living in garbage dump poverty and work hand in hand with them.
The goal of service immersion trip is to raise awareness about garbage dump poverty but also to provide an experience that will change perspectives on poverty and lead volunteers to further in their compassion and action for the rest of their lives.
