Those of us who have been to South Africa have a secret we’d like to share. The trip is guaranteed to be a life-transforming experience, unlike any other. It will stir you, move you, reach you in unexpected ways. There is nothing like it. If you haven’t been, consider going. Put it on your bucket list and make plans. But be forewarned: those who venture off the well-trodden tourist path to visit organizations like the ones we support usually return to South Africa time and time again – or wish they could.
