A little nervous... but freakin' exciting!

The African Childcare Center (Bagamoyo, Tanzania)This is our first blog post, so I think it's fitting to tell you how this all started:

In the summer of 2007 I was trying to figure out what to do with my time. Like most 23 year old college students, my primary concern was finding something to pump up my resume, but I had been too lazy to look for an internship and I really just wanted to travel anyways. So I came across this concept of going abroad to volunteer. Check resume pumpage, check travel.
