Abby Zimmerman President of the Interact Club at Shawnee Mission Northwest HS.

Woodland continues implemented projects and programs in communities in need. This is possible thanks to the great support and engagement of volunteers form USA and other countries.

Water filters, cook stoves, medical checkups, dental treatment, scholarship are some of the examples of the projects that volunteesr implement during their trips but more important is that local communities participate actively and take ownership with the training and support provide by Woodland volunteers.

Today Woodland highlights the experience/comment of one of the many outstanding volunteers that visited Guatemala in July 2013.

“We worked in the village of San Antonio. After taking a bus ride up into the mountains, we gave the kids at the local school eye exams and checked some of the water filters in the community. I was amazed at the number of students and teachers who had been living with poor, or some cases horrible, vision. I definitely could not function that gracefully without my contacts....It makes you appreciate everything we have at home.”

“We're incredibly grateful for the family, friends, and Rotarians who have helped us raise the money to get here. Special thanks goes to the Lenexa club for a matching grant, as well as the Shawnee, Johnson County, and Western Johnson County clubs for their generous donations. This would not have been possible without Rotary. Also, we’d like to thank Applebee’s, Hy-Vee, Peachwave, and Sonic for allowing us to do multiple fundraisers. Finally, a big thank you is due for everyone who purchased a Sponsor a Student or made an individual donation. We don't know what we would do without you, and we hope that the work we do here will make you proud.”

Volunteers at Lake Atitlan in July 2013

The team has absolutely loved interacting with the children. They are probably some of the sweetest kids you'll meet, and some of the funniest. You've got to love trying to see who can make the craziest face, especially when you're competing with a group of 4th grade boys. And nothing in the world is more rewarding than a hug and a smile.”
