What is Time
“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent." ” ~ Carl Sandburg, Poet
Since 2000, members and friends of Toronto First have been participating in World Accord’s Construction Expeditions to Honduras and Guatemala. Over 60 people have volunteered two weeks of their lives to work with other Canadians and local people in the mountains of Honduras and Guatemala to build schools, training and community centres, and houses. This first-hand experience has also built understanding between people and helped improve the social, economic and living conditions in these developing countries. Participants have found these trips so rewarding that many have volunteered more than once.
Our members have found these trips moving personal experiences and World Accord a knowledgeable and reliable provider and recommend them to anyone with a willing heart and two weeks to invest in making a better world.
