Volume 2: Staying For Tea

SHARE:

Introduction From The Editor

If travel and service are important to the development of leaders who engage society with a sense of civic responsibility, and this in turn helps to build the social capital required for healthy democratic governance and for societies to function well, then the Krista Foundation is doing very well to support young adults who commit themselves to significant periods of travel and service. This edition of the Global Citizen contains eight articles written by “Krista Colleagues” – service volunteers who have received support from the foundation. Their topics range widely, but each article provides a window into the transformative process of which Dr. Hunt writes. Each author grapples with a unique set of issues brought to the surface as they served others in a new place. Read the full introduction.
