BoliviaBolivia: Chagas Project

Dates: May 8-22, 2015
Contribution amount: $3,200
Application deadline: February 9, 2015

Chagas disease is a silent killer among the poor in Bolivia. It is transmitted by the Vinchuca insect, which thrives in adobe walls and thatched roofs, common materials used in Bolivian homes. The parasite enters the victim’s bloodstream and can live undetected for decades while quietly destroying their internal organs, especially the heart. The Chagas disease can be treated if caught in time.

The Ecumenical Chagas Team, comprised of volunteers from the various ecumenical agencies that sponsor the Chagas project, will be involved in helping plaster the walls and ceilings and pour a cement floor, which will stop the insect from living in the house. The home owners will also be working alongside the team. The team will also have the opportunity to visit some health clinics, become involved in community outreach, visit some local homes and engage with local officials.

Presbyterian World Service & Development (PWS&D), through Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM), has been working with the Chagas Project since March of 2014. This trip will be coordinated by CBM.

Aug 1 workingTeach English in China

July 2015 – one month
Deadline for applications: February 1, 2015
Space is limited, so apply early!

The Amity Summer English Program is a one-month adventure for fluent English speakers to teach rural Chinese middle school English teachers how to develop their listening and speaking skills. These teachers are often the only ones who speak English in their school and have very little opportunity to maintain and improve their skills. As you help provide a three-week English training course you will learn first-hand about China and its people, worship in local churches, experience life with Chinese Christian and help promote cross-cultural dialogue.

Athena, the teacher of 55 grade one students in rural China shares “learning about the traditions and beliefs of Canadians and comparing them to Chinese practices, has shown that we are all similar; we all have the same goal, to share our love of language and to help our students be the best they can be.”

Janice Harper, a 2014 volunteer from Knox Presbyterian Church in Waterloo, ON, says “My own approach to teaching has even changed as a result of our experiences in China, and that is after being a teacher for 32 years!”
