Testimonies from those who attended previously:

"This was an excellent introduction for me into the world of international development. This came at a great time, too. My wife and I were chatting several months ago about some talents and gifts we have that we’d like to be more intentional about using to bring help and hope....I think this training provided a firm introduction to me. I really like the GHNI way of empowering local communities to take charge of their own futures. Additionally, I really appreciated all of the group discussions. Everyone in the group was incredibly brilliant, had amazing ideas and experiences....especially for a newbie like me."

"Good trainers."

"Hands-on farm experience, pit latrine, field style showers" 

"Lessons on TCD and transforming lives were my favorite part"

"We enjoyed getting to work with the farm animals and other farm chores"
