The photos below illustrate a PUSHPA mission on which five volunteers helped a village near Ganapavaram build ten latrines.
Accomplishing More With Partners
The above documented mission is an example of PUSHPA's use of collaboration to enhance the effectiveness of its effort. Global Citizens Network (GCN), which is an international humanitarian organization, teamed with PUSHPA to provide volunteers for this mission, while PUSHPA provided the logistics for the mission's success.
Over the course of many years, PUSHPA worked to establish trust with the people of this village, which enabled immediate acceptance of the GCN volunteers within the village. The volunteers experienced the satisfaction of working side by side with the villagers to accomplish a mutual goal; an ideal way to engender friendship, even in the absence of a common language.
