We would not be here today without the initial efforts of these four amazing friends, who worked tirelessly to inspire others, spread the love and joy, and hold fundraisers to raise a considerable amount of money to restore the bathrooms of the South Government School of Grenada, prior to our becoming an official US nonprofit. We know they will be incredible doctors and leaders in the future and want to give them sincere love and gratitude for all that they have done and continue to do. Thank you and continue to shine the light to all those you meet!
