This winter we're traveling to Ghana to help bring more environmentally sustainable technology to a local community. We'll be working with a local NGO called Challenging Heights which provides an education to former child slaves. We're a group of 16 students from the University of Maryland traveling with Maryland Hillel and American Jewish World Service, spending our winter break volunteering and learning about the impact and importance of social justice work. Please support our cause by contributing to our team as a whole, or to an individual team member.

This trip is part of the Maryland Hillel Alternative Break program, which is one of the largest in the country taking over 150 students on 8 trips across the country and the world. On these trips, students engage in active service, interact with Jewish communities and learn about social issues and self. Maryland Hillel and Hillel and Repair the World offer students the opportunity to immerse themselves in domestic and global communities in order to learn about and actively combat social justice issues. Alternative Breaks inspire students to understand their role in the world and their ability to make change. Alternative breaks challenge students to think critically about the relationship between social justice and Judaism and about our personal obligation to others and ability to make change in the world.
