The Toolkit

Your commitment, energy, skills, talent, and time are your most valuable assets as a volunteer. As this site clearly illustrates, however, some preparatory legwork will surely help make your trip easier to manage. In hatching your travel plans, make smart use of these comprehensive guides to Dental and Equipment Selection, Personal Items, and Packing and Shipping of Equipment. Put these tools to work for you to ensure that your work is most helpful to others.
