B3 is a non-profit organization that brings together kids from all over Fairfield County to participate in a one-week trip to a developing country. This year, three teams traveled in February, one team in March and three teams traveled in April to three different communities within the designated country.
B3 chooses the country and communities we visit within that country based on their need for our help. We partner with local projects that determine where the need is and if they need our help to complete these projects. Every time we go into a country, it is because the need is there.
This year, my team traveled to Guatemala. We went to a community called Balanyá, which is about an hour away from the capital, Guatemala City. For our project, we focused on building classrooms, teaching English at a nearby school and building stoves for a mountainside village.
