Meet Our First VEA: Katie Smith


We are proud to announce our first VEA (Volunteer Expedition Adventurer), Katie Smith. Katie will be joining us in the field in June, in Tuxueca, Jalisco.  She’ll be helping us put together medical kits, act as a ‘guinea pig’ patient for the Promotoras to practice bandaging and taking vitals, and helping with photography and interviews.  She’ll also get the opportunity to use her Spanish.  Please check out her page at and make a donation of whatever amount you can to help her reach her goal!
