    Victoria is from Canada and has volunteered a number of times before. With just a short space of time to spare, she made the exciting decision to join one of Kaya's projects in Bolivia for 2 weeks. Why did you choose Kaya? I chose Kaya because it had programs that were reasonably priced and from the mission statement it seemed like an organization that wasn’t just concerned about making a profit, but …
