Avi Kerendian's "Gracias" Global Health Trip's creates sustainable change in Latin America and Uganda with an engaging and fun approach.

HOUSTON - eTradeWire -- GGHTX aims to change the context in which thousands of people volunteer around the world.

The objective is to team up with local volunteer centers in developing areas to bring together the volunteers, donations, and necessary resources that local communities need, with an eye towards fostering self-sufficiency. In addition to doing your bit for the underprivileged and needy, we asked ourselves, why not enjoy the journey as if it were a holiday? A holiday of solidarity.

"If you want an experience that will challenge you on a daily basis, give you an opportunity to lift up others and give back, and have fun, then GGHTx is the trip for you. You're working hard and having fun from the moment you step off the plane until the day you leave. You'll never have a boring moment here; I can promise that." - Avi Kerendian, GGHTx Program Director

Thanks to GGHTX, now it is possible to live an authentic adventure while helping to create sustainable projects in developing communities.


The aim of this innovative approach is to de-stigmatize volunteer work, especially among young people, and to motivate more peers to join these initiatives.

GGHTX strongly believes in holistic responses that enable individuals, and the communities to which they belong, to lead full lives in accordance with their needs and interests, fostering their capabilities and autonomy. At the level of humanitarian aid, they focus on the transformative capacity that we all have, developing actions to raise awareness about the reality in Latin America and Uganda, to build a new present and a better future.

The volunteers of the GGHTX programs must respect at all times the dignity and the absolute value of the local people, offering their service with humility; working as a team, complementing their task with the rest of their fellows, as well as being supportive and responsible, fulfilling their commitments with diligence and in an organized manner.

The GGHTX volunteering, apart from being an experience where there is room for enjoyment, is a committed service that believes in social change towards a more fair society, which shapes, through its participation, values such as solidarity, gratuity, equality. The coordinators of each project strive to make it also an educational, dynamic, and flexible process, framed in a team and community work, which guarantees the adequate care and accompaniment of each volunteer.
