Jennifer has a special love for the Philippines. Through Rotary International, she's taken three groups to the Vizayas region to work with local villages. It is a beautiful country, but the draw is the people. Her teams have worked on livelihood, sanitation and nutrition projects, gone island hopping, and made friends and memories that keep beckoning them back.
I wanted to meet people in the most dire situations: orphans prisoners, victims of typhoons, patients and those living in poverty. And in every case, I found them to be happy. As long as they had enough to eat, and their family close by, they were happy. Happiness is a culture.
