Wayne Hoerning was one of two overseas volunteers to work on the transformation of Nelson Street Girls’ RC School for Project Care TT in late May. He recently sent his experience to share with Catholic News readers.

I first got involved with Project Care TT three years ago when I was asked by our customer and friend Ryan Ali if we would be able to donate some materials to cover the floors in the bathrooms and hallways of the school that they were working on that year.
