In 3 months, a group of nursing students and faculty are scheduled for an international health promotion experience in Ecuador, South America. As part of their preparation, the faculty and students meet regularly to start becoming familiar with the community they will be visiting and their role as international volunteers as well as to prepare for the work they will be doing. The university sends a group of students to this community twice a year; however, there are many other “medical missions” that also serve this community.
1. What should the students know about the community before they go?
2. How will the students find out about the community?
3. What sort of burden do short-term mission trips place on communities in developing countries?
