Volunteer Work

During the summer of July 2018, I had the opportunity to travel to Ethiopia as a volunteer missionary. During the course of the trip, my responsibility was to keep financial statements, assisted in converting our group’s money to the Ethiopian Birr, and a final report that reflects our efforts. This Infographic was used to display expense breakdown and the number of people served throughout the course of our stay.
