ECM is excited to announce a mission trip to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota!
ECM is planning a trip to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwest South Dakota the week after finals. We will be working with a community development organizaqtion called Re-Member (re-member.org). This is one of the most poverty-stricken areas in North America. Part of our time will be spent building bunk beds, installing "skirts" on mobile homes, installing wheelchair ramps, hauling firewood and other manual labor. The other part of our time will be spent immersing ourselves in meeting people, building relationships and learning about the Lakota culture. There is space available for six participants.
When: We will depart in the early morning on Saturday, May 14 and return late on Friday, May 20.
Cost: The cost is $200, nonrefundable, per student, due Wednesday, March 23 to the ECM office, plus personal spending. The $200 is necessary to secure your spot, with preference for current students.
