This case study tells the personal story of how an American orphan's life experiences and passion to give back led to the building of an orphanage in Mexico for abandoned children. As we expand international collaboration as part of humanitarian efforts, global competencies can provide a framework for deeper understanding of the issues we are addressing, an awareness and sensitivity to different cultures, and mutual respect for different opinions. The work done in Mexico demonstrates that, working together, we can make a difference in the lives of children who come from deplorable living conditions.
