Hola Todos! I am asking for community support to make a trip to Cuba with the Rainbow World Fund. Growing up I never really had the accessibility to travel; yet I hope here I can make it happen. Javi
This comes at a time where my life is still in limbo. I recently moved back to my home city San Francisco, and I have found it challenging to find the work that truly inspires me. The work that does nurture me is usually volunteer avenues and so with that I am calling upon you all to help me make my goal. 10 days in Cuba will be an unforgettable experience, which I hope to share with all of you through photos, videos, and narratives from the peoples of Cuba.
The Journey will include the opportunity to encounter new lands and peoples in a way that values them, deepens our spirituality, broadens our worldview and begins to heal the world. We will learn about the cultural, historical, spiritual, and political realities of the developing world. Explore human rights issues with a people whose traditions span centuries of development. Experience ancient, colonial, and modern influences that have molded cultures of unique strength and deep faith. We will help deliver medical and educational supplies to those in Cuba.
Founded in 2000, Rainbow World Fund is the world's first and only all-volunteer, LGBTQ-based humanitarian aid organization.

RWF has donated over $4.4 million in humanitarian aid such as financial grants, food, water, medicine, medical equipment, and art and school supplies.
