Two volunteers from the Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) of The Episcopal Church have come to join in the ministries of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines (ECP) for one-year terms of service.
Ben Hansknecht, a graduate of Wildlife Management, will be working on tree planting and other ecological restoration projects in the Visayas Mission Area, a program established by ECP’s E-Care Foundation after Typhoon Yolanda in 2013. Ben will be based in Sabang Bao, a housing development and community for victims of the typhoon.
Caroline Sprinkle, a graduate of Wake Forest University in North Carolina, will be working in t
he Episcopal Diocese of North Luzon (EDNL), where she will be a staff of our E-CARE Foundation, doing community development work and also working in the area of carbon reduction.
ECP has been receiving YASC volunteers for several years already, and we have greatly benefited from their energy, thoughtfulness and commitment to the work of the Church.
