Trip Details

Flatirons is sending a team of Men to Afghanistan to partner with Sozo International.  The purpose of this trip is to continue to strengthen the bond between Flatirons and Sozo by visiting the school, clinic, and communities Sozo is impacting.  Trip participants should be willing to interact and engage in conversation with Afghans, be committed to the vision of Flatirons, and be good team players in participating in whatever activity Sozo may ask.  For more information about Sozo visit their website.
