In this week’s edition of #WhatsUpWednesday, we have volunteer opportunities to uplift young girls, a recipe that is both delicious and nutritious, and snapshots of our nonprofits in action: celebrating the joy of reading in schools, ensuring the safety and health of those living on the street, and showing off agricultural achievements!
