Online High School Classes in Tres Reyes »

The room was quiet with the exception of the clicking of keyboard keys. Ricardo, a newly hired teacher at the Community Center in Tres Reyes, walked behind the three students as they worked on their computers.

Widening Their Reach »

Felt-safety can look different depending on where one is in the world. Large, block walls in America could be perceived as private property, behind it, an expansive estate. Large, block walls in Haiti simply mean safety. When you visit children’s homes in Haiti, and most of Back2Back’s other sites, you will be met with a […]

With Every Last Detail »

Jèsus handed his drawing to Ximena Zarate, Back2Back Cancun Staff, as he walked out of the room. She looked down at the page and saw Andres written at the top. “Jèsus?” she called after him.

Choosing to Make a Difference »

“I don’t want to go to church this morning,” Robensen looked at Wadson Delvar, Back2Back staff, with a small frown on his face. “Why do you not want to go?” Wadson challenged him. “It is too hot, and there are never enough seats,” Robensen said matter-of-factly.
