It was our hope that these builds would not only offer unique and meaningful volunteer opportunities for both our scholarship recipients, scholarship alumni, and community leaders, but through brief tours of the areas would allow them an educational experience and a chance to interact and build relationships with people from other countries and communities. The Mitte Foundation offered such opportunity to Mitte scholars and community leaders through participation in four builds:
