|2003 Community Service Trip to Tobati|
On the team's fifth community service trip to Tobati, the squad was made up of 45 students, 9 teachers, 1 alumni, and 13 Connecticut doctors, totaling 68 volunteers. During each morning and afternoon session, the team was broken up into 7 different work sub-teams. These different sub-teams rotated between a wide variety of jobs and activities, which all served to strengthen the healthcare and educactional infrastructure made available to the poor of the region. Each project was funded by the team.

- Each day, two sub-teams helped in the construction of the Macchi education center.
- Another two or three groups helped build an expansion to El Centro de Salud, which will serve as a pediactric wing.
- Another group helped in the construction of 6 expansios to very poor houses while other groups worked on the construction of 40 bathrooms in Mompox.
- Sub-teams also took turns visiting over twenty schools and distributed clothes, toys, and school supplies to children in poor neighborhoods.
- The team also funded and participated in a program that supplied a toothbrush and flouride to over 10,000 Tobati students.
- One sub-team, spent the morning or afternoon with our Connecticut doctors each day, helping them run free clinics. The trip was an outstanding example of generosity and solidarity.
