In February 2013, Dr. Anne Wall volunteered at the La Toma school in Nuahualate, San Antonio, a remote area about an hour east of Mazatenango. She was part of a team who built two new classrooms at the school. Prior to her trip, Dr. Wall worked with her instructional technology students to create books of reusable instructional materials for each of the teachers at the school.

One of APSU College of Education's MAT students, Mr. Sospeter Nyabera, is a native of Kisii, Kenya. As a Project MORE scholar he made a presentation for his peers on the level of poverty in schools throughout Kenya. Project MORE decided to send school supplies over the holidays. Sospeter brought back several pictures and videos from his presentation to the parents, principal and students of Esinyo Elementary School.
