SPRING BREAK 202O SERVICE TRIP

 

March 20 through March 30, 2020

Each volunteer will tour Project Canaan and have the opportunity to visit a local homestead and participate in work projects that are needed on the property. Many of the volunteers for this trip will be teenagers on their spring break, so we will focus on opportunities for the group to serve and experience Swazi culture through orientations and serving on the Children’s Campus.  Volunteers can register with a $250 deposit that will reserve a spot on this trip.  Meeting the funding deadlines that will be communicated to participants will be required in order to keep spots on this trip.

The trip cost will include the ground costs PLUS the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa.  The total trip cost below reflects round trip airfare from Atlanta via Toronto to Johannesburg.  Heart for Africa can arrange a different feeder flight into Toronto for an additional cost.  To register for the trip and to make arrangements for flights into Toronto please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Windham, at sarah@heartforafrica.org.  Total trip costs will be posted when we have finalized costs with flights.

If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart Canada on March 20th and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on March 22nd.  At the conclusion of the trip, you will depart South Africa on March 29th and arrive in Canada on March 30th.

The total trip cost may change according to airline rates at that time.
