CHRISTMAS IN ESWATINI SERVICE TRIP

 

November 21st through December 1st, 2020

This team will spend the week getting a closer look at the many growing and valuable projects taking place on Project Canaan and in the surrounding communities.  Extended time will be spent serving and interacting with the children, as well as visiting the Khutsala Artisan Shop.  A homestead visit in the community for food distribution will take place as well as an afternoon safari/shopping trip.  The team will also be helping prepare Project Canaan for Christmas (making cookies, decorating, preparing for the children’s Christmas pageant, etc.)  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.  Trip cost below reflects total cost with airfare (final costs still to be determined).  To register for this trip and to make arrangements for flights (including flights into the departure cities below) please contact Volunteer Coordinator Sarah Windham at sarah@heartforafrica.org.

If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart Canada on November 21st and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on November 22nd.  At the conclusion of the trip, you will depart South Africa November 30th and arrive in Canada on December 1st.

*Please note:  The cost with airfare is based on our blocked seating rate with the airlines.  Volunteers must register with air by August 16, 2020 in order to get the blocked seating rate.  For registrations after this date, we will book individual tickets at the regular published fare at the time.  If we do not have more than ten people sign up with airfare by August 16, 2020, we cannot keep our block and we will need to book individual tickets.  The total trip cost my change according to airline rates at the time.

Self Bookers (No airfare through Heart for Africa)

If you are self-booking your own airfare, you will need to coordinate your arrival and departure in South Africa with Heart for Africa in order to join the rest of the team.  Please contact Sarah Windham with your travel arrangements before they are booked/finalized.

Please note that Canada Revenue Agency does not permit issuance of official tax receipts for payments made toward service trips.

The costs of the trips include lodging, meals, supplies, ground transportation, administrative fees and airfare (if you have elected for Heart for Africa to arrange the air portion of your trip).  Due to cost and exchange rate adjustments, any remaining funds will go toward general support of the mission.
