Opportunities to witness the work, progress and impact that our programmes have for our beneficiaries
To explain it briefly, trips are opportunities for our supporters to experience and witness the work, progress and impact of our programmes that are implemented by our field staff. It is also a chance to appreciate the differences our work has made to the communities (our beneficiaries) and understand how the impact could be sustained even beyond our programme period!
You will be visiting areas where you will interact with the poorest and most vulnerable people in the community. These communities that you visit are not usually open to public or tourists.
On top of that, you will also witness how the lives of children, and those in the community have been positively impacted by our programmes - through the means of our 5 pillars: Health & Nutrition, Education, Livelihood, Child Protection, Water Sanitation & Hygiene.
Opportunities for Sponsors to meet their sponsored children
Another highlight of the trips is for sponsors to finally meet up with their sponsored child! Sponsors will get to spend about half a day of quality time with their sponsored child; there will be translators attached to the sponsor, so do not worry about language barriers!
Immerse into the community through community visits
On top of that, you will be visiting some households and schools (subjected to the security policies of the locations), alongside key projects of the area. There will be opportunities for you to interact with the locals as well as the children of the community. Most times, where possible, we do arrange for hands-on activities for our sponsors to experience and immerse themselves into the cultural livelihood of the community.
