In consultation with you, we can develop a programme for you and your group working with your areas of interest and your desired outcomes.
We can design programmes to Cuba, Guatemala, India, Thailand, New Mexico and Taize for groups of youth and adults. All programmes focus on connecting people in the host country/region with the group and building relationships, sharing time, stories, and providing education on our global reality and ultimately finding ways to make a difference. We can link you with worthwhile projects where you may wish to volunteer for a short or longer stay as well.
Custom designed tours of the past:
-Youth Group trip to Cuba, where the youth connected with a youth group in Cuba, met one another, spent time together, worked in an organic garden, visited school and day care centres, we hosted by Cubans in their homes for meals, spent time in Havana and at the beach.
