Rural Community and Project Canaan Service Trip - November 2017, November 18th- November 27th

Each trip participant will have the opportunity to tour Project Canaan and then participate in work projects on the property.   This is a Project Canaan work trip focusing on work that is needed on Project Canaan.  We will celebrate Thanksgiving and also help in preparations for Christmas. There will be one full day serving at homesteads.  This trip includes an optional shopping day.  An optional safari at Hlane Game Park will be made available to those who wish to go as well as an optional outing with the children to the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary.

The trip cost will include the ground costs of $1,600 plus the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa.  Total trip cost below reflects round trip air from Atlanta to Johannesburg (or St. Louis STL-ATL-JNB).  We will post the trip cost with airfare when we have those costs.  Heart for Africa can arrange a feeder flight into Atlanta for an additional cost.  To make arrangements for flights into Atlanta please contact Volunteer Coordinator Sarah Windham at after you register for the trip. 

  • Limited to 22 volunteers.

If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart the United States on November 18th and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on November 19th.  At the conclusion of the trip, you will depart South Africa November 26th and arrive in the United States on November 27th. 

*Please note: The cost with airfare is based on our blocked seating rate with the airlines.  Volunteers must register with air by August 15th, 2017 in order to get the blocked seating rate.  For registrations after this date, we will book individual tickets at the regular published fare at that time.  If we do not have more than ten people sign up with airfare by August 15th, we cannot keep our block and we will need to book individual tickets. The total trip cost may change according to airline rates at that 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 Volunteer Coordinator Sarah Windham at with your travel arrangements.

Please include in the "I'm traveling with:" field on the registration form any notes for Heart for Africa.

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.
