November 2020 Service Trip

Christmas in Eswatini

Christmas in Eswatini, Project Canaan Service Trip - November 21st  -  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.)

The trip cost will include the ground costs of $1,830 PLUS the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa.  Flight costs will be available for this trip at the beginning of 2020.  Trip cost below reflects total cost with airfare (final costs still to be determined).  For flights through Denver, Toronto or another city please contact Volunteer Coordinator Sarah Windham at for costs.

If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart the United States 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 the United States 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 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.
