SPRING BREAK 2020 SERVICE TRIP

 

March 2020 Spring Break Volunteer Trip - March 20 through March 30, 2020

Each volunteer will tour Project Canaan and have the opportunity to visit a local homestead and participate in work projects that are needed on the property. Many of the volunteers for this trip will be teenagers on their spring break, so we will focus on opportunities for the group to serve and experience Swazi culture through orientations and serving on the Children's Campus.  Volunteers can register below with a $250 deposit that will reserve a spot on this trip.  Meeting the funding deadlines that will communicated to participants will be required in order to keep spots on this trip.

The trip cost will include the ground costs of $1,840 PLUS the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa.  The total trip cost below reflects round trip airfare from Atlanta (or STL-ATL-JNB or ORD-ATL-JNB) to Johannesburg.  Heart for Africa can arrange a different feeder flight into Atlanta for an additional cost.  To make arrangements for flights into Atlanta please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Windham, at sarah@heartforafrica.org after you register for the trip.  Total trip costs will be posted when we have finalized costs with flights. 

If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart the United States on March 20th and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on March 22nd.  At the conclusion of the trip, you will depart South Africa on March 29th  and arrive in the United States on March 30th. 

*Please note: The cost is based on our blocked seating rate with the airlines.  Volunteers must register withair by December 20, 2019  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 December 20, 2019, 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 include in the "I'm traveling with:" field on the registration form any notes for Heart forAfrica.


The costs of the trips include lodging, meals, supplies, ground transportation, administrative fees and airfare (if you have elected for Heart forAfrica 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.
