Take A Trip

We want to empower you to make a difference.

One way we do that is by providing you with the chance to serve in Ethiopia. We have partnered with many organizations on the ground, across many communities, in order to see children meet their full potential. We strive to connect our team members with children in need, one child at a time, resulting in lasting relationships.

We believe you will find that you receive just as much as those we are serving. We want to see you find your purpose, your passion, your joy. Join us.
