Description

Ghana is home to Lake Volta, the world?s largest man-made reservoir and is home to nearly 20,000 children enduring brutal conditions and working as fishermen slaves, Thankfully, many of these children are being rescued. When they are, our partners in Ghana help provide safe housing, schooling, and restoration counseling. They also offer preventative education and job training for the local community so as stop this issue before it starts. As a volunteer team, you will help support our partners efforts by helping in the school, with sports activities, reading & homework, as well as service through outreach. Teams will interact with people of all ages and backgrounds, and share the love of Jesus Christ in word and in action. In addition to this scheduled trip, teams can also be organized specifically for your church or for individual families. Training will involve 3 mandatory days prior to departure. Once in-country, each day will begin with devotional and end with a team debrief. You will sleep safely, eat standard meals, and meet amazing people as you witness God's handiwork already being done. The goal of this trip is to remain flexible to what God would like to do in you and through you as a team. The approximate cost of this trip is $3200pp for the 10 day trip and can vary slightly depending on flight costs. This cost also includes training materials, training space, team building, funds tracking, meals, in-country transportation, lodging, ministry opportunities, and a local ministry donation. We require a $200 deposit at the time of application and it will go towards your trip. Set team dates will have a certified Faith Journeys leader and for customized trips, we will equip the team leader that you choose or if you prefer we can also lead the team for you for a nominal fee divided amongst the team.
