Follow in the footsteps of mankind and travel further off the beaten path than you ever thought possible. Soak in the views of vast plateaus, pierced by soaring, jagged mountains. Climb to 1000-year-old rock-carved churches in the sky, and take in the paintings, still in their original color today. This place is like nothing else on Earth.
Create connections on the other side of the world
Camp in the community and connect with the children you have built a school for. Dance with the locals around a raging campfire. Share a delicious Ethiopian meal with your newfound friends. These are life-changing connections and experiences.
We don’t take you out of your comfort zone – we expand your comfort zone. Discover what it takes to create a new legacy for yourself. Learn just how easy it is make an incredible difference in this world.
Transform a community
You will be building a new school for the 707 children of Adi Senay, a community in Northern Ethiopia. These students learn in open-air classrooms that provide little protection from the sun, wind and rain. Others study in dark, enclosed rooms made of mud and rocks. There are only enough desks for a third of the children, and the rest spend long lessons sitting on the ground. With only enough space to cater up to Grade 4, older students must walk three kilometers every day to stay in school. Your support will mean we can build modern classrooms, a library, playground and proper latrines – allowing every child to reach their potential.
Here’s how it works:
Travel with us on October 9 – October 16, 2017.
