Purpose of the Journey

The purpose of this journey is to gain insights into the realities of life for our poorest neighbours in both village and urban contexts as well as to witness the work of various organisations meeting the needs of people in the communities we visit.  The journey will include opportunities to visit orphanages, schools, hospitals, health clinics and training centres as well as briefings with key personnel delivering a range of projects and programs.  A core element of the journey will be to travel to a very remote and isolated village to engage with local people to experience life as they live it.

Contact us  for more information about this and other immersion programs.
