Preparing For The Trip

Our 10 day or 2 week trips to Kenya are not construction trips. We go to build relationships, learn and to share love with others; trip mates and Kenyans.

1

Pre-trip meetings are held to plan our specific activities and to learn about Kenyan culture, how to pack, what to pack, and show you what to expect.

​An extensive trip travel guide to walk you through the process both here at home to prepare to go and once we get there - what to expect.

After the Trip

2

One follow up meeting after the trip to see how you are adjusting back at home is required. Sometimes the trip home is the hardest. After seeing things you have never seen and not having a lot of people around you that have experienced it either, we have one mandatory follow up call/meeting to see how you are adjusting and Carrie is always available.
