Who can go?
We need servants willing to have long days on your feet. You'll be living life on the Homes of Hope campus, helping with construction projects, and working with the women and children in their daily agenda and lessons.
Each participant needs to be age 18+ and will be asked to attend CCV's Starting Point class (if you haven't already been) and submit a full volunteer application with background check, references, and interview. This will be initiated after you have signed up for the trip and is not an "application" indicating whether you can attend or not. They are purely steps in the preparation process. Each team member will also be required to attend all pre-trip preparation meetings.
TEAM MEETINGS: The team will be required to meet for minimum three team meetings for training- January 20, 11:30am-2:00pm, February 3, 11:30am-2:00pm, February 17, 11:30am-2:00pm. Team may meet for one or two additional meetings for more specific trip planning.
$2,200 per person includes plane tickets, lodging, insurance, and food while at Homes of Hope. This does not cover any additional costs for passports, shots, or meals during travel time.
$200 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of registration. If a cancellation is made after airline tickets have been purchased you will also be responsible for the cost of the airline ticket.
Miscellaneous Costs to expect during your stay: Grocery shopping and taxi rides and souvenir shopping.
Food and Lodging:
The Homes of Hope campus has a guesthouse that accommodates our team. There is a common area and common kitchen.
A Valid passport is required for all participants. Passport cannot expire within 6 months of the trip's return date and cannot be damaged in any way. Please visit travel.state.gov for up to date information and to apply or renew.
There are no shot requirements, but an updated Tetanus shot is Strongly Recommended for ALL trips. Please visit cdc.gov/travel for up to date recommendations for Fiji. Note: Fiji is a country on the Zika Virus list. If you are pregnant or in a family planning stage of your life, please consult your primary doctor before committing for this trip.
We absolutely encourage fundraising. Very few people pay for the trip on their own. Number 1 way is to share this opportunity with your friends and family and ask them to participate with you by helping you get there!
