Breaking the Cycle

Mission trips are vital in supporting and encouraging our students and the community of Korah. Our trips tend to be fast-paced with a lot of focus on learning, loving and doing. We want you to connect with the community and the kids, build relationships, and understand how we can partner together to make a long-term impact. We are here for the long term to help educate and empower our students to break the cycle of poverty in Korah.

GOALS FOR MISSION TRIPS

  • For you to meet and fall in love with the kids, we serve.
  • For you to learn by engaging in the children and community.
  • For you to see our projects and the impact they have made firsthand.
  • For you to understand how complex working in these communities can be.
  • For you to be advocates of the country, people and children that you meet when
    you return home.
  • Each trip includes a concrete project and possible support for our medical team.
  • If you sponsor a child, we want you to meet that child (It’s not always possible,
    but we’ll make every effort to coordinate your schedule to make it happen).

What to expect: First and foremost be flexible and open to changes. “This is Africa” is a term you will come to know…it means things don’t always go the way we planned! In general, here’s what you can expect:

  • A VERY long flight to Addis Ababa
  • Most of the time, the team will travel from their home city to Addis Ababa together.
  • Travel by 12 passenger vans.
  • Days that begin around 9 am and end by sundown.
  • Evening team meetings and preparation activities.
  • Simple but comfortable accommodations in a guest house in Addis Ababa. 3-4person occupancy is standard; however, a limited number of double and single occupancy upgrades are available.
  • Simple, SAFE and substantial meals and bottled water.
  • Memories that will last a lifetime!

All participants should be in good physical and mental health. Minimum age is 12 years old, and a parent/guardian must accompany all children under 16.

*Twice a year OA organizes a Medical Brigade. The focus of this mission is to provide medical care to the OA kids, their families and the general community. The Brigade coordinates with local healthcare professionals to deliver both supplies and educational programs. Both Medically trained and non-medical volunteers are needed for this trip.
