Help Us Transform Lives June 4 - 15, 2014

The trip is full, see you in June!

Women’s Circle of Caring has a special relationship with several communities in the Maasai land. From June 4-15, 2014 we’ll go back to visit them, loving on the women and children who warmly welcomed us last year. We learn so much from these gentle people as we help them meet basic needs and work to improve the health of the children and the women.

After fellowshipping with the women and ministering to the children through VBS-like activities, we’ll explore more of Africa with a safari adventure. You will take this journey with other women from all over the country. What an incredible opportunity to be blessed and be a blessing. I look forward to having you come with us!

Travel

This trip begins in Washington DC Dulles Airport (IAD). Expenses to and from Dulles Airport are not included in the price of the trip. Please book airfare which allows you to meet the rest of the team several hours before your departure for a short orientation.

Accommodations 

  • While in Nairobi, the group will stay at a guest home that supports health clinics in the area. All meals are provided at the guest home.
  • While working with the projects, we will stay at a guest house in the nearest town. The rooms are clean and simple, but you will have all the amenities you could need.
  • For a true safari experience in the Maasai Mara National Game Reserve, we will stay at a resort-like tent camp. Each tent features a bed, bathroom, and electricity. This area boasts a higher wildlife-to-area ratio than any of Kenya's national parks, so it will be an experience you won't soon forget!
