Home > Church & Social Service Trips

We believe the greatest transformations happen when we work together—hand in hand with local communities on their prioritized projects. We have multi-faceted trips that are designed to address several previously identified community needs.

We welcome youth groups, church teams, nursing teams, student organizations, universities, etc. We tailor each trip to meet the educational needs and skills of the team members to provide an opportunity all those who sincerely want to serve others. This allows for a broader impact of the programs and more meaningful partnerships to all involved.

We also support multi-generational trips that are church-led or for social service. Our trips are family friendly. We do not have age limits for team members.  All have something to offer.

Our full-time dedicated FFP staff will make sure you have safe food, comfortable mission-style lodging, ample purified water, experienced in-country transportation, qualified translators and capable security. They prepare with the local community leaders before your arrival and ensure any agreed post-trip follow-up is completed.
