Learn more about an expedition to Zambia:


Our expeditions are structured to provide a life-changing experience suitable for ages 8 to 85. An expedition to Zambia with us includes:

Personal Growth

Become better acquainted with the best version of YOU as you open your heart to the power of love through participation in daily “Knowing Love Works” personal development classes and activities.

Humanitarian Service

“A chance to play is a chance to heal” so come kick a soccer ball. Read a book to a child. Work on our farm. Have a heart-to-heart conversation. Serve with us and you will learn to see yourself and others deeply.

Cultural Exchange

Come experience drumming and dancing, local food and handmade crafts. Deepen your compassion for humanity as you sit in Zambian homes, walk Zambian streets, and realize we’re more alike than we are different.

What is knowing love works?

The Mothers Without Borders experience in Zambia is unique because it partners personal growth with humanitarian service.

We believe that the path to changing the world begins by looking within ourselves and living a life inspired by love rather than fear.

To accomplish this, we spend the first 90 minutes of the day as a team in meditation and training. This training is guided by the “Knowing Love Works” master class which has been licensed exclusively to Mothers Without Borders.

Experiencing the difficult reality of life in Zambia while on a team will allow you to go to a place of vulnerability in a way that will prepare your heart for real growth and change. Our highly trained team leaders & trainers lead with love and create a space for you to journey inside your heart and discover your best self.

"I think most people would agree with the statement that you gain much more from this experience than you give. I gave money, service, and time to the people of Zambia, but I gained an immeasurable amount of wisdom and love from the people."

"I knew I wouldn't be able to imagine what my experience would be like in Zambia, so I really never tried. After having seen things how they really are, I know that words can't even describe it; it must be experienced first hand. I learned more about love in two weeks than I have in my life until then."
