Life-Changing Experience

Become better acquainted with the best version of YOU as you open your heart to the power of love.

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.

"To go out each day and hug, hold, and listen to so many people is worth every penny. I was able to see firsthand how happiness comes from loving the people around you, not from what you have."

"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."
