We will continue to build relationships with the 165 children at our first CarePoint in Kombolcha, as well as the new Grace Baptist CarePoint! We want the kids to know they are cared for and loved not only by us, but by God. Over 5 days we will shower the children with love by spending time with them, playing games, and more. On our last day we will have a traditional feast with the children and staff. While in the captial city of Addis Ababa, the team will get to experience some of the culture and get a chance to shop at local markets.
We ask that all team members travel together departing from Washington Dulles on the 9th. We will arrive in Addis Ababa and spend the night. The next day we take the journey to Kombolcha by plane. You will be able to see the high and low lands of Ethiopia on the drive back to the capital after our time in Kombolcha. You will need to plan on departing Addis Ababa on the 19th evening, arriving back in DC on the 20th. We have made exceptions for those who might have to leave out the night of the 18th, but please do let us know if you plan to do so.
You do NOT have to be a child sponsor to go on this trip. However, all sponsors are invited and encouraged to meet their sponsor child.
