What will it involve:
The trip is an incredible opportunity to serve in an Open Doors supported Children’s Centre. Many of the children have experienced trauma and pain as a result of a brutal civil war. Rebel soldiers have targeted Christian leaders who refuse to support their cause, and many of the children have lost family members because of violence. The centre is an amazing place where children get a chance to learn and study, as well as have fun and become part of a bigger family.

A typical day volunteering at the centre will involve morning devotions with teachers, tutors or children, helping out with various classes (English, craft activities, swimming, sports, etc), hanging out and playing with the children, and times of Bible study and worship.
