SHORT TERM SERVICE TRIPS
If you would like the chance to understand the challenges and real opportunities of our world's least fortunate children, to play with them, help them, and live among them, then an ICN service trip is for you! You will have the chance to work with the Matsiko children and help us in our valuable sponsorship work while also exploring their beautiful homes.
We have opportunities for individuals to join a scheduled service trip, as well as for leaders to take a group from their church, school or organization and partner with us in one of the countries where we work. We also have opportunities for college students or young professionals to spend a summer gaining practical service or missions experience working alongside our international staff.
Throughout the year ICN, sends our directors and volunteers to the various countries in which we operate to check in on our programs and ensure things are running smoothly. We try to take advantage of these visits by sending a large team as often as possible because it allows us to accomplish so much more for our children and field workers. Many times our traveling volunteers have experience in the medical or engineering fields, which allows us to set up a medical clinic or drill wells to provide clean drinking water. Even people who feel they have little to offer in terms of great skills find themselves having the time of their life in taking child information, distributing food and clothing, or playing soccer with a group of thirty screaming children.
