The various options...
Mission Direct can bring your CSR plans to life and provide a team-bonding experience like no other. We offer a profound benefit for your individual staff - individually and as a team, your organisation and a community living in desperately vulnerable circumstances.
Church and pastoral Groups
Whether you’re bringing a connect group, intern group, staff team or just a selection from your church, everyone involved can expect to be changed and challenged by the trip. These trips have shown that an experience like this strengthens and develops faith, provides encouragement and enables volunteers to connect with Jesus in a new and life-changing way. Going as a church is a great way of putting the Word into action and serving the needy.
The teenage years are often when we settle upon what matters in life, shaping our outlook, our faith and our career choices. Alleviating poverty in a personal, practical way can provide perspective at a crucial time in life. It is simple for Youth to join us - either as an entire group, or incorporated into an existing team. Our Moldova missions offer exclusive youth trips and have proven to be the most popular of our destinations for this age group.
These trips will motivate and empower children like nothing else; they will be changed, but the impact that they have on the communities they go into and families they meet will be profound. Many of the school groups that have been on an overseas volunteering trip with us go on to run fundraisers as school community events for the projects they have encountered, bringing together the community and children for really great causes.
Go as a family
A Mission Direct trip is the chance to really discover what life is like for millions of people around the world and how we can all make a difference. There’s no better lesson for your children to learn and it’s not one they will easily learn in school. These experiences bond children and parents/guardians in a way that nothing else could, providing opportunity for quality time together without the pressures of everyday life - it will be a trip you’ll never forget or regret.
As well as our specialist trips we can create or incorporate groups into existing teams. It’s a great opportunity to share your skills and knowledge to help these needy communities to become self-sustainable. As examples, we have had teams share their skills in needlework, construction, project management, sports coaching, hairdressing and business advice in finance and entrepreneurship. Whatever your skill or passion, we can give you the opportunity to share it with marginalised communities whose gratitude will change you forever.
