2023 Rwanda Vision Trip

May 25, 2023

This registration reserves your spot on the Rwanda Vision Trip through the Conference's Office of Mission Engagement and Zoe Empowers. NOTEThere are only 10 spots available for this trip.

Join us for a Zoe trip to Rwanda to see how the Zoe model is empowering orphans and vulnerable children to move beyond charity. The Zoe Empowers Rwanda headquarters is located in Huye, a city about two hours from the Capital of Kigali. During the 9-day trip, you will visit with and learn from young people who are engaged in each stage of the Zoe Empowers program. You will have an opportunity to be a guest in their homes. You will see how the relationships they have with fellow group members are providing them with an extended family within their communities. You will witness firsthand how their group projects and businesses are helping them to thrive in the midst of adversity. Those who are Zoe Empowerment Partners will have the chance to meet and spend time with their empowerment group.

In addition to your time spent with the Zoe Empowers children, you will also have the opportunity to take part in a safari.

Dates: October 10-19, 2023
