Why Consider a ZOE trip? 

ZOE equips children to overcome extreme poverty through participation in an innovative three-year empowerment program. You will see and experience how the ZOE model is changing lives of desperate children socially, economically, and spiritually. On a trip, you will visit with and learn from young people who are engaged in each stage of the ZOE 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. You will also learn a bit about the history and culture of Rwanda and shed a tear or two at the National Genocide Museum in the capital city of Kigali.

Dates:
September 18-26, 2019 (dates include air travel time)

Please join fellow St. Lukers as they experience how the ZOE model is changing the lives of the many empowerment groups that our church is currently partnering with. In January, 2016, we partnered with 84 children and teens in the Aganyamurava "Brave" Empowerment Group, who graduated from the program in December of 2018. Since that time, St. Luke's and members within the church have partnered with another 10 empowerment groups in Rwanda. While on our trip, we will visit and learn from these children, as well as children in all stages of the program.

Trip Cost: 

$1,250 for in-country costs (accommodation, transportation, meals, etc.
