Following the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010, Haiti received an outpouring of support from people just like you who wanted to do whatever they could to help this country find its feet again. Now, much of the rubble has been cleared up, the tent cities are disappearing, and life has mostly gone back to normal for Haitians. But normal life to a Haitian looks very different from normal life for you and me...

Haiti was the poorest country in the western hemisphere before the earthquake, which means that earthquake aside, Haitians have been subject to corrupt government, unstable infrastructure (it’s the only country in the western hemisphere that does not have a sewer system), abject poverty, and lack of education for years. Many Haitians grow up in a world where their income is $2/day (World Bank 2012); 24.7% live in extreme poverty on less than US $1.25 per day (UNDP 2013). Haiti’s literacy rate is 61% – 64% for males and 57% for females (CIA Factbook Nov 2015). The average literacy rate for Latin American and Caribbean developing countries is 92%. (World Bank 2015). They will likely lose a baby in childbirth or know someone who already has. An estimated 1 in 285 births will result in a woman’s death, a ratio about 16 times higher than in the United States (Partners in Health 2014). Their view of hope is often very small...

You will be serving alongside a local church and ministry that is reaching out to all aspects of the community, from serving children through Vacation Bible School to helping families build or repair their homes to teaching adults good hygiene techniques to protect their families from disease. You’ll have the chance to serve alongside a group of people who are providing Haitians every opportunity to rise above the circumstances they were born into. This global experience will grow your faith and expand your understanding of the complexity of poverty.

Who can participate?

Our international trips are family-friendly, so, in most cases, kids can serve along with adults. We require 1 adult (18 years or older) for every 5 youth (17 years or younger). Contact Robin at 970-800-4000 for more location-specific age requirements. 

How do I book my international mission trip?

Contact our expert international mission trip advisor, Robin, at 970-800-4000.

Is airfare from North America included in the international mission trip price?

Prices do not include airfare from North America. However, in Peru, our price includes the airfare from Lima to Pucallpa and Cusco.

What is your policy on deposits, payments, and cancellations?

To reserve space on a trip, a non-refundable $100/person deposit is due when you register. Final payment is due 60 days before departure. If you cancel your registration prior to the final payment due date, your deposit is non-refundable but any additional payments you have made up until that time are refundable. Once you have paid your final balance and are within 60 days of your trip, all money is non-refundable. If Group International Mission Trips makes the decision to cancel your trip due to inclement weather or political unrest, we will reschedule you to a different trip or refund your fees.

Are all meals included in the cost?

Most meals are covered as part of your registration, except for free days if you're serving in Alaska or Puerto Rico. Please see the detailed itinerary of your international trip for any exceptions.

What types of meals are served?

Most meals will be provided by our ministry partners, who have been carefully trained to prepare safe and nutritious meals for our teams. You will get a taste of local food on all of our trips, and some locations will include American food as well.

How strenuous are the activities and service?

While some mission trips are more physically strenuous than others, most international trips will include at least four 8-hour service days in hot and humid environments. Your group can work at the level of physical exertion with which they’re comfortable.

Are tips included in the cost?

Your international mission trip covers gratuities for meals in restaurants that are included for the week. Gratuities for porters or housekeeping staff if you stay in a hotel during your trip are at your discretion. Airport porters who help with your bags will expect to be tipped $1-$2, and if you participate in a guided tour or fun activity on your free day, you may want to consider tipping your hired guide.

Are the trips safe?

The safety of your group is a top priority for us, as we’re sure it is for you. In all the areas we serve, we take extra precautions to make sure you or your group is as safe as possible. Guided by our local, experienced ministry staff partners, we avoid situations that are inherently dangerous. We’re also proactive by choosing lodging facilities and transportation that are safe and reliable. Our International Mission Trip Advisor is glad to answer further safety questions.

Can you put together a custom trip for my group?

Probably. If you’re looking for a trip specially designed for your group, we may be able to accommodate that for you. We have several trips a year that we custom design for groups, at a date and location that fits their needs. Pricing and availability vary, but if you’re interested in a custom week, contact Robin at ralm@groupmissiontrips.com, or call 1-970-800-4000 for more information.
