Sponsorship provides children with the basic necessities to live each day, but creating meaningful relationships with our partners and sponsors through trips is the difference between surviving and thriving.
First, you should know that anyone can go on a trip. Our youngest trip member has been 6 months old and our oldest in her 70s. We have many different kinds of teams and people that join us on our trips and age does not limit you! We know the Kingdom of God is multigenerational and multicultural. We’ve even had whole families that go on trips together! A trip is a chance to visit our partners and our sponsor kids. You get to spend time serving alongside friends that will become more like family by the time you leave. Whether you’re looking to visit your GO Sponsored Child, help out with a GO Project, or simply experience what God is up to in another part of the world, taking part in a GO Trip will grow your heart, broaden your perspective, and change your life!
