Come – 2018 Opportunities

Come and be a part of the transforming work happening in Africa!

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news." - Isaiah 52:7

Right now, many teams from across Australia and our other international countries are gearing up and preparing for their upcoming time in Africa. Each of these team members and individuals are taking this trip to see what God is doing through His Church in Africa, and will have the opportunity to meet and build relationships with Care Workers, children, caregivers and volunteers. Additionally, a group of individuals from Australia and other places went to Africa earlier this year, and have committed to living and serving there for 12 months.

Already now, teams and longer term volunteer plans are beginning to take shape for 2018. Maybe you have been wanting to visit Africa, but for some reason have not yet. Maybe God has just put Africa on your heart recently, and you would jump at the opportunity to go. Maybe you know God is calling you, but you are not sure what the next step to take is. Whatever your story is – come! Be a part of a team, or commit a year of your life.

Mission Trip – Short Term
2 Weeks
Dates: TBA

Whether you join a team made up from people around the world or gather your friends, co-workers, small group, or members of your church, we invite you to come on a short term team trip to Hands at Work in Africa for a two week experience that will be impacting and transformative as you come to know the orphaned and vulnerable children in the poorest of poor communities of Southern Africa.

Longer Term Volunteering
12 Months
Orientation: beginning in February

Volunteers from varied backgrounds and ages around the world comprise the Hands at Work team, which mobilises, equips and supports the local church across Africa to transform the lives of Africa’s most vulnerable children. We invite you to consider investing a year of your life on behalf of Africa’s most vulnerable by being part of this team impacting people in over 60 communities in 8 countries. Come with an open heart and be willing to learn and to serve in whatever way is needed. Hands at Work volunteers serve the long-term local workers as “scaffolding”: a temporary, but essential tool in building a structure and leaving it stronger than upon arrival.
