NEW UPDATE!

February 15 till March 1, 2011.

Present details for the mission trip are as follows:

 

  • Team of 10-12 people maximum
  • 18+ years old to participate
  • CBM is asking teams to do their own airline booking. Some may choose to use points, and etc. We will help coordinate and facilitate this process as a team. We will all be flying into Hyderabad. For February, a good airline cost is up to $2500 roundtrip.
  • CBM COST is $1700/person - which includes $200 deposit, accommodations (staying in hotels), food (eating at hotel), transportation, domestic flight once in India (child labour ministry in northern India), departure tax, project costs (translator, activities, etc)
  • Additional costs to you will be an up-to-date passport, visa, police check, vaccinations, and etc.
  • Linda Naves, our Maritime CBM staff, will do an orientation with the team
  • There will be a project of some sort - our team make-up will partially define our project. Our major goal is to go to learn and build relationships.
  • The sooner we get our potential team dynamics mobilized, the greater our chance for an effective and vibrant experience.
  • Our partners are longing to meet us!

Qualifications & Requirements:

  • Your local church must be partnering in the CBM STEP India partnership. A commitment of at least $100/year is required from the church.
