Virtual Trips offer a unique opportunity allowing you to “travel” to communities in Africa and India to connect directly with the youth in Zoe Empowers program.
Via Zoom video calls, you will meet Zoe children to hear their stories, offer encouragement, and ask questions. The children may also ask questions of you!
How long is a Virtual Trip?
Virtual trips are offered in the morning and last 90-minutes with the option for one-day or two day trips.
One day trips virtually travel to a single country and provides a wonderful educational experience. Two day trips focus on two different countries (such as Rwanda and Kenya) and allows more time for questions and reflection.
This is an especially powerful opportunity for a church, Sunday school class, or even for your group of friends! If the participants on your end are currently an empowerment group partner, we will connect you with the specific young people you support.
We will work with you to find dates and create a customized experience for you. Churches/groups that are not partnered with a Zoe group are also welcome to set up a virtual trip, or to join a trip already scheduled.
If you partner financially with a Zoe empowerment group, we can connect you with the children you support. If you are not currently a Zoe Empowers partner, you are welcome to join any existing trip.
Sample virtual trip schedule:
- Brief intro to Zoe Empowers
- Meet the country program manager
- Live-stream with young participants in the community and listen as they share their stories. There will be time to ask questions and express how proud you are of them.
