Volunteer Service Trip: Ethiopia

Volunteer Service Trip: Ethiopia

About This Campaign

Return to your origin with a visit to Ethiopia, commonly called the cradle of civilization. Biblically known as the land of Cush and Abyssinia, Ethiopia is the only country in Africa that was never colonized partly because of it’s impressive mountains and vast lowland deserts. This land of contrast is one of the poorest countries on the planet leaving almost half the population without access to safe drinking water. Be prepared for your own transformation as you construct wells in the Great Rift Valley with people who are materialistically poor but rich in spirit. The contrast is overwhelming for those open to a cultural adventure and simultaneously learning about the water crisis.

Trip Cost and Fees:
$1,600 + airfare
$50 visa (cash upon entry)

Dates:
October 20-29, 2017
Wine To Water

Campaign to Support Wine To Water

We're a small team based in Boone, NC, who believes ordinary people, in community, can make an extraordinary difference in the world.  This movement began in 2004 when our founder, Doc Hendley, while bartending in Raleigh, NC, learned about the world’s water crisis.  Once captured by the cause, Doc felt the need to do something about it.  So, he did. He did what he knew best…pour some wine, beer, and spirits, play some music, and have a great time with friends. When it was all said and done, a few thousand dollars was raised due to the generosity of the community.  With some money in hand, Doc soon found himself in Darfur, in the midst of a war, working to provide clean water to those who were in desperate need in desperate times.  Thus, Wine To Water was born.

    Robin, I am so touched by your decision to travel to Ethiopia with Wine to Water - your adventurous spirit, your selfless courage, and your enduring faith!! Even though I won't be in Boone to help you prepare and hear your stories in person upon your return, I'll be thinking of you and eagerly awaiting those moments when we can connect about your trip! Love, Susan
