REQUIREMENTS AND GUIDELINES FOR VOLUNTEER TEAMS
We cannot fulfill our vision without your help. Volunteer teams multiply our efforts in extending God’s Kingdom more rapidly. We desire to provide an opportunity for you, your church and your organization to achieve your destiny in God. One way we can accomplish this is through giving you an opportunity to be part of God’s redemptive plan in Zambia. A short-term visit is generally 2-3 weeks.
Contact us at [email protected] if you would like to send a team. We look forward, in partnership with you, to start planning a life changing experience.
PLANNING YOUR TRIP
FINANCES & BUDGETING
Many of our visitors fly to Lusaka and take the bus from there to Mongu. Your bus tickets to and from Mongu will cost approximately $35 (R240) per person. You may also be charged for your luggage, but this should not exceed $5 (R40) per person. You will be responsible to book your own flights. It is advisable to arrive in Lusaka to avoid an over night stay in the city. The last bus leaves for Mongu around 1pm each day. However, should you require accommodation in Lusaka, we would advise you to stay at the Flying Missions Guest House who charge you about $20 (R140) per night. You can book through their website www.flyingmission.org/fmzguesthouse.php The Holiday Inn in Lusaka will be a more expensive option. Your transport within Lusaka from the airport to the guesthouse, or bus station will be around $35 (R240) for four people. You can also make transport arrangements with the Flying Mission Guest House.
Many of our visitors are very generous, both financially and through gifts and supplies they donate to the Zambia Project. We require that all donations of supplies, as well as cash donations, be given directly to the full-time leadership team for distribution to ensure that they are expended in keeping with the ministry’s current priorities and needs. If you wish to designate a particular area to benefit from your contribution, we will certainly honor your intention as much as possible.
We trust that we will have a great time serving together!
