The journey will include opportunities to visit church orphanages, kindergartens, schools, health clinics and training centres as well as briefings with key church personnel involved in delivering a range of services and programs.  A core element of the journey, the immersion experience, will be to spend some days living within a community to engage with local people in a village context to experience life as they live it.
