One of our goals at Acts 2 Collective is to invite people to visit the communities we work in. During these trips, we seek to continuously develop relationships with locals, identify any needs as they change through time, and see the impact of our already existing projects. Our work varies in different locations because projects are based on the most immediate needs identified by locals. The long-term goal is to walk alongside local leaders as they seek to holistically develop their community.
Our trips to Ghana serve two purposes. First, they serve as exposure trips for people to witness the realities of the developing world and to experience the beautiful African culture. The second is as a vision trip for our organization; we visit the communities we work in and continue to build relationships with the local people. Group sizes vary, but always include a mixture of individuals – some seasoned travelers, others going for the first time. Group members might be basketball players, family members, nonprofit partners, donors, church members, individuals considering adoption, or anyone interested in getting involved in the lives of those we serve in Africa.
Trips to Ghana typically follow this routine: in Asikuma, we spend the majority of our time visiting with the children at the Kingdom Cares mission center and community school. We travel to the village of Tsipasi, where The Move Project built a water well and is in the process of building a school. Time is spent visiting with the community and checking up on how the projects are doing.
In Cape Coast, we focus our work on building up the local ministry, Hoops Care International, which uses the platform of basketball to reach the youth in the community with the Gospel. They are also actively involved in serving their community through outreach projects. Trip itineraries may also include other locations within Ghana as God continues to open doors for where we work.
Every year, we take several trips to Ghana, and Acts 2 Collective would like to invite you to join us. The total cost of the trip is between $2,750.00 – $3,000.00. This covers airfare, food, lodging, transportation, and outreach. All funds raised through Acts 2 Collective are tax deductible.

“It may take place in a foreign land or it may take place in your backyard, but I believe that we were each created to change the world for someone. To serve someone. To love someone the way Christ first loved us, to spread His light. This is the dream, and it is possible.” -Katie J. Davis.
