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 â€“ 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 â€“ $3,000.00. This covers airfare, food, lodging, transportation, and outreach. All funds raised through Acts 2 Collective are tax deductible.
