Participants will spend the majority of their week on Project Canaan. You will kick off your experience with a complete tour of Project Canaan: our 2500-acre fully operational farm and children’s home.
We plan to spend the week preparing for Christmas celebrations and continuing some traditions we have created over the years. You may be asked to decorate, wrap gifts, assist with the Christmas pageant, or lead/assist with a pre-planned activity. The team will also visit a local homestead to deliver food and clothing and encourage the family living there. One day will be spent at a rural church partner delivering and serving food and playing with the children they serve.
The Khutsala™ Artisan shop on Project Canaan will be open multiple times throughout the week, and you will be able to stock up on our beautiful Khutsala and Kufundza products. Our jewelry, Christmas ornaments, charcuterie boards, and many other home items are all handmade on site, providing employment for our neighboring communities, which allows them to in turn provide for their families (sometimes up to 7 people in each household). All profits are used to further our mission of self-sustainability and to provide care for our more than 370+ children living on Project Canaan. These make great gifts or souvenirs, and each purchase truly makes an impact!
You will have one day “off property” where you will visit a local game drive and have a chance to do some shopping at a local market.
