mathare valley, KENYA



Dates: June 21- July 3 

Age Limit: 16+ w/ guardian

Cost: $3250

With over one million people living in small tin shanties, this is one of the largest slums in the world. We’ve partnered with Missions of Hope, to bring hope to those who call this slum home.  Help bring hope by supporting our global partners as they care for over 20,000 children with nutritious meals, education, social services, evangelism to their families and more. You can also meet your sponsored child! *Dental professionals: see the Dental Micro Team details below!

turkana, KENYA



Dates: June 21- July 3

Age Limit: 16+ w/ guardian

Cost: $3250

In the northern deserts of Kenya live the Turkana–a tribal people that live off their animals and sleep on sand in huts made of palm branches. Join us for an incredibly unique experience as you serve the Turkana with nutrition, building homes for the poorest of families, and meeting your sponsored child in one of our partner schools.

pai, thailand



Dates: June 10- 21

Age Limit: 18+

Cost: $2800


On the Pai plateau in northern Thailand lives a remote Lisu tribe that has lived over 50 years without clean water. This has resulted in waterborne illnesses that have affected every aspect of village life–and you can be a part of getting water to this village! Other projects include evangelism and planting mango groves to provide sustainable income to this area otherwise reliant on drug trafficking for income. *Medical professionals: see the Medical Micro Team details below

Kae Noi, Thailand

ripple effect in thailand



Dates: June 10- 21

Age Limit: 16+ w/ guardian

Cost: $2800

The children of the Kae Noi Children’s Home have left a mark on the lives of everyone who has ever visited. In fact, the whole surrounding hillside Lisu village has been touched by hundreds of Eastsiders bringing hope over the years. Meet practical needs through projects like planting mango groves to provide sustainable income, programming in the local schools and gathering child sponsorship updates–all in the name of a God who loves them.

Laos



Dates: July 17- 31

Age Limit: 18+

Cost: $2800

Eastside is committed to engaging with the “unreached,” or, people groups that have never heard of Jesus. Our partners in Laos have identified hill tribes near the Chinese border that have rarely seen people from the west, let alone those that would bring a message of hope. If you have a pioneering spirit, come as we enter these village communities and serve in unique ways to win the hearts of those far from God.

Ecuador

Age Limit: 16+ w/ guardian


Cost $1900


Visit our ministry partners in El Recreo, San Vicente and San Jose, Ecuador. Help support the work of a new church plant in San Jose, help build a home for a family displaced by the 2016 earthquake in San Vicente and be a part of evangelistic outreach. If you’ve sponsored a child in Ecuador you will also be able to spend time with them.

Age Limit: 16+ w/ guardian

get information about joining a micro team

Teams of individuals with a specific professional skill set, traveling to a location to serve in that particular field (ie medical, dental, builders, etc). Micro teams will either travel completely independently or act independently within a larger team.

Are you a dental professional willing to use your skill set in Africa this summer? We are developing a dental team led by an Eastside dentist that will be traveling with our teams to serve in our two dental clinics in Nairobi. If this describes you, click “I’m interested in a Micro Team” above.

Thousands of children attend our partnering Missions of Hope schools in the Turkana region and the need for medical care is endless. This team will care for hundreds daily. If this describes you, click “I’m interested in a Micro Team” above.

On the coast of East Africa where the Indian ocean meets white sands is the village of Kilifi. Eastside partnered with Missions of Hope to build an outdoor science camp for the children of MOHI. This micro team will help develop camp curriculum focused on the sciences of astronomy, renewable energy, marine biology, and earth care. We are looking for teachers, instructors, and experts in these fields. If this describes you, click “I’m interested in a Micro Team” above.

The ancient Rohinga tribe live in the village of Kargi in the northern corner of Kenya near Ethiopia. Here, Eastside has a project supporting a school and will be sending a micro team of medical professionals to treat the community.
