Who We Are Working With

We will be working with an organization called Back2Back (B2B). B2B is committed to loving and caring for orphans and impoverished children. Rather than creating their own institutions, B2B partners with local organizatoins in communites supporting orphans and impowervished children. In our time there, we will be working in three projects:

  • A children’s home
  • A special needs children’s home
  • A home for impoverished teenage girls. 

We will be partnered with staff that will guide us through the trip as well as educate us on the model of B2B and help us debrief each night.


Passport Info

To apply or renew, go to You must have a passport that is valid at least six months after the return date of the trip.



Talk to your phyisician or visit for a full list of required/recommended vaccinations. They recommend Hepatitis A and Typhoid at the very least.



In early January, we will have a support letter writing party. We will also have our Spring talent show/auction and at least one more fundraiser. Between letters and fundraisers, your student’s trip should be fully covered.
