How to Travel
You can travel with Matsiko Children International as an individual, by forming a team, or becoming and intern.
Travel as an individual
Join other individuals from across the US on a Service Trip to meet the needs of orphaned and at-risk children around the world. This is a great way for individuals who are not part of a group to be able to go and learn more about the work we do. Our office will always work to communicate and coordinate the details with you and the group. Teams are led by Matsiko’s outreach staff members and/or volunteer trip leaders. A typical trip will be 5-21 days long. You will have opportunities to visit the children of Matsiko past, present and future, to meet your sponsored child face to face, and to find out first-hand the life changing importance your sponsorship support plays in his/her life. Trips may provide opportunities to provide medical help, work on building projects, teach and play with the children, prepare the Matsiko children for their US tour, perform important sponsorship work, and so much more!
Form a service trip team
Matsiko Children International partners with various churches, schools and other groups to send teams to serve alongside our international staff. Matsiko can help you plan a trip for your group and coordinate the details according to your group’s dates, budget, and skills. Group trips can range in length from 5-21 days. Setting up an outreach with Matsiko will give your group the opportunity to work hard in the areas of child sponsorship, hygiene, and food and clothing distribution. There are also opportunities to run school or sports camps, tutor children, dig wells and help with building projects. Holding true to Matsiko’s model, your group will have daily exposure to the reality of at-risk and orphaned children who live outside of the Western world.
Become an intern
International internships are geared towards college students and young professionals who can serve with Matisko partners overseas for a minimum of one month during the summer. We also have openings for US Interns to tour with the Matsiko World Orphan Choir. These interns are an extremely valuable part of our touring team, and opportunities to travel with the choir range from one month to an entire year.
