2011 Volunteer Trips to Zimbabwe with The Nyadire Connection

Who: Anyone interested in joining us!

When: Late July, early August, October 2011 (approx. 2.5 weeks)

Where: Nyadire Mission is a rural mission that has a hospital, school, orphanage, nursing school, teachers college, church, and farm. It is located in the NE part of Zimbabwe. We have been taking large group teams since 2006 but have been visiting Nyadire since 2002. Nyadire is a safe, secure community that loves our visitation.

What: We tailor what we do on our trips depending on the skills of the participants. However, we generally work with orphans, volunteer at the hospital, work with pastors in the area, work with teachers, and, on the August trip, do a Vacation Bible school. We are normally able to find appropriate activities for people with special skills (construction, medicine, education, theology, etc.).

We have had people develop a recycling program, teach classes, visit rural schools, work with orphans, and many other activities. We purposefully work only on projects that Nyadire identifies as important. We are very focused on developing relationships and volunteers are encouraged to visit neighbors, make friends, and get to know the community.

Why: To serve God, to help others, to learn from Zimbabweans, and to develop spiritually.

Daily life: Volunteers stay in clean brick houses with beds, bathrooms, occasional running water, spotty electricity, and new friends! Teams eat together in a main dining room and the food is prepared by nurses from the hospital who care for us during our stay. We have daily devotions as a group. During the day, however, larger teams will split into smaller groups doing different projects.

Preparation: We generally require monthly team training sessions, but are developing new ways to do this for people who are not from the Pittsburgh area. Immunizations are required and typically offered by County health clinics. Team members are also required to take anti-malarial medication.

How much? Expect airfare cost to range from $1500-$2200 depending on the season. Land costs are between $500-700 per person and include lodging, transportation, food, and other fees. An optional excursion to a safari park is extra.
