Experience Eswatini July 2022

July 16, 2022 – July 26, 2022

CAMP CANAAN

We plan to host Camp Canaan with the children at Project Canaan! Adjustments and modifications will be made that allow for safe social distancing for kids, staff and trip participants. This trip will also include a celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the opening of the El Roi Baby Home. 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. The opportunity to serve in other capacities is available, however at this time, we are still determining what is best for all as we bring trips back to Project Canaan. We will be in close communication with all travelers and give frequent updates as we adapt our itinerary, so you are well prepared and informed. Learn about our COVID-19 Policy below. All travelers must comply with international travel restrictions and with the operational requirements mandated by Project Canaan.

Each participant will be encouraged to maintain a group mindset throughout your trip. We want to ensure that everyone has a great experience, and we make preparations based on what is best for the group. As Project Canaan grows, specifically our children’s campus, we must make modifications that are going to best serve those on and off the property, as well as provide consistency and structure for the schedules our staff has worked so diligently to put in place. We appreciate your understanding as we strive to improve your trip experience!  

KHUTSALA™ ARTISANS

The Khutsala™ Artisan shop on Project Canaan will be open multiple times throughout the week, so 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. All profits are used to further our mission of self-sustainability and to provide care for the 300+ children living on Project Canaan. These make great gifts or souvenirs, and each purchase truly makes an impact!
