Pavilion Village Mission Trip

May 23 - June 1, 2018

Join us for the trip of a lifetime as we travel to Karatina, Kenya to serve the children of Pavilion Village Children's Home.  This amazing trip will include opportunities to complete small construction projects, train leaders, spend time with the children and end with a 3 day/2 night safari to one of East Africa's famous landmarks - Samburu National Park.

Ground costs of $2,100 include all lodging, transportation, meals, safari, and project costs.  Tips, Drinks (exluding water), and spending money are the additional responsibility of the individual.  

Airfare can be purchased through Pavilion or by the individual.  Contact Michael French (with Patria Ministries) for information on individual airfare.  Individuals outside the Birmingham, Alabama area should schedule flights that join the team in Atlanta, GA or Amsterdam.  Any flight booked by the individual should be approved by the trip coordinator prior to purchase.   Estimated airfare from BHM is $1,400 as of 2/21/18.
