Cost Details

The total cost of the trip is approximately $2500.  Here’s how that cost breaks down:

Airfare $1400
Ground fees $1100

Ground fees include all transportation, lodging, meals, activities, and translators.  There are no other core costs to the trip.  However there are incidental costs that you should consider:

  • Gifts for the families whose homes we visit ($30-$40)
  • “On the spot” donations
  • Gifts and souvenirs
