Building Brighter Futures for Children

Compassion Tour 2017

The Adventure of a Lifetime! Compassion Tour in South Africa!
June 9–17th, 2017

Helping kids in informal settlements in Africa! Riding elephants and chasing giraffes! Visiting Cape Town – one of the most beautiful cities in the world! This trip will change your life and the lives of the children that we serve. We want to invite corporate executives, businessmen and women, and philanthropists to get involved in meeting the needs of some of the poorest children in the world! We will work in Early Childhood Development (ECD) with orphans and little children in informal settlements outside of Johannesburg, South Africa from June 9 – 17, 2017. You will learn about the importance of ECD in the lives of little children and its long term impact on them and their future. We will also work with caregivers and visit their shacks. There will also be   opportunities to learn about human rights at the Hector Pieterson Memorial/Museum in Soweto, visit beautiful Cape Town, and ride African elephants (world’s largest land mammal). Please contact me if you need more information at Mark.Ottenweller@hopeww.org for more information and if you are unable to come this year you can donate to the work at www.hopewwafrica.org. Thanks for all of your help and concern for little children of Africa.
