One of the best ways to contribute is to share your time and talents.

Join the next Adopt-a-Village International medical, dental, or project tour, and help give a hand up to a community in need.

Who can participate?

Individuals 18 years and older may apply to join a relief expedition. Younger people may attend if accompanied by a parent or, in special cases, with appropriate release forms and insurance coverage.

We welcome people of all skill sets who have an enthusiasm for helping others. While our main focus is medical and construction relief work, the skills of expedition participants determine much of what gets done.
