“You have never really lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” —Mother Teresa
Join us in January or February 2018 as we make a trip to South Africa to provide much needed services and supplies for our Zulu friends.
On your trip with THTG:
You will travel with the staff members to deliver food to the people who are on the monthly food distribution list. This will take a couple of days due to the distance between homes. You will meet the people that are being supported by THTG. This will also be the time to distribute extra items that have been purchased or donated, such as blankets, mattresses, toiletries and clothes.
You will visit a local school and daycare center. The school age children learn English now and love to hear our American accents. Plan to teach them something about our American culture! You may also visit a local hospital.
You will hand out t-shirts to the local children and adults. We encourage you to ask sports teams, horse shows, gyms, and other organizations and companies for any extra t-shirts they may have in their inventory. The Zulu people appreciate any new or used clothing and shoes.
Other activities might include home building, working with a traveling dentist or optometrist, garden construction, and other much needed help.
- Once in Durban, two staff members will meet you at the airport. A staff member will always be present in the vehicle and on every trip.
- First night in SA, you will stay at a hotel in Durban. Dinner and breakfast will be provided. This will be a good time to get a good night of sleep after the long plane ride.
- From Durban, you will travel 1.5 hours to the town of Eshowe. In Eshowe, you will be staying at the B&B Inn Zululand Guest Lodge. Each room has an ensuite bathroom with shower and features a private patio where you can enjoy the tranquility of the indigenous garden. Breakfast is provided by InnZululand and the other meals will be provided by THTG.
While in beautiful South Africa, you will also be able to explore other elements of the country.
You will be able to visit several of the local historical sights and learn about the Zulu culture. You’ll spend a day at Shakaland Zulu cultural village, billed as “the greatest Zulu experience in Africa”. You may also stay one night in a beehive hut that is equipped with modern comforts. You will learn Zulu customs and try energetic Zulu dancing.
You will also be able to spend two days and nights at a game reserve near Durban.
