Journey for a Lifetime

Ready to embark on a life-changing journey, to explore a world beyond, and to impact the lives of sick children and your own?

Let us show you the world beyond. It’s one thing to read or hear about it. It’s another to experience it firsthand.

LEARN about European history and current affairs. Discover authentic cultures, traditions, and their true way of life.

WITNESS the hardships and daily struggles faced by children with terminal illnesses or life-limiting conditions, who in many cases live in poverty with little or no support, and behold the courage and love of the mothers who are often left alone to fight for every minute of their child’s life.

EXPERIENCE the privilege, pride and happiness of granting humble wishes to sick children and discover valuable life lessons that can never be taught.

UNDERSTAND and appreciate the needs of others less fortunate and come away valuing what you have at home, inspired and ready to make a difference to your world.

Each Journey for a Lifetime trip is unforgettable, unique, and rich in adventure and attractions. In addition to being a compassionate volunteer you’ll meet extraordinary people, make friends across the world and have GREAT FUN.
