Immerse yourself in a program that will quite simply change lives.

Sunday 17th June to Saturday 23rd june 2018

From the moment you arrive in Bangkok to the time you leave, you will experience Thailand like you have never seen before. You will spend time getting your hands dirty in the Slums of Bangkok as we work with the community to provide new housing to one disadvantaged family. From there we will head to one of the Hands Across the Water homes where we will continue our hard work whilst spending time with some remarkable leaders and children, and there will be plenty of discussion time throughout the week as we explore the learnings as a group. There's a bit of everything so be prepared to do some physical work but also mental work as we take you on a leadership journey that will benefit not only you as an individual but those around you when you return home. 

Please note, the itinerary is subject to change. The final program will be developed closer to departure and is built around the needs of the homes.
