India Orphanage

 

India

Experience the beauty and diversity of the culture of India as you travel through its bustling cities and quiet, rural villages this summer.

 

Teen (ages 13-19)

Travel: After Boot Camp you bus to the Orlando International Airport to board a flight across the Atlantic Ocean and Northern Europe to Frankfurt, Germany. From Frankfurt, a connecting flight takes you to the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad via Delhi. You then bus four hours to the Teen Missions in India Bible, Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center, located in Vijayawada.

Ministry: Your first project will be to work at an orphanage, helping with existing projects that may include painting, putting up fences or landscaping. Enjoy spending time with the orphans and village children by playing games and singing songs with them.  The second phase of your project will be at the BMW facilities, where you will use your construction skills to help with the ongoing projects at this base. While assisting with the students’ outreach in local villages, you are certain to make friendships that will last a lifetime.

Adventure: After your project time you train from Vijayawada to Agra to see the world famous Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. Practice your bartering skills in the local markets of New Delhi as you spend some time shopping for India’s brightly colored saris, handmade brass items, leather goods, figurines of wood, marble and much more.

Dates: June 18 – August 6

Estimated Project Expense: $4790 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee

    1. Shea, We have not nailed down the 2017 trips yet. The teams will be posted this summer and you can register at that time. However, the registrations will not be processed until mid-September.

  1. Hello everyone! If you or your teen are signed up for the 2016 India team I have started a private Facebook page so the members and parents can get to know each other and keep each other updated before and during the summer (parents, at least.) Please find the page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/182062152151049/. You can request to join and then add immediate family members and close friends. Our daughter, Sarah, is excited about her second summer with TMI.

  2. I sent an email about something personal a few days ago but I haven’t received a reply. Is it because there are so many emails at once or is it because of the time difference? I live in England you see.

    1. Breanna, Right now it is closed to girls, but there is only one girl on the waiting list. Go ahead and register and start raising your support. There should be a cancellation and/or switch and you would probably still make India, but it may not be until the spring.

        1. Medomfo, Please put down four choices and we will put you on your highest available choice. If you want on the India waiting list, please indicate that in the comment section.

          1. Medomfo, We have not chosen the 2016 teams yet. Go ahead and register for another team and start raising support. You would be #2 on the waiting list, so you should still make India this summer, but it may not be until the spring.

    1. Liz, Right now it is full to girls, but some spots will open up due to cancellations, etc. If she is interested, have her go ahead and register and put down four choices. We will put her on another choice so that she can start raising support. If she indicates on the registration form that she would like to be on the “waiting list”, we will call her when there is an opening and she can switch. All funds would switch with her. She would be the first one on the waiting list, so she would get on India, but it may be in the spring – that is why it is important for her to start raising support.
