Take A Trip
TRAVEL WITH FILTER OF HOPE

If you are looking for the adventure of a lifetime consider traveling with Filter of Hope to distribute our life changing water filters. Our trips are all inclusive and are customized to your groups' goals, team members and experience level. You'll not only get to work on the front lines with families living in abject poverty in third world countries, but you will be doing something that will totally change their lives.

WHAT WE DO

The primary mission of a Filter of Hope trip is to distribute our life changing water filters, but we do much more than that. We'll design a trip around your specific goals to provide you with the greatest experience of your life. We will visit with families in their homes to train and install our filters. Not only do we give the gift of clean water, we train the family members in basic hygiene care.

In addition to water filter distribution, we offer a range of ministry experiences you can chose from. You will work with a Filter of Hope staff member to design your daily activities. Here is a sample of the things you can do:
  • Water Filter Distribution
  • Children's Ministry Activities
  • Helping in local orphanages
  • Youth Ministry Events
  • Mens Ministry Events
  • Ladies Ministry Events
  • Helping lead a "Character Counts" program in local schools
  • Movie Nights (we show movies in communities where people have never seen a movie before, then share our stories with them during a break)
  • Job Training and coaching
  • Construction Projects (smaller projects)
  • Child Sponsorship Program
  • Feeding programs
  • Assisting local pastors with their church
  • ANYTHING ELSE YOU CAN THINK OF, WE WILL TRY TO CREATE

WHERE WE GO

Filter of Hope leads teams to Haiti, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. In each of these countries we have partners on the ground in various areas that we work with. We offer multiple multiple areas to serve based on the experience of your group and your goals. We work through a local network of pastors who insure follow up and quality controls in the ares we distribute filters. You can be assured that there is a follow up process in place when we return from your trip.

HOW MUCH DO THE TRIPS COST

Each trip is priced per person, per day and will depend on the country you select and the number of days. A typical 6 day trip will cost between $650 and $750 per person, not including airfare.

WHAT IS INCLUDED

Our trips are "all inclusive," meaning we provide all your food, lodging, in-country transportation, translators and everything you will need for a great week.

Our lodging will be either in mission homes, hotels, or on a mission compound, depending on where you are serving. Typical rooms sleep 2-4 people. Each room has its own bathroom and includes linens, fans, and air conditioning in some cases, depending on where you are staying and the need.

We will provide you with the hotel website or pictures of the homes you will be staying in. In many cases, lodging is resort style accommodations right on the beach and you will be amazed that you are actually staying here on a missions trip.

We insure your meals will the be the highest quality available. We work diligently to insure not only that your food is safe but are the best tasting meals you will find. We use selected restaurants and in home cooks to provide you with excellent meals throughout your trip.

When we survey teams, they consistently say they food was excellent and much better than they anticipated by going to a third world country.

Filter of Hope has a great team of translators who work with us throughout the year. You will find them to be a great addition to your team. We will provide a FoH staff member for your team from the time you arrive until your departure. You will never be left alone on your trip without access to a staff member. In most cases, staff members are staying in the hotel or home with your team and are available for your needs at all times.

WHEN ARE OUR TRIPS

Filter of Hope offers general trips throughout the year that you can be involved in, as well as the ability to schedule your own group trip. If you have a group of at least 6 people, we can schedule a trip exclusively for you. Please refer to our "Trip Schedule" to see the general trips planned for this year, with destinations and costs for each.

If you have a group of your own, we will accept children as young as 8 if they are accompanied by a parent. We've also had team members in their 70's who have participated with us.
