Field Teams

Field Teams have reached capacity for 2017.

*We are now accepting applications for opportunities in 2018 & 2019.*

 

We’re excited to provide an opportunity for your group to serve through Convoy of Hope Field Teams. Team members serve people around the world through projects connected to our children’s feeding and agriculture programs as part of Convoy of Hope’s driving passion to feed the world.

These opportunities connect team members with longer-term goals to impact a child, family, community, and ultimately a culture by providing hope and help to those in need.

Projects

Projects

Teams come alongside staff at our program locations and tackle construction, agriculture and other projects. We work closely with our in-country team to determine the specific projects your team will take part in and will communicate that to you 60 days prior to your trip.

Each team should bring funds that will go towards your assigned project/s. The funds will be used for purchase of materials, transportation, payment to local workers, project design (e.g. architectural expenses, set-up, etc.).
