An ADRA Connections experience is a life-changing opportunity to travel to ADRA’s projects around the globe and experience first-hand the vitally important development work that ADRA does. 

You will be involved in a variety of ADRA’s projects, from training, monitoring photographic and story writing, to renovations, repairs, playground refurbishment or building, to farming, nutrition, sanitation and hygiene education, or micro-business skill support, to working with communities in disaster zones teaching them how to be prepared in a disaster or helping to rebuild after a disaster – there are a huge range of ways you can be involved in the work of ADRA!

ADRA is a trusted world-wide charitable organisation and we work with local communities to create long-lasting sustainable change. All Connections activities are about working in partnership with communities to make a difference that truly benefits the people we serve.

By being part of a Connections trip, you’ll have an opportunity to experience the everyday realities of local communities and help create positive change through your chosen activities.

Don’t just take our word for it, check out what previous adventurers had to say about their experience: the ADRA Connections Experience.

Due to COVID-19, we cannot set a specific date as it is an evolving situation and your safety and the safety of the communities you will be working alongside is our top priority. You are still able to contact ADRA and express your interest as well as fundraise in anticipation of a trip.
