Visit Selamta – Vision Trips and Service Trips

2015 Trip Schedule Coming Soon! – The people, the coffee and the overall experience will change your life and enrich the lives of others.


Vision Trips

We understand the value in visiting a place to understand the culture, the people and the program. We welcome you to join us on a Vision Trip to Selamta Family Project in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. During your 1-2 week stay, you will have the chance to meet and work alongside our families and staff. You will stay at our Selamta Inn to understand more about the community and environment in which we serve. You will visit or volunteer at one of our partner organizations serving the most vulnerable in Addis to gain a better understanding of why Selamta’s model is unique and extraordinary. You will also participate in cultural experiences that provide a glimpse into the rich history and culture of Ethiopia. At the end of your trip, you will have time to debrief with the group and your trip leader about your experience, observations and suggestions you have to better serve Selamta in the future. We invite you to visit Ethiopia and join the Selamta Family!

Service Trips

Each Service Trip is unique with a  designated project that we accomplish together. One year we built a soccer field; another year, we painted the exterior of the homes. You will work for one to two weeks in a small team to create enrichment opportunities for our families along with home and garden improvement projects with our families and staff. Our Summer Enrichment Camps provide Selamta youth with experiences around artistic expressions, sports themes, academic skills, vocational/trade and basic life skills. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of our families, we invite you to join us on a service trip.
  Both Vision and Service Trips are led by Selamta Staff and can accommodate up to 7 volunteers.
