If either you or your spouse is a physician looking for a unique bonding experience with your family, let Globe Aware help arrange a Medical Family Service Trip. We have been able to find communities in the programs where we work that desperately need the help of dentists, ophthalmologists and general practitioners. Note: We do NOT facilitate any sort of surgery. Your children can help in a variety of ways, from passing out tooth brushes, helping check vision charts, etc.
Globe Aware one-week community service projects abroad offer an exciting way to serve a needy community and expand your children’s world perspective all at once. All of our programs, except our Thailand program (which has a minimum age requirement of 16) are appropriate for any age. Not only will your son or daughter have a great time while serving others, they will learn about the real beauties and challenges of another culture. Freed from electronics and the day-to-day hustle and bustle, your family will learn the joy of working with locals as equals on projects which are important to them, learn how they cook, how they spend their free time and create memories for a lifetime. Children under the age of 17 get a 10% discount and the entire cost of the program and the airfare are tax deductible against your income. Surrounded by privilege, few get the opportunity to really appreciate what they have. Globe Aware Medical Family Service trips offer a unique and meaningful way to achieve this.
For your child’s next spring break, Thanksgiving break or Christmas holiday, consider giving the experience of a lifetime, one that will change the lives of others, theirs and your own.
