About the Mission:
The Zambia 2017 Youth Exposure Tour is a three-week study/exposure experience in Zambia , in August 2017, for participants in Grade 10 to first year post-secondary. The focus of this trip will be education with an emphasis on the social, economic, cultural and religious realities in Zambia. Participants will visit and interact with congregations of the United Church of Zambia and with students from Racecourse Community School. They will visit the hospital, various health clinics and meet with community leaders to learn about the challenges of illnesses, such as HIV. Participants will learn about the economic and environmental impact of copper mining in the region.
This project is the first joint venture between the Calgary Presbytery congregations of Symons Valley United Church, St. Thomas United Church, St. Andrew's United Church, and Deer Park United Church.
