ADRA Connections is ADRA’s short-term service program. A trip with ADRA Connections takes volunteers into the field to put compassion into action and make an impact for communities in need, with no experience necessary. Through ADRA Connections, volunteers can take that life-changing adventure, find their purpose in service, create life-long friendships, and see faith in a new, transformative way.
Worried About Logistics? Don’t Be
ADRA Connections has the planning covered. Once you book your trip, we take care of lodging, in-country transport, meals, and other details.

The truth is, no two days are alike. That’s what makes it fun! You can expect, however, every day to start with devotions and an early breakfast, followed by a brief team meeting to discuss the activities and work for the day. Lunch and dinner will also be provided. After lunchtime, there’s usually time to relax before going back to the work site. After dinner, there’s time for socializing and worship. A few of the days spent in country will include excursions to nearby cultural attractions.
The goal of every CNX trip is to provide direct support to a community project being implemented by the ADRA office in that country. ADRA Connections upholds ADRA International’s value to deliver international relief and development assistance to individuals in more than 100 countries—regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, or religious association. For this reason, we do not host evangelism events, sessions, or arrange to give bible studies to members of the communities in which we work. Instead, we demonstrate God’s love and compassion by creating empowering partnerships, supporting local infrastructure, and promoting responsible action for people in poverty and distress.
When signing up you will be asked to pay a $250 non-refundable deposit to register for a trip. Any amount that has been fundraised through Pure Charity, can be refunded up until 30-days prior to the trip’s departure date. If you decide to cancel after the deadline, funds raised may only be applied towards a future trip. *Exceptions may be made if the trip is canceled by the team, whereupon refunds may be available.
Trip costs include in-country expenses such as food, fresh drinking water, lodging, transportation, cultural excursions and travel insurance. Costs also include project expenses such as material costs and skilled local support staff. Additionally, you’ll receive a fun swag bag with a water bottle, and more. Trip costs do not include airfare.
