Mission Trips

Rewarding, Inspiring, Impactful -

Awaken Your Heart While Serving the Least of These



The Haven of Hope International ‘model of care’ focuses on taking an orphan care home from barely surviving to thriving. Our mission trips have been and continue to be an important part of our accomplishing this goal.

Teams have been visiting our flagship orphan care home-- Refugio de Esperanza in Santa Cruz, Bolivia for over a decade. Since 2019, visits have also been made to Refuge of Life in Peru and in 2022, trips to our African homes will open up. Our success in moving from surviving to thriving for each of the homes is because people just like you, took the time to visit them and share your gifts and talents.

We can help you plan a strategic and intentional trip that meets the needs of the children, furthers the vision for the orphan care home and change your travelers lives forever.

Haven of Hope International has been called to serve the unadopted children—the orphans—and to raise their standard of care. We need your help! Will you join us?

If you’re passionate about helping orphans, there is no better way to make an impact than by working hands-on with our orphan care partner homes, directors and the children they serve. Whether you’re looking to take a trip with your church group, as a family, or you’d like to join as an individual, we’d love to hear from you today.  Contact missions@havenofhopeintl.org

A recent mission trip to Refugio de Esperanza and Refuge of Life homes focused on Trauma Care training for the Refugio de Esperanza staff and Director training for the  Refuge of Life staff.


There are two types of trips to visit our partner homes--Mission/Vision/Leader trips and Service trips. Our trip leader, Tony LaManita, has been planning Mission trips for years and will help you plan yours.  His team will arrange your travel, in-country accommodations, and activities to make this as simple as possible for you, your group or your church. Trips are planned with the safety of the travelers in mind in terms of overall country restrictions.

If you have a team you would like to take, Tony can help you plan your trip. Each trip is planned to ensure that the team is strategically helping the home Director to  meet crucial needs that further their vision along with intentional team building, daily devotions, etc.

As there are so many details involved, it’s best to start planning your trip seven to nine months before departure. If you are interested in planning a trip, please compete the Mission Trip form.

October/November 2021

Construction Service Trips to Peru and Trinidad

Construction Trips are designed for those who like to build and put in a good day’s work. Accommodations are comfortable, but your daytime activities could prove to be physically challenging. Construction skills are helpful but not necessary – just a willingness to roll up your sleeves and help where needed. Construction trips for 2021 are planned for Refuge of Life in Peru and Operation Smile Home for Children in Trinidad in the October/November months. Check out our blogs for more information on the needs at both homes. If you are interested in going, please complete the Mission Trip form.

Mission/Vision Trips to Bolivia, Peru, Kenya, Tanzania

Mission Trips are designed for church and organization leaders to better understand the vision of Haven of Hope. They are generally shorter trips yet provide an impactful experience. Travelers see firsthand the incredible need, as well as the impact our programs are making. Meet the children, hear their stories, and see what they were rescued from while living on the streets. Meet the staff and learn more about our programs and the ways we’re expanding our reach. If you are interested in going, please complete the Mission Trip form.
