FOCUS:Unreached People Groups, Children’s Ministry, Community Outreach
The small mountainous country of Nepal is one of the most breathtaking places on earth. Home to Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain, Nepal literally sits on top of the world. It’s a backpacker’s paradise. Though Nepal is primarily Hindu and Buddhist, Christianity is on the rise. However, most of the population is still unreached with the Gospel. Women and children are still at risk of poverty and human-trafficking.
Less than 4% of people groups in Nepal have been reached with the Gospel. Our partner, TAMI Asia, joins with local churches to reach their neighbors through school and sports ministries, and skills training for women at risk of human trafficking. They’re a tangible example of the love of Jesus to those who have never known His message of Hope and Truth
Join the local body of Christ in reaching the unreached in Nepal. You’ll spend your summer in Kathmandu investing in kids through school and sports ministry and helping to provide skills training for women at risk of human trafficking. Be an example of the love of the Father by meeting the needs of women and children. Don’t miss an opportunity to live out the Gospel in a country that still lacks enough followers of Christ and resources to evangelize to their own nation.
Witness God moving through the ministries and people you serve. Rely on His strength to fuel your days and His voice to lead the way.

WHAT IF WE HAVE TO CANCEL THIS TRIP DUE TO COVID-19?
We have an experienced risk management team. They monitor political, health, weather, and other risks in the regions where we serve. We continue to confidently plan impactful trips and adjust when necessary. We won’t launch a trip that isn’t up to our standards of safety. In 2020, we canceled our international trips due to safety and travel restrictions with COVID-19 and gave options to our participants to join us domestically or defer to a later date. We currently feel confident launching this trip. If we have to cancel this trip, or you don’t feel comfortable going, the money you’ve raised can be applied to a different or future trip within the next calendar year.
You’ll create a profile and complete a questionnaire application and then schedule a phone interview with our team so we can get to know you better. After that, we’ll let you know when you’ve been accepted!
Step 2: Fundraise
Once you’ve confirmed your spot, we will pair you with an Admissions Advisor who will help you with planning, fundraising ideas, and all the logistical information you need to prepare.
Step 3: Train
You will spend the first few days of your trip at our campus in Georgia, training, worshiping and bonding with your teammates before you leave.
Step 4: Launch
You will fly out with your team from the Atlanta airport and begin your semester on mission.
Ever wonder if there’s more to your faith than what you’re experiencing? I can relate.
I understand how it feels to hear that whisper inside you that there’s got to be more to your faith than what you’re experiencing. That’s why I risked it all, quit my job, sold everything I owned and took off overseas to serve God and His people. I got a taste of the ‘more’ God had for me. 10+ years and 30+ countries later, my team and I now help other young people experience adventurous and purpose-filled moments with God like I had ...one semester at a time.
How We Support You
A large part of this journey is growing in your walk with Christ. We desire to model the way Jesus discipled his followers. Mentors, coaches, and fellow Racers will disciple you, while you serve, love, and disciple others.
You’ll spend the first few days of your trip at a training camp here at World Race headquarters in North Georgia.
You’ll get to experience raw Christian community as you travel, serve, and encourage each other. Once you officially join the Race, you will be invited to a private Facebook group to begin getting to know your squad.
We’ll provide coaching, video tutorials, scripts, and ideas for fundraising plus a free fundraising course and a blog so you can tell your story and accept donations. We also have structured deadlines to help you reach your goal.
Our commitment to risk management includes internal and external teams who constantly monitor and manage risk and create contingency plans as needed.
Our amazing Parent Ministry provides resources and communication so your parents feel supported and informed while you’re on the field.
