At Chalice, it is our joy to provide you with an opportunity to volunteer and experience life at our Sponsor Sites. Both you and those you meet will be enriched by a life changing exchange! Each trip is different in nature and experience. The common objectives are:

* Service projects supporting the work of Chalice's partners.

* Building relationships with our partners, the families we serve, and other Canadians with a heart for service.

* Witnessing the impact of sponsorship and sharing the opportunity of sponsorship with others.

* Collectively raising financial support for the communities we visit.

* Forming Chalice Champions to help us in our mission of "Sharing Christ with All in Need".

“It’s the most wonderful holistic experience, because you’re learning from the people you are helping, from the staff at the site, and from the members on your team. You receive so much love and joy and always want to give more.”                                               - Virlana Shchuka, “For the Girls!” 2016 Kenya Mission

Medical Mission to Haiti

Chalice sponsored children at medical clinic in Haiti Mission Dates: November 2018 (2 weeks, dates to be confirmed)
Service: Provide patient care and practitioner training in areas of vision, dental, and general medicine.
Location: Terrier-Rouge and Grand-Bassin, Haiti

Sponsored Friends: If your sponsored child's code begins with NDS or NDG, we will be at their sponsor site!
Chalice has been working in Haiti since 1997 and currently operates in two areas of the country. This mission will bring us to one of these areas - our Haiti North Sponsor Site. Our partners at Haiti North are a local Non-Government Organization. The Haiti North Site impacts two communities: Terrier-Rouge and Grand-Bassin, both about halfway between Cap-Haitien and the Dominican Republic border. Each community has a local clinic, which is run by the parish, and they offer primary care services. There are no surgical or obstetrical services at these clinics. There are approximately 700 children sponsored through Chalice in each community, each receiving support in education, health and nutrition, as well as family development. Additional support (such as water filtration and a poultry cooperative) reaches beyond sponsored children and their families to impact others in the wider community. The team will provide clinical services alongside local health professionals both to learn from them as well as offer training, as appropriate.

Mission Dates: November 4-14, 2017

You can read about our mission here: www.ChaliceOnTour.blogspot.ca 

This November we travelled to our Fåtima Sponsor Site in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Chalice has been working in Bolivia since 2001 and with Fåtima Site since 2010. Our partner at this site is Our Lady of Fåtima Parish. Our mission team worked alongside our partners to support their work in a variety of capacities (the parish runs a nutrition program at a daycare aswell as other supports for the elderly and families in the community). We were also blessed to bring a dental team with us, enabling us to provide dental care and education in the community.

Solidarity Tour to Peru

Chalice - Travel with us to Peru to meet sponsored children

Location: Canete, Peru - a town 150 km south of Lima, just inland from the coast
Sponsored Friends: If your sponsor child/elderly friend's code begins with CAN or SEN

Mission to Ukraine

Chalice - Travel with us to Ukraine to meet sponsored children
Service:
In support of the Sponsor Sites’ Work (see below)
Location: Lviv and Ternopil, Ukraine
Dates: June 12-24, 2016

On this mission we had three service components. We trained Chalice staff and parent leaders in addictions support, so they could start small groups to empower those caught in addiction. We trained parent leaders and local health practitioners in first aid. We also supported two schools in their summer renovations.





For the Girls Mission, Kenya

Chalice Travel With Us to Kenya to meet sponsored children
Service: Increasing access to and awareness about reusable feminine hygiene products
Location: Asembo, Kenya
Dates: February 13-27, 2016

Many girls do not have access to safe, clean feminine hygiene products.  As a result, many girls do not attend school for the duration of their menstrual period, every single month, thereby missing approx. 3 months of school per year.  The result is often poor performance and/or dropping out of school.  Aside from this, some of the products currently used and education around feminine hygiene lead to unhealthy practices.  At Chalice, we have been working closely with a Nova Scotia Chapter of Days for Girls to distribute reusable feminine hygiene kits.  On this mission we distributed kits, trained local women to make and market the kits, and provided education for the girls and women about their use.



Sharing Christ in Chile


Chalice Mission Trip to Chile 2016
Service: Parish Renovations and Global Alpha Training
Location: Arica, Chile
Dates: October 30 - November 10, 2015

A team of 8 volunteers from Saint Benedict Parish travelled with Chalice to our Arica Sponsor Site in Chile. Their mission was to fundraise for, as well as assisting in, building a second storey for the Parish Centre of Cristo Hermano Church. They also offered training for Alpha leaders, so that the Alpha Course could be offered at the parish. See what it's all about.
