FAQs

How much does it cost?

Generally, trips cost around $1800-$2000, excluding international flights. This covers daily living expenses, internal transport and accommodation.

 

When do you normally run trips and who are they for?

We run Vision Trips in January and October. The January trip is geared towards students, younger adults, and can include families with children over the age of 10. The October trip is open to all, including older participants.

We run our annual fundraising trek in October for anyone interested.

 

How fit do I need to be to go on a trek?

While you do need a level of fitness, you don’t need to be an athlete! INF will provide a suggested training program to help you increase your fitness.

 

How much money do I have to raise to go on the trek?

You don’t have to raise a certain amount to be able to participate. We do, however, provide you with the tools to inspire people to give generously, so that you can raise as much as you are able to for our life-changing work.
