What’s included is accommodation, meals, cultural activities, on-island transportation (airfare is additional) and medical insurance.
There’s a catch, actually two.
During the day you’ll be participating in the Global Village Program with Habitat for Humanity. Your efforts will help build homes for low-income families on Kauai.
The second catch is that this program runs only from September 13-23. There are no scholarships available and participants must pay all expenses.
The team leader for this project is Merinda Bobeck from Connecticut. A long time volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, this will be Merinda’s first time serving as team leader.
Participants will be building homes in Anahola which is between Kapaa and Princeville. After hours will include activities such as beach time, hula lessons, a local luau, hiking and paddling.
Lodging is at Kahili Mountain Park which is 10 minutes west of Lihue. You’ll be sleeping in cabinettes which include 6 beds dormitory style, kitchenette and shared bath. If you want something nicer (like a hotel) you’ll need to wait until the program is over.
Twenty people will be participating. If you’re among them please let us know and thank you for helping.
Cost: $1,170 per person (includes meals, lodging, on-island transportation and insurance).
Dates: September 13-23, 2010
Airfare: Not included. There should be great deals in September which will be announced later in the summer.
