Important Information for WOS 2022

Lord willing, we are going to South Africa this summer. Due to the present unrest and COVID-19, we are continually assessing the situation to determine if it is safe to go. Instead of asking you to register at this time, we will need you to save your spot by making a $100.00 deposit by clicking on the button below (select Women of Strength in the dropdown menu), as we need a minimum of 20 participants to make this trip possible, with a maximum of 50. We are planning with our South African partners for this trip which requires us to provide the potential number of women that will be attending.

Amor is also requiring the participants of this trip to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 plus, if applicable, be up to date with their most recent booster. In addition to the immunization, proof of a negative COVID-19 test result is required within a few days of travel. Ten days before your arrival to South Africa, you will also need to keep a Health Log. If you have any questions, please call LaDonna Barron at (619) 662-1200 x121. We will continue to communicate with you as this trip unfolds. We have some new opportunities along with past traditions for you. Looking forward to a new adventure.

Trip Details

Amor Founder, Gayla Congdon, created Women of Strength for women from all around the world to come together and build a home alongside a family in South Africa. Not only is a complete home built, but culture is shared through cooking, beading, and dancing. The history of Apartheid in South Africa is taught by those who experienced it. Ultimately, we show that when women come together and serve together, everyone is stronger.
