1,000 School Packs to Help Keep Kids in School - We believe the solution to generational poverty is for kids to stay in school, develop life-long knowledge and skills, and join the workforce so they can help their families. But in many developing countries, kids drop out really early because their families cannot afford basic school supplies. We have a plan! We're going to provide packs stuffed with school supplies, and uniforms where needed, to 1,000 at-risk kids. Dawn Carnill shares our plan in this video.

Christmas Celebrations

Each year, we celebrate Christmas with thousands of the poorest of the poor. These celebrations bring hope to the hopeless, build trust and cultivate relationships that Extreme Response has developed with those who have been forgotten by society.

Christmas Outreach Teams serve with Extreme Response staff members, partners and local volunteers by providing gifts, food, games, crafts, face painting and lots of hugs. A sightseeing opportunity is included on every trip. We accept volunteers who are sponsored by their company, school, or church, as well as those coming as individuals, all of whom form a single team serving under the Extreme Response leadership. Christmas Outreach Teams are made up of people from various countries, cultures, races and religious affiliations. Because of the intense schedule, with the average trip lasting 8-14 days depending on the location, we require team members to be a minimum of 16 years old and in good health.
