Our trips help deepen relationships and provide support for those doing incredible work to change the story of disability globally.

We desire to provide a way for others to travel abroad and personally engage individuals with disability around the world. Our trip teams include individuals with a variety of skill sets.

99 Balloons Global Trips are open to anyone. However, each trip has specific spots available depending on our partner’s needs and requests. Follow the links below to find more information about each trip opportunity.

Ben Richards, our Equipping Director, led a team to North India in the summer of 2015. The team was given the opportunity to work with a disability support center that serves over 180 villages in the rural foothills of India. The team consisted of seven volunteers that had skill sets involving physical therapy, speech therapy, and social work.  Ben was also able to facilitate a two-day training on Disability, Marginalization, and the Church for over 50 pastors.

99 Balloons led it’s first team to Haiti in summer 2014. A team of Special Education professionals provided training for a school that desires to become more inclusive. The school currently has a handful of children with special needs, but with passionate local teachers who have huge hearts to provide an education for kids with special needs, they hope to open their school to more children with special needs in their community.

We returned back to Uganda in fall 2014. Our team was made up of professionals including an occupational therapist, speech therapist, and social worker, as well as several volunteers who assisted with school activities and helped prepare and paint a rEcess room that will be used for overnight respite. We, along with our partners, also hosted a celebration for over 60 families experiencing disability.
