WE CANNOT ACCEPT HANDWRITTEN APPLICATIONS.
If you are 16 years of age or younger, you must have a parent or other adult who will be responsible for you while on this mission trip.
Many of the children and families SHIP works with live on less than $2 a day. We restrict the size of monetary gifts to avoid creating opportunities for dependence and to avoid fostering jealousy within the community, which could place a child and his or her family at risk.
Our goal is to stop the cycle of poverty that stalks families from one generation to the next, and we do this by equipping children with the skills they need to be successful in their own right.
Note: SHIP will never hand over cash gift money to sponsorSHIP students or their families. Instead, SHIP will make purchases according to the need of the sponsored child and family.
The information on this application form and on any attached forms is correct to the best of my knowledge. Additionally, I have read and agree to the Photo/Video Release, Notice of Understanding, Financial Notice of Understanding, and Gift-giving Policy.
I authorize SHIP to perform a criminal background check.
I authorize any references to release all such information, as it will assist in the evaluation of my participation on a SHIP mission trip. I release all references from liability for any damage that may result from furnishing such information to SHIP. I waive any right that I may have to inspect references or the background check. I hereby give SHIP permission to contact my references and appropriate government agencies.
I have read and agree to abide by the policies set forth on the form, SHIP Policies for International Short-Term Mission Trips, and I support SHIP’s Statement of Faith (located at https://shipinternational.org/mission-trips/applications-forms/).
