Ethical short-term missions (STM) involves far more than just organising the logistics of a trip.
It's important to recognise that implementing ethical STM is complex and therefore requires careful consideration and planning.
This section of the website will help guide your organisation as you practically outwork the considerations and concepts discussed in the previous ethical framework section. If you haven't already, we suggest you first read and consider completing the ethical reflection tool before continuing.
The information in this section is designed for both sending and receiving organisations. This may include, but is not limited to, churches sending teams, local community organisations receiving teams, or organisations which handle both.
