What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

04_April_Big_Kasolo For over 40 years, we have been committed to serving children living in impoverished environments around the world by establishing economic, spiritual, water, orphan, and feeding programs. In addition to these programs, we have been leading teams of volunteers on two-week international mission trips bringing life-saving provisions and the spirit of Jesus. Our short-term mission trips support our long term partners and programs.

We reach out to every child and community we serve by bringing hope through our 4 pillars of hope: Dignity, Health, Joy, and Love. By responding to critical needs, we can significantly impact lives and assist people who are struggling to survive in destitute communities in becoming self-sufficient.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

Before Hope 4 Kids begins serving in an area, we identify and establish a relationship with an existing ministry. Hope 4 Kids has been serving in Uganda for over 10 years.

"The flexibility of the schedule and the numerous available outreach opportunities allowed for a new and exciting experience every day of the trip. The people of Africa truly have changed my life. I've never met such interesting,warm, and hospitable people. I feel so blessed to have been able to serve them. I can't wait to go again!"
-Natalie Eggum (Uganda, Kenya, Russia)

"In the midst of unimaginable poverty and pain, the Ugandans gave whatever they had or received unconditionally to one another despite their own needs I never knew I would learn so much from people who I thought had so little."
-Jamie Nolette (Uganda)

"When I planned this trip, I had hoped to make an impact on their lives, but in reality the impact was made on me. I saw how amazing people truly are when following Christ. Their love and caring has shown me how much richer they are even without material goods."
