Individual Short-term Mission Trips:

Short-term missions trips range from 1 weeks to 3 months. Volunteers are welcome to come as individuals and join our weekly outreach programs and work in areas of praise and worship, skits and drama, games, sports outreach and crafts and sharing the love of Christ with the most vulnerable youth of Uganda. Volunteers also work in a project of their choice. Many people come volunteer with babies’ or work alongside children in our preschool, join a sports ministry outreach to village children and youth, teach in a school for orphans and vulnerable children, teach in a school for children with disabilities, or work in a medical clinic.

Group Short-term Mission Trips:

Churches, youth groups, and small groups are welcome to partner with us in short-term mission trips. These mission trips are usually about two weeks. The team can participate in a free medical camp for the village, train teachers in our primary school, train pastors and youth leaders or participate in youth ministry, help to build a project that will create self-sustainability and economic empowerment for a family of orphans or the entire village. The trip would end with a three-day safari in one of Uganda’s national parks.

Safaris are conducted by View Africa Tour Specialists, a safari company set-up to give back. A portion of all profits on these safaris go back to support the work of Empower a Child. See them at www.viewafricasafari.com.

Note: If you are an individual interested in joining a group short-term mission trip we hold two mission trips each summer where individuals join together from different parts of America and the UK for two weeks in Africa. Even if your church cannot come for a mission trip you may still participate in a group trip.

Costs

* $1600 – $2000 per person depending on type of project
(safari included)

5 months and more

If you are interested in committing 5 months to one year in Uganda you can join Empower a Child longer term as a Ministry Support Team (MST) member. For those interested in coming three months to one year you would assist our full-time staff in weekly outreach programs as well as volunteer at various projects of your choice. As an MST you have the flexibility to volunteer at a projects that coincide with your gifts, talents, and passions. Some volunteers have a heart for babies and toddlers and spend their time in babies’ homes while some may have a passion for teens and work in a youth ministry for our village youth. Many past MST members have even started new programs and created improvements for some of the projects they volunteered at.
