What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

IMG_7081 You will be spending your days ministering to the kids, sharing Jesus with them, and assisting the Ugandan staff in feeding and taking care of the children. Ministry opportunities include: working with children, assisting the care of special needs children, teaching, bible lessons, arts and crafts, providing healthcare, helping in school, housework such as cooking and cleaning, and many more opportunities.

As a short-term missionary, you will be living at the Children's Home and working with the kids and staff on a daily basis. There will be one or two days a week that you will have the opportunity to see Uganda and serve alongside other ministries, we call these outreach days. Some of the things that you might be doing include praying with people, helping at other children's homes, teaching at local schools, door-to-door evangelism, building projects, work at babies home, doing community outreach, playing football (soccer) with kids and more. There are many opportunities and you can tell us what your passion is and where you would like to serve.

We are a home, a community, and a family. This means that it is important to work together, intentionally looking for ways to serve each other, building relationships, respecting differences, and teaching each other. We want to provide a united and strong example for the children and for our community. In the past years, short-term missionaries from Europe, the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and others have joined us here in Uganda to serve alongside our staff at the Children's Home.

This mission trip will particularly suit those with a heart for children's ministry. You will have accommodation at the Children's Home in Kampala, staying with other short-term missionaries and Ugandan staff. The Children's Home is a western-style home with running water and electricity. It is located in a safe area and we will always put your safety first. We have wireless internet at the Children's Home so that you can stay in contact with your friends and family back home.

We are flexible on dates. This trip is customisable to suit the dates that are available with your schedule. To apply for a short-term missions trip with us you can go to our website at to get the application form and pastoral reference form or email us for more information at [email protected]

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

We work with local communities and churches to identify orphaned and hurting children. We are committed to whole-heartedly following Christ's call and his example of living life and loving others. As we share the gospel and disciple those we work with, our prayer is that they too will come to know Christ more and live out the same commitment to Christ's call on their life.
