What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Worker with Orphan Individual Short-term Mission Trips:

Short-term missions trips range from 2 weeks to 2 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 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 in orphanages, babies’ homes, join a sports ministry outreach to street children, teach in a school for orphans and vulnerable children, teach in a school for handicapped children, or work in a medical clinic.

* Two weeks $550
* One month $750
* Two months $1000

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 first week the team will join our weekly outreach programs and the second week the team will be in the village helping 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. 100% of all profits on these safaris go back to support the work of Empower A Child. See them at

Note: If you are an individual interested in joining a group short-term mission trip we hold one mission trip 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.


* $1500-$2000 per person depending on type of building project
(safari included)

3 months and more

If you are interested in committing three months to one year in Uganda you can join Empower A Child longer term as a Ministry Support Team (MST) member.

As an MST you have the flexibility to volunteer at a projects that coincide with your gifts, talents, and passions.
