Church and school group trips

Church groups, youth groups, and small groups can partner with us for mission trips that can have a big impact on our community and your community. 

Teams usually spend one to two weeks in Uganda or Kenya participating in some of the following activities:

  • Medical missions
  • Construction
  • Children and youth ministry 
  • Church leadership training
  • Men's & women's discipleship
  • Teaching
  • Business training and development
  • Vocational training, such as agriculture

The trip would end with a three-day safari in one of Uganda's or Kenya's national parks.

Customized Dates

We allow you to design the dates of your trip. Whether you are called to take a semester off from school, a year off before you go to school or enter the workforce, or you are being called to a different career path, our long term volunteers have found their time to be a life changing experience.


We try to make the cost of our trips as reasonable as possible. If this trip is God’s will then He will provide you with the necessary funding.  Click here for some helpful fundraising ideas.
