Uganda, Africa

We will work with the Kampala campus of Freedom Church to help change their community and reach people for Jesus.

About the Trip

Freedom Heroes in Kampala provides food, medical care, education, and housing to more than 100 boys and young men living on the streets. The McKinsey House gives boys a place to call home. As much as possible, Freedom Heroes works to reunite children with their families. As these young men get older, Freedom Heroes provides the opportunity to receive higher education or vocational training.

In Uganda, trip participants serve in all parts of the Heroes program — from outreach to kids living on the street to serving in the school to helping at the boys’ home. Trip participants work on construction projects to improve the Heroes Home and get the chance to invite people from a local university to attend church and hear about Jesus. On rest day, the team goes on safari and spends the night in one of Uganda’s beautiful national parks.

The cost of the trip is $3,500. A $150 deposit is due immediately once accepted for the trip and is non-refundable. The cost includes airfare, hotel, meals, and transportation while in Uganda. You will be responsible for your meals and snacks in the airports and for any souvenirs you would like to purchase. Additional cost may include an up-to-date passport, any shots you choose to get, and $100 for a visa upon arrival in Uganda.
