Student Study Trips
We encourage school groups from U.S., UK, Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, and all over the world to come spend two weeks with us. Your trip will include volunteering in babies' homes, orphanages, street kids projects, sports programs, medical clinics, and building projects in a village, experiencing culture sites and traditional dance shows around Kampala, standing at the very beginning of the mighty Nile River and end with three days on safari to one of Uganda's national parks. Students will get to experience some of the greatest wildlife in the world while working alongside the community together to achieve a common goal. A trip like this is guaranteed to change a student's worldview forever.
