Trip participants will travel to a rural area in northern Uganda where ChildVoice International is bringing hope through a therapeutic, Christ-centered program for young war-affected women and their children.

The over-reaching purpose of this trip is to bring God’s love to these women by simply being present, learning their stories, encouraging, and fellowshipping with them. The team participates in daily Chapel with devotions and prayer, supporting ChildVoice staff to teach girls about what it means to be a child of God.

There will be opportunities to serve in a variety of ways, including Bible lessons, prayer and worship time, construction and/or agricultural projects, early childhood education, vocational education, care of infants and young children, recreational games, medical service, and more.
