The Trip :: May 2018
Ekisa Ministries is hosting a vision trip to Jinja Uganda to allow you to see firsthand the work of Ekisa and the impact we are making for children living with special needs and their families.
The trip will be in May 2018 and will give participants 5 full days in country.
During the trip, participants will see and experience our 3 Core Programs :: Residential Care, Community Care, and Ekisa Academy. You will get to know the 18 children in our children's home, and learn more about what we do everyday to improve their quality of life.
Time will be spent at an Ekisa “Core Group” where you will meet families in our Community Care program as they come for therapy and meet with their social worker. You will also get the chance to witness class in action at Ekisa Academy and see how our special education teachers work individually with each student to help them learn and experience the world.
In addition, you'll come away with a clear frame of reference as we unpack more details about the stigma of disability in Uganda, our new empowerment programs, and our efforts in foster care.
Uganda is known as the pearl of Africa, and Jinja is the beginning of the Nile River. One day of the trip will be dedicated to seeing some of the beauty of the country and why it has earned that name.
In-country travel arrangements including transportation, and accommodations will be arranged by Ekisa Ministries as well as assisting with air travel bookings.
