“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” – James 1:27, ESV
Uganda is a place of extraordinary natural beauty. It’s a place of huge smiles, genuine kindness, incredible friendliness… and deep poverty like you’ve never imagined. We can attest to all of this because our team has been there and seen it – many times.
You are invited to join us. Here is what a typical trip might look like:
Teams generally consist of one or more members of the Sixty Feet board and 6-12 other individuals like yourself. We generally spend about 6-7 days on the ground in Uganda, which means about 8-9 days away from the US with the travel time needed to get there and back. Flights from Atlanta (through Amsterdam) on Delta/KLM will run between $1500 and $2500 per traveler, depending on the time of year. Summer months are generally more expensive.
While in Uganda, we stay in one of several very nice, clean and well-run guest houses. These are run more or less like a bed and breakfast. We will leave each morning just after breakfast and while each trip is unique and does not follow a consistent agenda, some of the things that will most likely take place include:
Visiting one of the remand homes
Visiting children in our sponsorship program in school or in one of the mentor-run homes where they stay during school breaks
Meeting some of the partner ministries that we work with in Kampala
Sitting in on a meeting between our staff and government officials
Serving our in-country staff by shouldering some of their work to give them a break
Visiting our partner church community in Bwerenga
Completing a restoration project in a remand home or with our church partners
Or whatever God places in our path at that particular moment
