Empowerment Teams

Tackling poverty not just where it hits the roof over your head or whether there is food in your stomach but where it robs a child of their self-esteem, their motivation to achieve and their ability to dream.

These teams bring laughter, fun, encouragement and praise to hundreds of children and by travelling with us you are providing much-needed aspiration to these often neglected and vulnerable kids.

Sample Itinerary:

Day 1
Tour of Kampala Animal Sanctuary and meet the White Rhinos and feed the giraffes

Day 2 – 6
Travel with the team from the Aids Information Centre to one primary school each day (the medical team from AIC will be conducting the HIV/AIDs, Hep A and Cervical Cancer tests – volunteers may get involved if they have the appropriate medical training) and run ball games with songs, dramas and (where appropriate) partnering with our Ugandan team delivering sex education and the Develop with Dignity programme.

Day 7
Church in Mukongoro (an optional cultural experience!) and BBQ before rolling out the empowerment programme in another school

Day 8
Again taking our Empowerment programme into the final school of the trip

Day 9 – 10
Wind down in a local resort overlooking the Nile and travel home.

“It was great to be on a team that had such a positive impact and where each member of the team were fully engaged and involved in delivering the programme!”
