Kumi in Eastern Uganda will give you a taste of the ‘real Africa’. The colours are bright, the welcomes are big, the wildlife is jaw-dropping and the scenery is breath-taking. However, underneath that traditional view, the need is significant. We’ve worked with partners here for many years, supporting the need for additional classrooms and further educational facilities to support the growing class sizes. Education is the key to breaking poverty and we’re working to help children here have access to full-time schooling.
Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.
Like most of Africa, Uganda has a young population which is growing fast. Almost half of Kumi is under 15 and are all desperate for education. Schools here are bursting at the seams and are in need of additional classrooms.
You'll join us in supporting local community projects such as St Stephen's Child Development Centre Compassion Project, Kumi Prison and COHAD (children's home). You will also have the incredible experience of building a traditional Ugandan village home with a family in a remote area who have been nominated by their community to receive help.
For a few hours each morning, you'll also lend a hand to local builders with our building project to construct teachers' houses at Kumi Bazaar School, aim to help the school attract and retain good educators for the children here. Expect to be distracted by excited and playful children!
As well as visiting a coffee plantation, you will enjoy a safari and witness the spectacular Sipi Falls. Our words cannot describe the magnificent view over this beautiful land.
The teams in Uganda Kumi have been doing an incredible job. Here are a few of the most recent stories and stats from the projects...
new classrooms for community schools
traditional village homes renovated
new homes for teachers
Orientation days and reunion days are included to help you get the most from your trip.
