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.
Mornings: You will either be building new school facilities or renovating existing ones. We have helped to build 14 new classrooms at various schools in Kumi's vulnerable communities, as well as refurbish others. We have also built 2 latrine blocks, 4 teacher's homes, refurbished dormitories, built and re-roofed many traditional homes in remote villages as well as providing a fence for the COHAD (children's home) site with other repair works. In 2020 and 2021, our teams will support local builders to build new classrooms and facilities at Kumi PAG Primary School.
Expect to be distracted by the children who will be thrilled that you care enough to come and help a community in need far from home.
Afternoon: Support local community projects such as St Stephens Child Development Centre Compassion Project, where you'll support and assist their outreach. You'll 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.
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.
