What you will be doing

 

Launching our Kumi campaigns in 2011, we have worked with a number of projects here over the years building clinics, boreholes houses, latrine blocks and classrooms to support Kumi’s generation of orphans from the HIV/Aids pandemic. 

In 2017, we embarked on a new partnership with Kumi Bazaar School, which – in 2016 – had 898 pupils in seven classrooms, with many children sitting on the floor to learn. Over the last 2 years our volunteers have helped to build new classrooms. In 2020 you will be focusing on refurbishing and altering classroom blocks at Kumi PAG Primary School.

Each afternoon, you’ll be supporting local community projects – including the experience of building a traditional straw house with a family.

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.


Orientation and reunion days

Each mission team has an orientation day held in the UK prior to their trip. This gives you the opportunity to meet your fellow team members as well as some or all of the country staff team. The day aims to fully prepare you for your trip, equipping you with all of the information you need and giving you the chance to ask any questions. Lunch and refreshments are provided. The date of orientation for this team is: 25 January 2020.

Your trip contribution also includes a UK reunion day once you have returned home after your mission trip. This is an opportunity to reconvene with your team and look back on some of the highlights and memories of the two weeks. Feedback from previous volunteers has taught us that this reunion is also important to help teams reflect and digest what they’ve seen and experienced as well as understand how it has affected them. We’ll also aim to help you ensure that your two-week mission makes a lasting difference in your life. Lunch and refreshments are provided. The date of reunion for this team is: 16 May 2020.
