Mobilizing and enabling ORDINARY PEOPLE to make an EXTRAORDINARY IMPACT on the lives of people in impoverished and developing areas of the world.
A team of 21 people set out to Uganda March 24th through April 6th. The team members come from Colorado, Mississippi, North Carolina, and even Oman! We raised funds for a school building in the impoverished village of Kigalama. While in Uganda, we helped with some of the construction of this school and spent time with the school children. We visited other Maranatha Christian Schools and also the two orphanages we serve in Naama and Wandawa. Some of our team members are sponsors who had the chance to meet their kids! 100s of pounds of donated items were brought for people in need. At the end of the two-week trip, the team headed to Paraa Safari Lodge at Murchison Falls for the tourist part of the trip. It was an amazing, memorable time for our team members, serving the people of Uganda in a tangible way.
