meet your Leader


Hi! My name is Barrett Tanner and I am so excited to be leading this trip! I went to Uganda with Sozo 4 years ago as a student at Samford. I am currently getting my Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling at UAB in Birmingham! I have been involved with Sozo since returning from Uganda in 2014 from interning at the office to volunteering at events. I also sponsor Vanitah and she’s become one of my favorite friends! I can't wait to get back to my favorite place with my favorite kiddos - and to introduce them to ya’ll! 

About your trip

On this trip, team members will have the opportunity to experience all the work Sozo Children is a part of in Uganda. This trip is designed for you to experience not only the amazing work God is doing in Uganda but also to grow in your relationship with Him throughout the week! You can look forward to traveling into the village to host our kid’s club, participating in nightly devotion, ministering in the village, and countless other meaningful experiences. This trip will be marked by significant relationships with our Sozo kids, staff, and community. We are confident once you experience this incredible country and the people in it you will feel so connected you’ll have to return in the future!


We believe a day of rest is much needed for your time in Uganda. This team will get to experience the beauty of this country on a day we call the “Day in Creation”. Your team will embark on an incredible safari experience at Lake Mburo National Park! You will see many African animals as you are taken on a guided game drive and boat ride. You can also look forward to stops at the equator and an African drum making shop! This is an incredible opportunity you will hold onto for the rest of your life!
