Team Leader: Laurel Reeves

I have known about Sozo since I was in middle school. I went to Uganda for the first time the summer between my freshman and sophomore years in high school, and it changed my life for the better. Not long after coming back from Uganda the first time, I started the Sozo club at my high school. Following my senior year in high school, I traveled to Uganda for the second time. It was amazing to be back in my favorite place in the world and to see all the friends I had made on my first trip. Everyone involved with Sozo is filled with so much joy, and it really is contagious. It's obvious that a joy like that can only come from the Father. I am beyond excited to travel back to Uganda, and I can't wait to see all that God does in this team!

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”. This team will be traveling to Jinja, the source of the Nile River, where you will have the opportunity to bunjee jump (if you choose to do so), take a boat ride on the Nile, and eat at a great local café! If you choose to bunjee jump, Sozo Children will not claim liability nor pay for the experience, however, you are more than welcome to jump! This is such an exhilarating and memorable experience for our team members.
