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. 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 it will be difficult to return home.

This is a unique time to travel to Uganda as most of our kids are home from boarding school. This time of the year is such a fun time for not only our kids but also our team members. This is a great trip for college students on winter break before starting the new semester. You will not regret attending this trip to Uganda!

We believe a day of rest is much needed for your time in Uganda. This team will get to decide between one of two rest days we call the “Day in Creation”. Your team will choose to either drive 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, and eat at a great local café.  If your team chooses safari, you will embark on an incredible 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. (Note: These experiences are not included in the trip cost and will cost $150 for safari and $75 + optional bunjee fee for Jinja.)

Team Leader: RON OWENS 

Ron graduated from Mars Hill College with a degree in International Business. Before Sozo began, Suzanne and Ron were working with youth at their church, teaching and serving through missions. The couple helped launch two young men to Uganda as missionaries and from that trip Sozo Children began. Faith and trusting in God became more than words on a page. Ron joined in March as the Village Project Manager, overseeing the construction of the village.
