Family Trips

Family Trips

We love having families partner with us for mission trips! Your family’s willingness to humbly serve as needed will bolster the community and our staff. We are also excited to show you how God is moving in the local Ugandan church and the richness of the faith of the local believers. While on the ground, families usually spend one to two weeks in Uganda or Kenya participating in some of the following activities:

  • Helping the national staff with programs
  • Engaging and fellowshipping with the community
  • Going on home visits and praying with the community
  • Supporting the local church’s children and youth ministry
  • Participating in our sports ministry and outreach
  • Conducting medical missions and health education
  • Discipling the local believers and children
  • Supporting teaching and training as requested

Customized Dates

We allow all volunteers to design the dates of their trip. Our programs run throughout the year so can come whether you can only take two weeks off work or want to spend spring break with the kids in East Africa. All that we ask is that you arrive and leave on a Monday and arrive during the day. You will be assisted in booking your flight arrangements and we will take care of picking you up at the airport upon arrival in Africa.


We welcome all volunteer ages five and older to come! We try to make the cost of our trips as reasonable as possible. There are two fees: an administration fee; and a mission fee payable to Empower a Child based on the ages of those serving. The mission fee covers all the basic things you will need on the ground including housing, food, and required transport. The application fee is due to the U.S. office two weeks after your application is approved. The mission fees are due to the U.S. office at least 45 days prior to arrival in Africa. If this trip is God’s will then He will provide you with the necessary funding.  Click here for some helpful fundraising ideas.

1. Administration Fee – $225
