Uganda

Uganda is a vital country in Africa with over 30 million residents. Located on the eastern side of Africa, Uganda is bordered by Kenya, Sudan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, and Rwanda. In addition, a substantial portion of Lake Victoria is located in Uganda.

From outreach in the capital city of Kampala to street children to working in the schools out in remote villages, ministry opportunities are immense.

Language
Since its independence, the official language of Uganda is English. There are over 40 languages spoken in Uganda including Luganda, Buganda, Lusoga, Runyankore and Swahili.

Transportation/Lodging
All transportation will be secured by One Way Ministries. We will fly out of the Birmingham, Alabama airport (BHM) to Entebbe (EBB). While in Uganda, we will be staying in various locations depending on the worksite. Some teams may stay in homes and/or schools in townships while others may stay at local motels. Some trips require living in the townships with locals in rural situations. Transportation generally comes in the form of vans while in country.

Climate
The weather in Uganda is consistent as it is near the equator. The low temperature averages in the 60’s with the highs in the 80’s. With varying elevations, there can be snow on Mount Elgon and much cooler temperatures in the mountains.

Cost
A 7 day trip is $950, 10 days is $1350 and 14 days is $1850. These prices include lodging, food, and trip leadership. Transportation (airfare) is a separate expense and is based on the departing airport as well as how far out the trip is booked.

Work
The day to day ministry work in Uganda is diversified. Daily opportunities include community outreach, VBS/Backyard Bible clubs, education/school ministry, orphan care and church services. Each mission team is equipped to share the Gospel, work diligently and serve in such a way that God alone is glorified. Our aim is to live out the Gospel message in order to draw people to Christ!
