Uganda Orphan Soccer — Teen Trip

Uganda Mission TripsUganda Missions TripDo you want to share the love of Jesus Christ with orphans and youth living in extreme poverty? Do you enjoy playing soccer? Then come spend your summer in Uganda, the Pearl of Africa! After Boot Camp training, you will bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. A connecting flight takes you across the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara Desert to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia,  then on to Entebbe, Uganda. As you continue your journey by bus, you will cross the mighty Nile River and likely see some of Uganda’s magnificent wildlife, such as baboons and hippos. Your project site will be in Koboko, Uganda, near the border of South Sudan. You will join the kids in soccer matches as you visit local schools and nearby soccer fields, as well as ministering to them through Gospel presentations and your Christian testimony. You will also continue construction on the Teen Missions in Uganda Koboko Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center. Housing will be indoors and showers will be available; laundry will be done using a bucket. Wood carvings, soapstone, beadwork and drums are just some of the items you may be able to purchase as a souvenir of your summer.

  1. I am very interested in this trip, and I am wondering if there are any more spots or openings? Also, what entirely does this initial cost cover? This is an incredible blessing for me to have found this, so thank you so much!

  2. Is there still room for a few more people? I am extremely interested in this. What does the cost cover, exactly?

    • Emory, There is still room. The cost covers your round-trip transportation to your project country, food, ground transportation, etc. It does NOT include your round-trip transportation to/from Florida, visa, passport, spending money, departure tax, etc.

  3. Hi! Is there still room? And when are payments due? Is there a payment plan or is it all due at one time? Also what is included?

    • Annie, There is still room. You are asked to send in money as you get your support. You must be fully funded by the time you arrive at Boot Camp. We have “goal dates” – 30 days, May 15, etc. Your round trip transportation to/from your project country is included along with food and ground transportation. Your passport, visa, spending money, transportation to/from Florida, departure taxes, etc. are not included.

  4. Are there any spots left. And I was wondering is it possible to sign up for next year because it is already November and I don’t have any money?

    • Savanna, There is still room and you have PLENTY of time to start raising your support. Most don’t register until January. If this is where the Lord wants you to go, He will provide. We have seen Him provide over $5000 in TWO weeks!

  5. Hi there , I live in Cape town , I want to on this trip,how can I do ,is it impossible if you’re in africa?… I’ve done 3 boot camps like a team member !

    • Bob, You can do the trip, but you would need to get the appropriate visas and be able to cover your round-trip transportation to/from US and the team costs.

  6. Hi, I really really want to go on this trip. I have been trying to get a hold of you guys for weeks but I arrive home from school too late to call you do you guys have an email address that I can contact? I also have other questions like do you guys help with fundraising? And how many spots are open?

    • Timothy, If we are closed when you get home from school, please call before you leave for school or you can email . Uganda is still open. We provide prayer cards and letters for you to send out to help you raise your support.

  7. hey! are there any spots left? If so, how many? I was wondering if you get service hours for your school by doing this mission trip, because I’m interested in them?

  8. How many spots are left?

  9. When is the best time to sign up and how quickly do these fill up? Also, how long is the team in Uganda and not at boot camp or the debrief?

    • Hannah, The best time to sign up is now to get your first choice. We already have one team full. You will be in Uganda about 3 1/2 to 4 weeks (depending on travel).

  10. How safe is this trip? I mean God will protect us, and if anything happens we know we will always be with him but are we somewhat protected on this trip? Are we required to know a specifc language?

    • Makala, Uganda is a safe place to go. We will not send the team if it is not safe. We have canceled/switched teams, even at the last minute, if it is deemed unsafe. You will always be in groups with a leader present when going anywhere outside the compound. No, you do not need to know a specific language. Most will speak English.

  11. Are girls required to wear the African ankle skirts? I have had friends go to Uganda and they needed to wear them and I was wondering if I need them and how to get them?

  12. Would I have to get a visa to go to Uganda?? Thanks so much!!

  13. Are flights included in this price??

  14. Would it be beneficial if you played soccer to come on this team?

  15. I’ve honestly not played much soccer, but I am still very interested in the trip .Do you actually need to be good at soccer to go?

  16. How do you get prayer cards to send out?

    • Brooke, Once you register, we will send out prayer cards. However, they will not be ready to send out until late September.

  17. How many people go on a trip like this?

  18. What is the age cut off for this trip?

    • Kelsey, There is not an age cut off. However, if you are 20 and older, you might want to consider being a leader, but you don’t have to.

  19. Is there a way to get help to pay for the trip? Like scholarships or anything.

    • Kelsey, We supply prayer cards and letters that you send out to family, friends and churches to help you raise your support.
