This trip is an opportunity to meet incredible people working to make there lives of orphaned children more hopeful.

This trip is designed for those who want to see and learn how the lives of orphaned children are being changed through our work. You will visit each of our programmes in education, social work, and business and learn, observe and encourage local change-makers.

Second, complete the COVID-19 Waiver, and return via email to [email protected] Once the application period is closed, applicants will be interviewed to ensure qualifications are met and to learn more about applicants.

How are Trips funded?

Once you have been accepted on a specific trip, your trip leader will set an all-inclusive trip cost for you/your group. You/your group can choose to pay out of pocket for your trip or fundraise the cost of your trip. We will provide resources and ideas on how trip funds can be raised. ALL funds need to be raised two weeks prior to the trip departure date and a £100 deposit is due at the time of the first training meeting.


The all-inclusive trip cost covers airfare, visa, room at Edith's Hope guesthouse, transportation, and meals while at project. It does NOT cover vaccinations, meals/snacks while traveling, souvenirs, meals at Jinja, and alcohol. We will provide a packing list at the first training meeting including required clothing and suggested items to bring on the trip.
