2020 Uganda Family
About the Journey
Through our partnership with Champions United FC soccer group, this global(x) team will journey to Uganda. Uganda, a country situated on the equator in Eastern Africa, is a diverse landscape of snow-capped mountains, the vast Lake Victoria, and abundant wildlife. It’s also known for its love of soccer, which is a perfect way to connect with its people.
We need a high-energy team that is ready to actively engage as they relate to the Ugandan youth. Our partner, Champions United FC, is committed to seeing the next generation transformed through soccer. Together the teams will develop leadership skills and come together in Christ through the shared love of sports.
From Atlanta, the team will fly into Entebbe International Airport. Some of the activities you might expect after you arrive in the village are visits to local kindergartens and primary schools, meeting Ugandan coaches, and getting to know some of the local people. The global(x) team will also set up and facilitate a two-day UpStreet-style camp for local children and help teach a fun, interactive hygiene curriculum at local schools. You can also plan for some gatherings around a fire pit at night to round out these rewarding days.
During the remainder of your visit, you’ll connect with local families as you visit their homes and serve with the Ugandan coaches.
Sharing the love of Jesus as you connect with the people of the village works to build a spirit of leadership and compassion. Listening to and learning about the passions and struggles of the Ugandan families will be an eye-opening experience, and one you won’t soon forget.
Before heading back to the states, the team will see some local sights, have an adventure, and process the week together before heading to the airport.

New for 2020!
You're busy enough so we're taking some things off your to-do list! We've reduced the number of forms you need to complete by adding a few questions to the global(x) application. Students, if you are under the age of 18 and will be at the time of travel, you will need a parent present to help you complete this part of the application. We'll also collect your credit card information during the application process so that we can automatically credit your deposit to your account once you're placed on a team. And, we no longer need a paper copy of your passport. Just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile and you're done!
