2020 Uganda North Point InsideOut
About the Journey
Through our partnership with Champions United FC, this student 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 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.
A visa AND a yellow fever vaccine are REQUIRED for entry to Uganda, and are the responsibility of the team member. See "Prerequisites" and "Forms" below.
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, simply 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. And, no more paper copies of your passport needed, just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile, and you're done!
global(x) is a part of North Point Ministries. global(x) provides meaningful journeys for teams to serve at-risk people in communities around the world. We want to help combine faith and service to help make life better for those in need.
