2015 is a year of growth and excitement here at Abide. After our financial scare earlier this year, we are so excited to share not only is Abide stable in it’s programs and funding, but we are looking towards the future and towards growth!
One of the ways we are growing is by adding Vision Trips to our list of ways people can learn about and become involved with Abide. We had our first pilot trip earlier in October and it was so much fun. A group of ladies came from America to SEE and LEARN what orphan prevention and care looks like here in Uganda and the experience for everyone involved was irreplaceable.
After much thought we’ve decided to plan two more vision trips to Abide in 2016!!
Want to come to Uganda and see firsthand what Abide is doing to keep children in families? Want to meet our staff and the families we work with? Want to tour and meet our partner organizations? Want to learn about the challenges vulnerable families face and how they can be supported in staying together? Do you want to have a life changing, eye opening and educational experience in the Pearl of Africa?
We have two Vision Trips planned for 2016.
Dates* tentative to change depending on plane tickets:
Trip 1, March 5-13 [Application deadline is January 5th]
