What is Mission Uganda?
Mission Uganda is a partnership between Lutheran Church of Hope and ChildVoice International. This is an opportunity for us to spread the love of Christ to children whose lives have been torn apart by war in northern Uganda. Join with ChildVoice as we create a community of hope for former child soldiers and their families.
 
Where do we go and what do we do?
You will travel to a small rural area north of Gulu in northern Uganda where ChildVoice is bringing hope to the people through medical services, education, agricultural projects, a residential program for children, and worship and Bible study. There will be opportunities to serve in a variety of ways, including construction projects, helping with agricultural projects, working alongside educators as they teach young adults basic reading, writing and math, facilitating Bible studies, prayer and/or worship time, help with care of infants and young children, joining in to support Centre staff with sewing, cooking, etc., and potential medical screening and treatment opportunities.
