Individual Short-term Missions

If you want to join us as an individual, our short-term missions range from two weeks to four months. As a member of the team your day-to-day outreach will include working in orphanages, babies’ homes, children’s hospitals, teaching in schools and running sports ministry for the young people.

In Uganda the ministry schedule is often split into alternate weeks. The first week the team is involved in outreach visiting schools and projects across the area of Kampala (the capital city). The second week has a specific focus with the rural community of Zirobwe, where Empower a Child is building a school and training centre for the young people. When in Zirobwe volunteers may be involved in home visits, contributing to the build and maintenance of the training centre, running Sunday School and enjoying fellowship with the children of the village. In Kenya the ministry schedule focuses primarily on the slums of Nairobi.

Individual Long-term Missions

If you are interested in committing four months or more to serve with us, you will join the ministry team with a specific focus and usually take up a position of responsibility.
