With just three weeks to go until the start of the 2023 team trip, everyone is very excited and can hardly wait. On November 2, 2023, most of the team got together to pack their suitcases with donated commodity items. With a lot of physical effort, every little space in each suitcase was filled. Not only a lot of clothes were packed, but also some toys and household items. What joy we can create in Uganda. Simply a wonderful feeling. Would you like to see pictures of the handover? Then just check our diary of this year’s team trip regularly. Here we report daily on what we did.
Here we will report again what our team has experienced on our trip from 23rd November to 23rd December 2023, what tasks we had locally and how your donations were used. Also this year, the diary will not only be written by one person, but each traveler will tell once from his perspective. We hope you enjoy reading it. November 23th, 2023 (Gabi) What a lot of excitement so shortly before departure. My airline has now really changed every flight for me again. Both on arrival and departure. But the team is also affected by many flight changes. But today I’m traveling alone for the time being. I leave for the airport in the middle of the night. After stopovers in Amsterdam and Tanzania, I finally reach my destination late in the evening. It’s so nice to be back in my second home. November 24th, 2023 (Gabi) FromWeiterlesen / Continue reading

The day already starts great. The cab driver who takes me to the airport is so interested in the project that he gives me cash right away and tells me to use it on site. The flights leave on time and Richard is already waiting for me at the airport. Tired, I go to bed around 2 a.m. local time.Weiterlesen / Continue reading

This year, too, the diary will not be written by just one person, but each of our fellow travellers will tell their story from their own perspective. We hope you enjoy reading it. December 23, 2021 (Gabi) In the meantime, everyone from the team has arrived back home or at their next destination. During this team trip, we had to deal with unusually frequent power and water cuts due to heavy rainfall. The loss of a child particularly affected us and showed us again how different the chances of survival are in such a country compared to our home country. We have experienced the full range of emotions this time. Nevertheless, we also look back onWeiterlesen / Continue reading
Paul travelled with our team to Uganda on 18 October 2019. He will stay 2 months with our dear friends of the Sonrise Ministries.

So we can follow the development of the children and the progress of our projects over a long period of time. Read about his experiences here: 9 December 2019 The kids had their casting for the Lion King last Friday and presented a few sentences of the characters that they applied for. We have a total of 35 participants. As I am out sick with flu, I will have some time to think about who will be the future king, to invent some new characters and to write the script. 5 December 2019 Today was the first day of vacation for the Kamuli kids.
