African Promise Expeditions is excited to announce our 2020 expedition filled with leadership and personal development, mindfulness, cultural immersion, and adventure safari!
Experience the trip of a lifetime as you visit Uganda, Africa. When you arrive at African Hospitality Institute you will be greeted by AHI staff. They will be waiting with freshly squeezed passion fruit juice and a warm wash cloth to help you refresh after your long journey! Spend the first six days of your expedition serving in the community of Nakasongola, a village in central Uganda. Bring out your inner child and play in the mud as you work with locals to "mud" a building or classroom! Other activities will include learning to make local food with AHI staff, milking a cow, working in a kitchen to serve lunch at a local school, deworming students teaching and playing with children at a local primary school distributing hygiene kits and much more. You will also have the opportunity to work with Cornerstone Leadership Academy, a high school for potential leaders doing experiential activities and forming lasting relationships. There will also be opportunities to learn about mindfulness and practice meditation if you would like! Finish the trip off with an incredible adventure to Murchison Falls National Park where you will go on safari and a Nile River boat cruise.
It is important to note: This trip is NOT about serving “poor” Africans, but rather an experiential adventure that will expose you to Ugandan culture and community. Our engagement in service is in partnership with local communities. Part of your trip fee funds these projects. This experience is about building relationships with Ugandans, fellow group members and most importantly connecting with yourself. Suzy, a certified professional coach will lead the group in discussions about servant-leadership, compassion, empathy and kindness. This experience has the ability to be tranformative in all areas of your life! We welcome those who are flexible, ready to learn and prepared with an open heart to learn and grow beyond measure!
