Considering a mission trip to REACH?
REACH welcomes visitors. Any short term mission work should complement our mission statement:
REACH works to rescue, rehabilitate and restore the African child back to God’s glory
Please prayerfully consider activities or projects for your group that further the goals of REACH. Some suggestions are:
- Share the Gospel through teaching, drama, or music
- Conduct healthcare activities
- Teach a seminar for teachers, parents or married couples
Your generosity will benefit many people with hope and improved quality of life.
What is required for travel to visit REACH?
The Entebbe Airport will be your point of entry to Uganda. It is near Kampala (the capital of Uganda), about two hours from the REACH Mission House in Jinja. Items needed to enter Uganda:
- A current passport valid for six months after your departure date from Uganda
- A current international inoculation certificate against yellow fever
- Travel to Uganda requires an East Africa Tourist VISA. This may be obtained at Entebbe Airport when you arrive and costs $100
What are the costs?
You will be responsible for all costs associated with the trip. This would include airfare, VISA charge, personal items and any other travel costs. REACH also charges fees for your trip which vary depending on group size and activities. Some items included in this fee are:
- Transportation to and from airport
- Local transportation expenses
- Lodging and meals
- Supplies or materials for any mission activities that are not brought with you
Consider fundraising for your trip. Many people cannot go to the mission field, but they can be a part of missions by being a sender or intercessor. They just need the opportunity!
What can I expect?
God has plans to bless you! Removed from your accustomed environment, this is a time to depend on God for His guidance in new situations. If you have never visited a developing country, you may be in for a shock. The sights and smells can be very different from home. Time schedules in Uganda are slower paced than in the USA. The sun’s rays are strong in equatorial Uganda, even during the rainy season. The mosquitoes can be fierce as well as carry malaria. The people are generally welcoming and friendly and everyone understands a smile – no matter what their language or culture.
