Global Citizen Journey had planned to travel to Uganda, ‘The Pearl of East Africa,’ in partnership with Uganda Martyr’s Orphanage Project in Tororo. The November 2020 trip has been postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic and now the ensuing hardships being experienced there. Food shortages, spiraling inflation and a host of political complications combine to put tremendous stress on our friends and colleagues there. We hope we will some day be able to join 12 North Americans with 12 Ugandans to live, eat and dialogue with one another while we engage with the local community and the children, as well as help launch a health centre that cares for UMOP students and community members. We will also meet with the Jewish Abayudaya community. (An optional post-delegation safari will be offered.)
Stay tuned for news of Global Citizen Journey’s next adventure to Uganda, Africa!
