Short-Term Trips with Tutapona
March 4-9, 2018 : Visit Tutapona in Uganda
Purpose of this trip: Participants will meet with Tutapona's leadership team in Uganda, learn about the history of Tutapona and the context in which Tutapona is working in Uganda, and visit one of the refugee settlements where we work. The trip will equip participants to return home to their own churches and social networks and raise awareness of the global refugee crisis and Tutapona's mission to bring hope and healing through trauma rehabilitation. First and foremost, this is a learning trip, not a service trip. You'll meet people, you'll hear their stories, you'll observe a trauma rehabilitation session in action, and you'll learn how to be an effective advocate for refugees and for Tutapona's mission when you return home. That's where we need you most!!!
