Embark on a life-changing journey to Bbira, Uganda -- a small, vibrant village in the Pearl of Africa. Here, you'll pour into Action in Africa, a nonprofit that does a multitude of community outreach services, like free HIV/AIDS testing, widow support groups, and children's programming to promote reading and arts. Additionally, AIA supports youth education and empowerment by sponsoring students who would otherwise not be able to attend school. You'll also serve at Baby Watoto by loving on orphaned and abandoned infants.
Experience a 2-day African safari adventure that features floating on the Nile River, hiking Murchison Falls and getting close to animals in the wild, including lions, elephants, giraffes and hippos!
Watch the Ndere Troupe capture the amazing cultural songs, dances and unique instruments from the 56 nationalities (tribes) of Uganda. Additionally, specific cultural immersion experiences are organized, like drumming, language and cooking classes. But, your entire time in Uganda will be a cultural experience! Buckle up!
MAJOR Bonus: We have arranged for our flight to have an extended layover in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. A stark contrast to what you'll experience in Uganda, Dubai is a study of extreme wealth. Take in futuristic architecture, the world's tallest building, spice and gold souks (markets), and Middle Eastern culture. The desert safari -- dune bashing, sand boarding, camel riding and henna tattooing -- is not a day you will soon forget!
