I will be embarking on a mission to help children in an orphanage in Uganda, Africa from mid-February through early March.  It's not often that we have the time and flexibility in our lives to donate to the less fortunate.  At this time, I'm lucky to have a little bit of both. 

However there are numerous cost to this trip including, Visa's, Registration Fees, room and board, flights, insurance, vaccinations/medications, transportation, etc.  If you would like to help sponsor this trip, you may do so below....every little bit will help.   


Uganda has thousands upon thousands of orphaned children. Most of them have been orphaned as a result of the current HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda. The IVHQ Uganda orphanage project places volunteers in orphanages to assist local staff in the day to day running of the orphanages. The volunteers play a key role in ensuring these orphanages can operate effectively.

Thank you in advance for any amount you can donate.
