Entrepreneur Trip to Africa

Hello friends!  This summer, for three weeks, I am going on an Entrepreneurial trip to Ghana and Uganda from June 22-July 17!  

I'll be travelling with a professor and a few others to discuss/ teach others how to kickstart businesses and think about the free enterprise system first at a birthing center in the slums of Uganda and then traveling to conferences in Ghana.  Included below are the details for each week of travel!  The trip in total will cost $2,500, which roughly $2,000 of that is airfare and the other $500 will cover housing and food expenses.  I will be working during the summer to earn as much as I can, however without support the trip will not be feasible.

If you would consider donating, I would greatly appreciate it!  I am super excited to enhance my understanding of technical ways to alleviate poverty and then to take that knowledge and use it in ministry in the future.  

Many thanks!


Itinerary:

In Uganda, I will spend a week working at a birthing center for poor mothers, helping with both medical aid and teaching them about business entrepreneurship. 

The following week, I will be assisting at leadership workshops, meeting with local entrepreneurs, and meeting local missionaries.
 
The last week I will spend in Ghana, where we will attend the International Journalist Conference, at which I may have the opportunity to present a paper.  We will also conduct another training session focused on showing the people how to implement business strategies.
