Why are we going? To act justly, show mercy and to walk humbly with God. Heartfelt Hope wants to encourage people to go with a heart for God, a passion to serve and a love for people.

Who is organising this trip? TRANSFORM trips are organised and overseen by Heartfelt Hope, a registered NGO and charity in Australia and Uganda, but also working in some other countries. Heartfelt Hope has a focus on faith, health and education.

TRANSFORM short term mission trips are to inspire others to live boldly for Christ, to bring much needed resources and encouragement. TRANSFORM is for people who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of people in disadvantaged communities across the world.

Where will we be going? To the South East of Uganda in the Tororo, Malaba, Busia and Igunga area. This is an area Heartfelt Hope has already been working in partnership ministry by coming alongside some local churches, villages, providing leadership training opportunities, running youth events, holding community health & wellbeing seminars, and helping establish small schools and medical clinics.

As part of the trip, there will also be a couple of day outings to allow you some time out to relax.

What will we do? We will be directed to various areas and local opportunities around Uganda also based on the gifts and abilities of those in the team. We want to encourage each individual to find an area or project they wish to be part of, something that allows them to use their gifts and abilities to minister to these people out of humility and compassion. Even if you feel you do not have a specific skill to offer, you are still valuable to the team and there will be a number of opportunities and projects to allow you to connect with people and the local communities
