Volunteer trips are back after a long COVID hiatus! We're so excited to be offering the community a chance to travel to Uganda to learn about our programs. Give Us Wings Volunteer Trips are service trips with an emphasis on creating awareness about poverty and development in rural communities in Uganda. You will be inspired by the loving, hard-working people you meet and you will have opportunities to use your personal skills, talents, and enthusiasm to assist our partners in improving their lives.
