Christmas in Uganda 2018
A Christmas Missions Trip to Uganda, Africa! This short term missions trip was our biggest Holiday event of 2018. Our team helped to plan, organize and host a Christmas Party at Smile Africa Ministries, hosting more than 4,000 orphans and street children. While there, we also had the opportunity to share the love of Christ to several communities and local organizations through prayer and worship.
Worship and Arts Camp
At the RURO Worship and Arts Camp we will engage hundreds of orphans and street children, ages 2-17 years in worship and the arts. Our desire is to expose them to various art forms: singing, playing instruments, dancing, painting, photography and more. RURO hosts this week long camp at Smile Africa Ministries in Tororo, Uganda. Smile Africa currently cares for more than 400 orphans and street children each day through their feeding program.
In 2017, Reach Up Reach Out Sponsored 50 Widows living in the slums of Tororo, Uganda. Our goal is to double our impact in 2018, sponsoring 100 widows and vulnerable women. These beautiful women not only receive monthly financial support but are enrolled in a yearlong Program that allows them to learn skills to go on to create their own business. Women gather monthly to learn business skills, enjoy a meal and leave with hope, encouragement, sisterhood and more!
