World Mission

 

TAB WORLD MISSION AFRICA 12  UGANDA – KENYA    5th –  22nd October

We have now placed just a few photographs (226) on The Tab’s Facebook page

Here is our plan is to fly from Newcastle to Entebbe, Uganda.
The team will work in Kampala, Uganda, until the 13th, then fly on to Nairobi, Kenya, to work in Kibera.

Goals

The principal purpose, as on previous mission trips to Africa, is to provide support for some of the world’s most vulnerable children. In addition during this 2012 trip there is an opportunity to serve and support women and children who are imprisoned in Luzira, Kampala’s maximum security prison.

Requirements

Members of the team will cover their own traveling and accommodation costs. Additional finance to enable educational, medical and material ministry costs will be raised with the support of the Tab and friends. The team will transport as many supplies as possible. However many of the necessary supplies and skills will be purchased/ employed locally as this supports the local infrastructure.
