Sole Hope Experience: Journey of Hope

We invite you to journey with us to Uganda to see firsthand the work being done. Come experience HOPE!

This experience will give you opportunities to learn, serve, connect, and fall in love with Uganda and its people. Our hope is that you walk away from this trip with a greater understanding of the problems facing the people of Uganda, an appreciation of the unique culture and country in which they live, a deeper connection to the mission of hope, and a stronger desire to advocate on behalf of those in need.

*At this time we are only accepting applications for trips from those residing in the USA and Canada.  We want to encourage anyone that lives in other countries to email for more information about how you might join us in Uganda!

On this journey you can expect to:

  • Visit the Sole Hope facilities and connect with the staff

  • Participate in a Jigger Clinic

  • Volunteer at the The Hope Center

  • Explore Jinja town and the Source of the Nile

  • Get dirty (there’s nothing quite like the red dirt roads of Uganda)

  • Be challenged

  • Be changed

  • Have a one-of-a-kind experience

If you are ready for all of these things and more, now is your chance!

Amy Cates

From an early age, Amy desired to see more of the world and all it has to offer. Little did she know that she would feel so at home in a place like Uganda, Africa, but that’s just how her story goes. After her first trip to Uganda in 2013, she knew she would be back as often as she could. Amy has a great love for Uganda, its landscapes, its culture, and its people. She describes it as contagious, vibrant, communal, complex, and captivating. She learns more every time she visits and has a passion for sharing her love of Uganda with others. When she is not leading trips, Amy works from her home in Alabama serving as the Director of Development for Sole Hope. Her free time is filled with family, sports, homework, books, music, and Netflix. If you are looking for a unique experience that will stretch you, change you, challenge and enrich you, Amy invites you to join her.
