We invite you to journey with us to Uganda to see firsthand the work being done.
Step out, and 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.
There are two ways to travel with Sole Hope:
Join a Sole Hope Experience Trip OR travel on your own Experience Trip coordinated by Sole Hope.

GENERAL TRIP PLANNING FAQ’s
Do I need a passport?
Yes. You will need a valid passport that does not expire within six months of your return to the United States. For example, if you return from Uganda on June 1 then your passport must not expire before December 2 of that year or you will not be permitted to travel.
What immunizations do I need?
The only required vaccine to enter Uganda is the Yellow Fever vaccine. There are other suggested ones like Hep A and typhoid.
I’ve been to Uganda before, can I take a day away from the team to visit friends or do my own thing?
When you visit with a Sole Hope team, you will need to stick with the team and their itinerary. You are normally given 1 free day to do shopping in town, so if you can make your plans on that day, then we are completely fine with that. Transportation and any additional costs associated with your separate plans are your responsibility. When you take a trip on your own you are welcome to schedule whatever you would like!
How old do I have to be to go on a trip? Can I travel without a parent?
We welcome anyone of any age to come on our trips with us or to travel to Uganda and serve with Sole Hope. In order to travel without a parent/guardian, you need to be 18.
What will we be doing in Uganda?
If you travel on a Sole Hope-lead trip you will have an itinerary that includes serving with Sole Hope daily – sometimes at a jigger clinic, sometimes at the Hope Center, and sometimes with the shoemakers and tailors at the workshop. Every trip is tailored to fit those each team.
