Come serve at Cherish Uganda!
God has moved in incredible ways here, and we want to invite you in to be a part of our story and a witness to how He is working here at Cherish Uganda.
There are three ways in which your team can serve:
1. Live the Rhythm
If you want a highly relational experience, come “Live the Rhythm” at Cherish for a week and experience first-hand what life is like on-site by helping and working alongside our kids, moms, teachers and other staff. LTR is not so much an introduction to Cherish, but a ministry of presence, relationship and service together. Cherish is an operating village, where help is always appreciated to complete the many tasks that are required in order to maintain day-to-day life here. In an attempt to build community and see the Gospel of redemption and healing lived out at Cherish, we invite you to bring a team and experience an educational, participatory and two-way exchange between the Cherish family and your team.
Each team member will rotate during the week experiencing Cherish Primary, Cherish Hospital, the Homes, the Farm, Poultry, Security and Compound. Team members will join in on the tasks already at hand, all the while connecting with the hearts of our staff. Once you experience serving in this capacity, you will desire nothing less.
*If your team has an area of expertise (i.e. your team is made up of medical professionals, teachers, etc.) then we will match your skill-set to a need and have you serve at Cherish in that respective area.
2. Host a Kids Camp
We are looking for teams that are gifted in children’s programming. During certain times of the year we endeavor to run camps on and off-site and we could use your talents to help come, plan, host and lead these camps for groups of children that we serve. Our staff would work with your team to create a week for a group of children or teens.
Camp would take place at an off-site location, so that the kids can escape from the noise of their world and encounter Jesus through laughter, entertainment, activities, rest, good conversation, and all that your team has to offer. We would collaborate with your team on the theme and focus for your weeklong camp, but would give you the freedom and responsibility of making this week one to remember for the campers!
3. Construction Trip
If building is your thing, then we have a building project for you! In 2016, we hope to complete several building projects and we need your help to do so!
If we deem it safe for the child, we try and hope to see Cherish children reunited with any extended family that we can find and reunite them with. However, some of these families do not have ideal living situations. Before we resettle a child with their extended family, we make sure the conditions are safe and livable.
If your team comes on a construction trip, you will spend a few days at Cherish Uganda and a few days off-site, in a village, where your team will work from start to finish on a building project. This authentic, cultural experience is great for a team that is not scared to get their hands dirty. At the end of the week you will have given a family a gift of a transformed home. This option gives you the opportunity to not only bless our organization with your help, but to bless a child, a family, a village community, and generations to come!
