Our Vision

HOW WE DEFINE THE ORPHAN

An orphan is defined as a child deprived by death of one or both parents -or- one deprived of some protection or advantage. At Mission Trips Uganda, we believe the orphan is a child or human who has no identity or relationship with the Lord.There is only one Heavenly Father that can heal and fill the heart.

Our goal is to meet the needs of the orphan in a physical, emotional, & spiritual manner. We help people who have no identity heal, gain a family that loves and cares for them, and help them to know their God-given purpose.

Our Values

WE VALUE: LOVE: - Believing that no child or person is ever lost. Every person is valuable. All people are worthy of love.

WE VALUE: INTEGRITY: - We hold integrity extremely high in our commitment to the efficient use of resources. We offer full accountability and transparency to our partners, supporters, and the public.

WE VALUE: STEWARDSHIP: - We are responsible for every shilling, dollar, penny, resource and person with which God entrusts us.

WE VALUE: CONFIDENTIALITY:-If people feel safe; they are more likely to be open about their feelings.

WE VALUE: TEAM BUILDING: -We seek to respect all members of our team, whether a short term volunteer or long term staff member. We work with people from many different backgrounds and strive to make everyone feel welcome and a part of the team through openness and inclusion. Any thought of superiority can destroy the team dynamic. We seek to use diversity as strength, making the best use of a wide range of talents and viewpoints.
