The African Adventure is a fundraising event for children hosten by Social Promise- a small, volunteer-only non-profit organization that raises money to support Lacor Hospital and St. Jude Children's Home in Gulu, Uganda.
The event is designed to teach children about Uganda, some issues facing families there and ways we all are capable of helping others, no matter how old we are. The African Adventure will reveal a glimpse into the lives of people living in rural Uganda. Children will have the opportunity to experience parts of everyday life in Gulu-carrying food in baskets on their heads, crafting toys from recycled materials, and sleeping under a mosquito net to decrease the threat of malaria. There will be African drumming, Ugandan storytelling, African crafts, and much more. Children will spend a day-in-the-life of a Ugandan child and in turn learn what it means to give back to those less fortunate.
