Host an Event 

Since our first trip to Uganda we have been blessed with many opportunities to “tell the story” of Uganda.  We have been invited to Churches, Elementary and High Schools, Colleges, Religious Education Programs, Youth Groups, Rotary Clubs, luncheons as well as picnics and wine and cheese get togethers.  On each occasion, we have told the story about our beloved friends in Uganda and the amazing things God has done through our humble efforts.  We have shared video and photos, we have shown a variety of collectables we have gathered from Uganda and we have shared our passion and hope for what can happen when people freely share their gifts with others.  Some groups have taken up collections for our work, some have made donations, some have allowed us to build our mailing list.  In each and every case, the story has been passed on and God has done great things.  If you are willing to invite us, we would happily join your group to share our story and see what God will do with our efforts.

  • There is no cost in having Building a Bridge to Uganda offer a presentation; your presenter will work with you on any specific needs for your organization.

Not long ago, over 1,100 students and faculty listened to a presentation at Archbishop Ryan High School and they responded with incredible compassion and enthusiasm for the cause!

Archbishop Ryan High School Principal said:

"I thought the students really enjoyed the assembly and they were talking about it later in the day. Seeing how their peers in Uganda experience life, school, and activities daily really made an impact on them. Throughout the day, a number of students came to inquire about a service trip to the school."

Ryan's Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs said:

"I was surprised at how effected I was by the presentation. To hear that for people in Uganda, there is hope in Americans simply knowing that they exist was humbling. We have been blessed simply by where we are born but the people of Uganda live in hope and that is a beautiful thing."

Student, Class of 2021 stated:

"The presentation was very inspirational. One day, I hope to be a part of the work that Building a Bridge to Uganda is doing. This makes you realize how much God has given us and how much we can give back. It is amazing how people from my home, Pennsylvania, can make a difference half way around the world."

Student, Class of 2021 said:

"(The presentation) was inspiring and very powerful because it helps us to realize how grateful we should be for what we have. The talk strengthens our religious values and helps us realize how other countries need our help. It also inspires us to also do mission trips to other places and inspires us to give back to others who are not as fortunate."

Student, Class of 2021 said:

"The presentation inspires me to want to help others. It made me realize how grateful I should be and that there is more to life than just social media and small things that we worry about. It's a beautiful thing to see how we are all in this world together and that people care and are doing good things for others. Life is a gift and what we do with ours is our gift back to God. I want to do something much bigger than me to help others."

We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to share stories and be a voice for the people we serve in Uganda, and moved by the response of the students and faculty at Archbishop Ryan High School. We pray that this is just the beginning of a partnership that will continue to flourish and inspire move people to act.
