In 2013, Under the Same Sun hosted the first-ever summer camp for children with albinism in Tanzania, East Africa. Since then, UTSS has hosted two more summer camps, in 2016 and 2019. In 2023, UTSS, in partnership with Villages of Hope Tanzania (VOH) and local churches, we plan on hosting the fourth-ever summer camp in Mwanza, Tanzania. One of the primary goals of the camp is to let the students of the Learning and Career Advancement (LCA) program know that they are valued and loved. The camp will include a variety of focuses; examples include Bible, Sports, Drama, Music, and Career Development.
From August 1-14, 2023, our short-term service and learning team will be in Tanzania. The team is comprised of six locals as well as seven other North Americans who will work in partnership with Under The Same Sun, medical professionals, as well as local churches and volunteers in Mwanza. Please pray for this team for smooth travel logistics, for health and protection, and for effective ministry loving and teaching 240+ kids with albinism.
