Summer Camp 2023

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.

Under the Same Sun is looking for volunteers to help run this camp smoothly. If you are interested, please check out our Trip Overview for more information and fill out our Volunteer Application Form if you wish to apply. If you have any questions about the trip or how to get involved, please reach out to Pastor Brad at  .

Under the Same Sun

Jericho has a long-standing partnership with Under The Same Sun, an organization that works at ending discrimination and violence against persons with albinism and facilitating social inclusion and participation. UTSS does this through advocacy and education.

UTSS acts globally, with a current focus on Africa and with roots and a history of working in Tanzania. While we are not sending a team in 2022 to East Africa, we are still committed to helping the people of Tanzania as well as persons with Albinism globally through our partnership with Under the Same Sun (UTSS).  

Under The Same Sun (UTSS), is a Christian charitable organization that is expanding its advocacy work beyond Tanzania because in most African countries, PWA are being discriminated against due to folklore arising around skin colour differences.

Here's a video highlighting some of our past work with UTSS in running summer camps for kids in Tanzania.
