November 7-20, 2018 – Christmas Magic

Sylvia’s Children Invites You to Bring Christmas Magic to African Children!

For nearly 15 years each holiday season, U.S. travelers have embarked on the trip of a lifetime to a remote village in the East African nation of Uganda, on a volunteer visit led by New Jersey-based nonprofit Sylvia’s Children (www.sylviaschildren.org).

Their mission:

to help bring Christmas cheer to more than 1,000 Ugandan children attending the Mbiriizi Advanced Primary and Day Care School, many of whom are orphans. At the end of the trip, however, not only are the children filled with the Christmas spirit but the travelers as well. A traveler from last year’s Christmas trip said, “Thank you, Sylvia, for this wonderful gift. Christmas will never be the same after this experience.”

Sylvia’s Children will once again be embarking on this life-changing trip next fall, and dates have now been announced: November 7 -20, 2018.

The organization, started by businesswoman and philanthropist Sylvia Allen, is inviting those interested in joining this year’s trip to now sign up while spaces last. Each year’s trip, which includes a special Christmas feast and holiday party, fills up quickly.
