Respond Rwanda 2017
Respond Rwanda is a partnership between SU Scotland and Urban Saints Scotland. A team of young people, with leaders will work alongside Scripture Union Rwanda, based in their centre in Kigali. Subject to confirmation, we anticipate the team flying out from Scotland in mid-July, and home around three weeks later.
The team will have opportunities to serve on children & youth camps, holiday club days, visiting school groups, and helping with some practical tasks such as painting or minor building maintenance.
Places are (likely) to be limited to around 12 young people, and each team member must be at least 16 years old at the date of travel. Each team member will be expected to raise funds, which will be in the region of £1750*. We have plenty of experience with fundraising and will support you in this process.
Team members will be chosen from applicants following a Selection day on Nov 19th 2016. All team members then gather for a training day in February and a weekend in June prior to the trip, as well as a celebration day to share and debrief the experience in late August.
Our teams in 2013 and 2015 consisted of young people and leaders from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Tain, Dunblane, Ellon, Leven, Callander, Bridge of Weir, Paisley, Dunbar, Perth, Aberdeen and Inverness. You could be one of the team for 2017 by applying today.

If you're over 16 and want to do something different and meaningful with your summer, then a Frontline mission team could be for you. You could be organising Bible discovery sessions for teenagers or leading craft activities for children in Romania. Or teaching English in Hungary. Or organising games and sports and caring for children on camp in Slovakia or Ukraine. It's guaranteed to be hard work - but also great fun. And there will be free time with opportunities for sightseeing to add to the enriching experiences of your stay. Visit the Frontline website to find out more.
