Group service Trip project GST brings groups together to collaborate with community development organizations to address pressing development issues. GST Groups are highly immersed in the culture as they work alongside local leaders and live with host-families.

The projects are structured as short-term, high impact opportunities. In order to ensure a productive and mutually beneficial experience, FSD Jinja-Uganda provides intensive coordination both before and during the program. For GST, project design begins before the group arrives in country. FSD Jinja-Uganda staff team collaborates with the organization to develop a project that can benefit from the skills and interests of the group. The itinerary and logistics are arranged and agreed upon prior to the group’s arrival with input from community members and group participants. At the same time, these projects include a certain amount of flexibility to allow for creative problem solving and skills application that is unique to each group.

Service Learning projects are a customizable option for student-led alternative breaks, faculty-led initiatives, corporate employee service initiatives or even groups of friends and families. We recommend groups of six or more in order to have an effective impact in a short amount of time. The projects customized for each group so they vary in length, size, and development issue. What they all have in common is they combine outside ideas and skills of the group with local knowledge and resources from the community. For smaller groups who want to spend at least 4 weeks in country, check out our Group Engage program
