Journey to Jamaa: Becoming Part of a Bigger Family

At the heart of Journey to Jamaa is an award-winning short film, "Jamaa." This film is inspired by the real life story of Margaret and Derick, two orphaned children from Uganda who make the journey from Kampala to Kasangombe in a heartbreaking bid to overcome poverty and experience hope.

Jamaa (pronounced juh-MA) is Swahili for family. Journey to Jamaa uses film to tell the story of two children from Kampala, Uganda, who undergo a harrowing journey to find their family. One important theme from the film is the way in which we can follow God’s heart for the poor by extending our family to include those in need—something we can do through World Vision child sponsorship.  Child sponsors help provide vulnerable children with access to essentials like clean water, improved nutrition, basic healthcare, education, and economic development assistance.

Join us for a discussion on the transformative impact of child sponsorship and learn how you can help create a brighter future for children in need.  

All are welcome! Men & Women (and children who are 6th grade and older.)
