Travel My Way 2019 – Empowering Women in Uganda

Upcoming in November 2019 is a once-in-a-lifetime journey to affect real change for women in Uganda. As our valued client, we wanted to give you the opportunity to save a space before this extraordinary tour is revealed to the public by March.

Join Co-Founder of Executive Edge Travel Yvonne Verstandig and Suzy Zail, internationally published, award-winning author of The Tattooed Flower, The Wrong Boy and Alexander Altmann A10567… for a Travel My Way journey through Uganda.

This tour is for women focused on empowering women.

Yvonne’s Travel My Way tour to Uganda is inspired by Suzy’s new book I am Change (to be released August 2019). Inspired by real life, I am Change is the tragic but empowering story of how a young Ugandan girl finds her voice and the strength to fight for change.

Suzy wrote the novel after visiting Uganda to learn about girls’ rights. She discloses: “I asked hard questions and mined their most private and intimate moments and they forgave my ignorance and shared their heartbreak with such warmth and generosity. I hope I have told their truth.” 

Yvonne’s Travel My Way Uganda, illuminates these truths in the ultimate experiential way. Suzy and Yvonne have designed an itinerary which affords the opportunity to hear first-hand from the girls who informed I am Change, and to meet and support the aid organisations that are helping these girls achieve their dreams.

The tour will culminate with four days of adventure (including visiting remote tribal villages and gorilla trekking).
