We shared wonderful moments with the kids telling me their stories outside at the fire place where every night they were keen to teach me their local dances, culture and the Ugandan ludo game. I think this is special. I was given the local name Nahlugo, so I became half Ugandan.

We enjoyed our visit and experience with the orphanage school in Kasala and hope more people go there to help this village school. In our hearts still thirst to go back and work with Isaac, Lilian and teacher Moureen.

The food was great but the fruits were extremely delicious and note this, Uganda has the best pineapple in the world. I also miss the rolex (kind of an omlette) chappati, eggs and onions.

Would be great if I could share my personal experience with someone. Do contact me if you want to know more.

It’s a great experience for those who love to travel and love kids, whether you know a lot of English or just a little it helps you bond with other volunteers, even the kids too! They don’t just want to communicate with you, but use you as a human jungle gym! But all joking aside, I know I learned more than what I could possibly ever teach them.

Beacon of Hope Uganda looked like the perfect organization to go with from when I first read about their inspirational stories on their blog. Plus when you are there, you are the mzungu, mzungu.. Locals will call you that, I think it's funny!
