I had an incredibly life changing and eye opening experience with Beacon of Hope Uganda. I was able to meet some of the most interesting and influencing people in my life. I could write millions of words about the details of my adventure but I would rather just boil it down to its essence and let you go explore the details on your own.

The staff was extremely helpful and made me feel comfortable and supported throughout my stay. I loved the evening hangouts and all the stories about Uganda's history and I also liked that we had time on weekends to hangout and really explore the area. I felt safe the entire time. I really enjoyed working with the kids.Overall very rewarding experience and I strongly recommend it.

My volunteer experience in Uganda was life changing. Thanks to Beacon of Hope Uganda, Isaac was extremely helpful and made me feel comfortable and supported me throughout the experience. The project-site team was also great. I also liked that we had time on weekends to hangout and really explore the area. I really enjoyed working with the kids and women. I would definitely recommend this experience to those who are missing out.

I really enjoyed my volunteering Project in Uganda. Beacon of Hope was everything I was looking for! Everything went well, the hope centre project and the school is well organized. There are about 3 Isaacs at the centre and all the teachers I worked with were very kind and caring. I was able to get to know the Ugandan culture very well.

The accommodation at the volunteer house in Mukono town was also comfortable and all meals well prepared, very tasty. 3 weeks was very short, every day at the hope centre was a new day for me, enjoyable and purposeful.

My experience in Uganda ranks as one of my all time greatest. I struggled at first to keep up with the daily tasks and the conditions but after just a few days I loved everything. Everyone there never stopped smiling and laughing, no matter the day or how they felt. It was inspiring.

Thank you BoHU team and see you soon!

I will admit it, I cried myself to sleep the first night. But don’t worry, I cried myself the last night for the opposite reason. Treat the people you meet here as family and they will do the same. I will miss Uganda and all my friends here so much. I am going to miss Rolexes (omelette wrapped in chappati with cabbage, tomatoes and onions), hopping on the back of a bodaboda (motorcycle taxi), the African time, the music, the dance, the “muzungu how are you?” from children, the avocadoes, pineapple, sweet bananas, using rain as an excuse to relax or coming late, having Isaac on my side as my bodyguard in nightclubs.
I am excited to return to a world where pedestrians have the right of way, but transitioning into the life at home will be strange. Thank you Isaac and the team for making my stay in Uganda meaningful
