Fantastic program!

Not only the staff members will make you feel at home also the other volunteers.

Is it great working with a bunch of different people in other country and more if this country is Uganda.

You need to do this at least once in a lifetime. People from the North are very lucky and we need to share TIME and resources with others. They probably appreciate more your time than your money, seriusly.

Volunteering in Uganda was an enlightening experience for me. It is a culturally progressive country with amazing natural beauty. The people are wonderful and they generally have a positive and hopeful outlook about life. The togetherness and love I found from the local people was truly touching. I stayed in an orphanage/children's home in a town called Wakiso, and from the day I got there I felt appreciated. I felt that as long as you went into the experience with a caring attitude towards these less fortunate children, then you would inevitably have a positive impact on the children and the community as a whole. Plus the support you get from the coordinators (James and Joyce) is excellent. They are very kind, warm and supportive of each volunteer’s needs.
