It was a really good experience, the kids are really warm, they always make you feel at home and you always have fun with them.
Emma is a really good host, he is fun and very gentle.
This is an experience that I recommend to all volunteers.

I will forever value the opportunity to have such an unforgettable experience at Rebuild Hope. Emma, and all the kids welcomed me into their home with an incredible hospitality on the very first day. They do an amazing job getting you involved with every aspect of day-to-day work at the foundation and they are more than willing to accomodate and plan around any specific activities that you want to try during your time here. I learned an unbelievable amount of new skills (farming, cooking, teaching, construction, and some lusoga). Do not make the mistake of letting this experience pass you by!

I 100% recommend this trip for so many reasons! First of all, I have never felt home as fast as I did here, Emma and Lydia are so kind and lovely that makes you feel part of the family. The kids bring so much joy to the house with their games, laughs and conversations. The food always tastes amazing and they make it with so much love and care. The environment is always happy and sunny, make sure you always look at how pretty the blue sky and the stars are here!!! Also, Emma is such a good host and will show you around as much as he can! The only bad part is that you never want to leave! Haha

I felt at home since the first moment living with the kids and being envolved in their life. There are no words to describe that experience.
Unfortunately, I had many problems with Emma. He thinks that volunteers are objects and he owns them. He was talking about "contracts" when theres are not any. He just cares about the money; not about the job that you are doing. He is throwing many people away from the foundation. Just because they don't think in the same way as him.I hope that the bad part of my review doesn't change your mind about going because you won't regret it at all.

She is the worst volunteer we have had at our project with her friend, she thought she can rule our project, with being in love with their boyfriend, she wasn't respectful to our rules thats why she left before and we have not reviewed her .
Sorry your one review out of the 15 cannot affect us due to your own interests
And sorry if you don't respect our rules, I always told you find another place

I have traveled a lot and this was my most favorite trip. I was welcomed with open arms and such hospitality. Emmanuel and Lydia were amazing hosts and the children are wonderful. I got to see a lot of culture and learn so much. Teaching the children of the community was so special. I can't wait to be back and stay for a longer time. I am so thankful for this opportunity and getting to stay in the beautiful village. Thank you Emma and everyone on your team!
