This was my first volunteering experience and I couldn't have chosen better place to dedicate my time. Emma and Lidia are the most committed person I've known, completely focused on improving the life of many kids, giving them the tools to become better citizens and investing in their knowledge. Projects like these are the reason to cross the world to be part with. I loved the passion they demonstrated and the way they receive their volunteers as well. They made me feel as part of this special family that you don't want to say goodbye at the end. Thank you Emma and Lidia from my heart! :)

I had no idea what to expect when choosing this volunteer opportunity but it was an amazing experience. Lydia and Emma made me feel right at home and I loved getting to know all the kids that live there as well and will miss them dearly! Lydia and Emma are amazing people who are doing SO much to change children’s lives. They’re incredibly selfless and have become a second family. We will meet again someday! Love you all 💛

My experience here was great and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to go to Uganda. There were however some communication issues. I applied for the cooking position thinking most of the time I would be doing that. Yet you have to look at all the experiences Emma offers, because you will do every single one of them. It was great, but be aware of it so that you don't have false expectations. Apart from that it is best that you plan your free time, because Emma will be to busy to show you around. Apart from these little problems, I had a great time!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED MY 28 DAYS IN UGANDA WITH MY HOST EMMA. These 4 weeks have been the most wonderful weeks and I am already missing them. Right from my arrival to my last day, everything was nearly perfectly. I miss the school, the kids and Wabulenga. Thank you Emma! ♥️
