It was a good experience! I really liked playing with the kids, who are unbelievable, and immerse in this new Ugandan culture! Unfortunately I arrived in the worst time in foundation because of some quarrels among the staff but even though, I would suggest this experience!

When I applied for this adventure I was sure that I wouldn't regret, but when it finished... I'm looking forward to come back as soon as possible.

I learnt lots of things but above all I found peace, love and happiness with all the kids and the members who helped me a lot in every question, initiatives and suggestions I had.

Special mention for Mama Flo and all of her kindness and love. She's one of the best woman I have ever met.

The kids are all amazing, you'll fall in love with them!!!

Thank you for all of these days, we will meet again very soon ♥

The Gayela Children Foundation is still a very young project with big aims and high motivation to improve their work every day! The love and the kindness of the whole Family is amazing! I absolutely enjoyed my time here so much and I will happily return some day! I can recommend this project to everyone who wants to get involved with an exciting project and a lovely family!
