My stay at the organization was fantastic. I assisted them with Social Media and taught computer skills. Every day I could join activities like playing football with the youth. There was also enough time to explore the surroundings and meet a lot of locals in Mpigi Town. A great place to learn, teach and explore Uganda.

Wow! This is a place where you know you'll come back. Can't put into words how nice everybody treated me and how nice people are in this community. It's amazing what they are doing here and you'll want to be part of it long after you left. Moses is an inspiration and a great human being, he has the vision of a true leader and he's a role model for everybody there. Thank you for letting me be part of your family! 馃

La organizaci贸n es una experiencia perfecta para viajar por primera vez a 脕frica, Mpigi es un sitio seguro y toda la comunidad de la organizaci贸n cuida de que est茅s bien. El director de la asociaci贸n nos cont贸 sus necesidades. en este caso en el programa de empoderamiento de la mujer y me dej贸 libremente crear y llevar a cabo el programa, ya que estoy formada para ello, estoy muy agradecida de la experiencia, fue un trabajo intenso pero dio sus frutos. Gracias a su mujer Kirabo conseguimos un safari a la mitad del precio de otras agencias, adem谩s nos llevaron de excursi贸n y a comer
