There are no words that can describe the amazing experience that I had. It was my first volunteering so I was a little nervous but Lydia and Emma made sure that I was comfortable, safe and happy. The kids in the school, the teachers and the boys at home are so loving and they will always help you! Everyone will treat you with absolutely respect and love. If you come if open mind and heart it will be rewarding and enriching experience. If you are having doubts to decide whether to go or not: just go!!! You will have the best time. Now I have a family in Uganda and i will definitely come back!
