It was my first single trip and I'm sure I'll never forget it. Children are wonderful, full of love and warmth. People are friendly and positive. If you want to experience real life in Africa then this experience is perfect for you.

I also encourage you to support the foundation in the further construction of the school in the village!

You can find all the information you need on the foundation's instagram - https://www.instagram.com/rebuildhopefdn/

First. You are about to enter a real family. A grupo of people who do share love and cooperate for a greater good. They are so kind, and will assist you with everything you need to feel that you are making a real change. With them you can make the difference. Everything is the right conditions for you to succeed. I real do advise you to meet them and volunteer there. No words. No bad things to say. No advises to give. It’s home, a place where you can work and feel comfortable. You will, for sure, feel loved.

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
