This was the most amazing experience of my life! Paul went above and beyond to make sure we were looked after. The work he is doing is unbelievable and making such a big difference to the people of the organization's lives. We spent our days cuddling, playing and teaching the kids as well as visiting their homes, painting the school and working with Paul to see how we could make the most difference. They all absolutely adore him and it's clear to see why, he's the most kind, selfless and determined person. I highly recommend visiting the organization, it will be the best thing you ever do.

Thank you so much Sophie . Am so much energized by your handwork you are so much flexible.
I can't imagine how much we have achieved in just two weeks its a lot. You are so amazing .Am sure together we shall make Manywa a better place for all the children and the community.



The host family were very welcoming and encouraging to try anything new. I had to change the dates I came due to flight complications and this was easily fixed with the flexibility of host. My time is Uganda was a happy and fun experience, I will miss the children and host family a lot and hope to go back again one day.
