I have been so blessed to find Ronald's project!! Ronald and Justine are amazing! They have a really good heart! They always made me feel at home, and they were taking care of me all the time. Their kids are lovely, and they're part of me as well. We have many memories together, and I feel proud to say I have my Ugandan family now! They are doing a really great job and they are inspiring many people with this beautiful labour! I love and miss them so much!! It's been my best experience sharing with kids and being immersed in African culture as all the community in general made me feel special!

If you are wondering if you should volunteer at the organization, don't doubt it twice and definitely go for it. Living with Ronald and Justine, the hosts, and their children, was just like being at home. They treated us like we were part of their family since day one and always had their back. Food was amazing and accommodation was too. At the organization you completely immense in Ugandan culture and learn about their traditions. As a volunteer you get to be part of school teaching, and you truly make an impact on the community, which is such a heart fulfilling experience.

I loved my stay :) Everyone was super nice and welcoming and you'll immediately feel comfortable. They were incredibly open for different ideas or opinions and extremely mindful. The food was amazing and they make sure that you have some options and help you experience local food and culture. Everyone I met was kind. Thank you so much!

The whole experience exceeded our expectations, we could not wish for a better one! The accommodation was super clean and spacious and offered us privacy. We ate home cooked delicious traditional food which catered to our wishes and needs:) The program was very diverse. We got to know the women community; their homes, stories and businesses, worked with the local police and prison, visited the church and the local medical facilities... We had such an amazing time with Ronald, Justine and their whole family that we're gonna go back to spend Christmas with them! Love you!
