Staying in the organization was one of the most amazing things I have ever done. I can't describe the way they respect everyone and the amazing thing they're doing with the children. You are always protected and taken care of by all the people that works for the foundation. The experience is amazing in so many ways but the most valuable is to fully immerse in the local life. Thank you family for making my stay something to forever remember Kisses from Galicia ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

It was a pleasure to work with you and well learning a lot from you. Thanks for choosing Igulu Foundation.



From the very first moment when picked up at the airport I felt so welcomed and after just I couple of days I could honestly say it was the best experience I had ever had in my life. I shared many experiences with the family, both adults and children, I got to know the culture and the community (even learned a bit of Lusoga) and I felt at home at every single moment. This is something I will always remember. Thank very much, the organization! Webale ino!

We are so glad that we were given the chance of being the first place to host you in Africa. Thanks for trusting us and thanks for everything you did for us. One love, one family.



From the first moment the staff and children were welcoming. I had a large room with a double bed, and very good meals. The village is far from the city, so it was a very good cultural experience, life in the community, and living day to day with the children, who are of different ages, eager to study and very intelligent. I collaborated with afternoon classes and games. We thought of ideas for new ways to bring resources to the Foundation and I made promotional arts. The volunteering is very flexible and Igulo gave me space to work in the way I thought best. I am grateful and recommend!!

Thanks to Gioconda who dedicated her life to our foundation. She did whatever it costs to see a new change at our foundation. She was a teacher of all seasons and she will be forever . She is a person who is after seeing the transition. Thanks for your endless care and love towards the kids at our foundation ❤️
