Igulu Foundation is a wonderful space to volunteer. The staff is incredible as well as the children and the people who live in the community. The activities are flexible and you will be able to learn about the culture (games, food, traditions) and also the local language (Lusoga). Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work and share with you, you are amazing and we will not forget you!

Ricardo(Ngobi) with Estefania ( Nangobi) our kids are now having have better sleeping hours since you helped us to get the mattresses. We are now able to feed the kids in time because you helped us to construct the kitchen. Some of our kids are now in school because you helped us and sponsor and buy books, pencil to our kids.

Your stay contributed a lot to our foundation and our entire community at large.

Your names shall be always remembered in everything we do.
