This was a wonderful eye opening place to experience the local culture and needs of Uganda. I volunteered at this school for 3 weeks and enjoyed every second of it. The kids were great and Paul, the host leader, took me on a Safari. Would definitely recommend for someone who desires perspectives on different parts of the globe! Priceless experience.
