The project is amazing and has a great positive impact on the lives of the people being served. Charles and his family welcomed me very well. I highly recommend this project.

Great experience! I can get just thank Charles (director), his family and the entire organisation for every day learning and caring. Uganda is a great country and its people just make it awesome! BOLI has a great purpose of helping street children and a great project of rehabilitating them so can be fitted into society again. I had a chance of experience it as close as possible, by visiting slums, doing outreaches, writing fund proposals and leaving into a traditional african family. This experience opened my mind to everything and made me set different priorities in life. Thank you BOLI!
