I will admit it, I cried myself to sleep the first night. But don’t worry, I cried myself the last night for the opposite reason. Treat the people you meet here as family and they will do the same. I will miss Uganda and all my friends here so much. I am going to miss Rolexes (omelette wrapped in chappati with cabbage, tomatoes and onions), hopping on the back of a bodaboda (motorcycle taxi), the African time, the music, the dance, the “muzungu how are you?” from children, the avocadoes, pineapple, sweet bananas, using rain as an excuse to relax or coming late, having Isaac on my side as my bodyguard in nightclubs.
I am excited to return to a world where pedestrians have the right of way, but transitioning into the life at home will be strange. Thank you Isaac and the team for making my stay in Uganda meaningful

I really enjoyed my volunteering Project in Uganda. Beacon of Hope was everything I was looking for! Everything went well, the hope centre project and the school is well organized. There are about 3 Isaacs at the centre and all the teachers I worked with were very kind and caring. I was able to get to know the Ugandan culture very well.

The accommodation at the volunteer house in Mukono town was also comfortable and all meals well prepared, very tasty. 3 weeks was very short, every day at the hope centre was a new day for me, enjoyable and purposeful.

My experience in Uganda ranks as one of my all time greatest. I struggled at first to keep up with the daily tasks and the conditions but after just a few days I loved everything. Everyone there never stopped smiling and laughing, no matter the day or how they felt. It was inspiring.

Thank you BoHU team and see you soon!

To my Isaac,

Oh man, what can I even say to thank you?

Nothing seems adequate. Thank you so much for giving me a full tour of your country and linking me to work with many amazing projects! It has been a super fun month traveling around the country with you. From the 12-seater car in Kamwenge, receiving Robyn (the chicken), Trans-cargo bus journey, the boda-chicken dance, and all the other hilarious moments along the way.

Thank you for making me fall in love with Uganda! See you in 3 years!
