Review

The best parts of my experience in Uganda were the relationships I had with my community, the Nakanyonyi Orphan Care and Women's Support Group, the time I spent with my host sister, and the opportunity to visit Murchison Falls National Park. I developed a passion for facilitation and the necessary skills to be a good facilitator. You get what you put into this program. There is very little accountability, which is more a factor of development work than this program, so it's up to you to keep yourself accountable and do you best work.

The site team are welcoming and overall great people. Their main focus is keeping you healthy and safe, which they do a very good job of. They do not have the time to help you very much with your project. Most of the time I enjoyed this freedom and lack of guidance, but if you are someone you needs more direction in your work this probably isn't the program for you.

I wish the program would be more transparent when it comes to what your money is being spent on.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
