Good Overall...

My experience was good overall, although I had some complaints about my specific program (through Uganda Pioneers Association). I think this was unusual, but I was the only non-local person in my work group, which was nice in some ways but a little isolating. Pretty much everyone in the group was frustrated with the lack of a clear schedule, changes in plans, etc. Our work came out fine but we all felt we could have accomplished more with a little more organization and guidance. Go with an open mind and a willingness to take on some leadership yourself and it will be great!

Yes, I recommend this program
