The best thing you'll ever do

My experience with ELI was phenomenal. You would never know it was a non-profit by the service you receive. The staff was amazing - they provided me with all the information I needed and answered all my questions leading up to my trip. You can tell they really care about their volunteers! They're dedicated to making sure you have a great place to volunteer and live and explore. They even followed my social media while I was abroad! My experience in Iganga was amazing. I worked in the hospital and got to shadow doctors and assist patients in tons of different wards (male, female, maternity, surgery, pediatrics, etc.). My family was lovely and took such great care of me and cooked such tasty food! The town was cute and easy to get around and fit things. I could not recommend this program or ELI in general any higher. If you are considering volunteering abroad please please go through ELI. I promise you will be sooo thankful you did!
