Uganda lovin'

This trip was a really wonderful experience. It was a treat to find so much companionship between the volunteers of all ages here and be able to walk away with so much inspiration and experience. From relaxing after a long day of planting trees playing Uno and drinking a few beers with our NGO's, exploring the city, checking out quirky restaurants and street food stalls together, car rides with endless laughs... Even during the planting it was unbelievable the appreciation and support we received. Not to mention the enthusiasm of all the community members and children planting by our sides. I would highly recommend this trip. The only thing I would say that made me feel unsafe was the country's current ongoing debates on the legality of Uganda's LGBTQ rights. This is a serious issue in Uganda right now however I never felt in harms way (as a queer woman) wherever I was. There are some cultural differences to look out for as with traveling anywhere... But otherwise I would say this program ran very smoothly with very little complaints.
