Sustainable agriculture w/ The Real Uganda

I had the most amazing Uganda experience, and I've already booked my return trip. I spent 2 weeks with a host family (Robert and Vivian) who work together with multiple communities to bring life-changing skills such as food safety, sustainable farming practices and basic family planning. Each day, we traveled to these small villages (~150 people) and worked side by side clearing land, planting seeds, and harvesting.

There was also the opportunity to take a few days and explore around some of the more touristy areas (like the Source of the Nile - zip lining - or go on safari)

I'd highly recommend this project to anyone!

Not joking about the above average rating

I can't begin to express how overly impressed i was. First of all the staff was over the top helpful. whenever i wanted to do something on the weekend they were there at my every need and helped me at my every step even when they had their weekend free they did not hesitate to help me. for example i had injured my foot on my last day and desperately needed crutches, one of my coordinators (Chira S.) took time out of his weekend and bought me some and brought them to me. All of the staff there helped me feel right at home, including the homestay. The homestay felt more of a home than my own home. the families there were so kind and warm and started to feel like my own family.
Now for the work, the work didn't feel like work- but not in a bad sense, in a sense that it was fun and interesting and new to me. Because now i can say i have cut bamboo, and planted it. on top of that bathing the elephants was over the top so incredible making me feel one with the elephant . the time i got to spend with them hands on and feed, love and watch them will forever leave a mark on my heart.
and Most of all, the other volunteers i met. i was there for a month so i got to meet more than one group. and each of them i will forever cherish the moments we all spent together. i will never forget them and now I'm glad to say how wide my friendship group is expanding all around the world.
This trip has left an impact on my life and has changed me for the better. i am so thankful i got the time to do this and i can't wait to do more.

Great experience

My partner and I both loved our time throughout this programme. We were both nervous having never done this kind of travelling before but once we got there the nerves didn't get a second thought. We were well supported the entire time and extremely well looked after by one of the local families (we are still trying to recreate some of the recipies). We expected to be taken out of our comfort zones and we weren't disappointed. Everyone went well out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure that we were able to experience as much as possible of Hill Tribe life in the time we had. In the classroom it was well structured and progressive learning with set patterns and of course the odd game. I would recommend tongue twisters for the older kids if entertainment is needed. We also got to inject some of ourselves into the lessons with photos of home and music. We saw a massive improvement in everyone's spoken English and their confidence in using their language skills. It is an amazing part of the world and if you have the time and inclination to volunteer your time I would highly recommend that you do so here.

My time in Thailand.

Before departing for my 2 weeks volunteering in Thailand.. I have no idea what to look out for, let alone what to expect. After my 2 weeks volunteering in Thailand.. i've learned new cultures, met new friend (from & outside of Thailand) and gained new experiences. I loved every single minute of my time in Thailand. Undoubtedly one of my best experiences abroad by myself! The workload was good and the tour guides/care takers were excellent!!

Volunteering in Thailand

Being a mature volunteer (over 60) can be quite intimidating - wondering how you will be received by much younger volunteers. However you don't need to worry as volunteers Rock! From vastly different cultures we come together to live with each other with a common goal - to try and give back a little to communities that don't have the good comfortable lives we have in the western world. And thrown into this mix is that we have a great time doing it!

I have had some exciting and exhilarating times exploring the island and very enjoyable and satisfying times helping children in the school to improve their English.

To be recommended to all - from 20 - 80!
