Amazing time!

I stayed here together with my partner for 1 month and we had an amazing time! Josephine and Robert ( the owners) are the most friendly and welcoming people we ever met. They were always making sure that we had everything we needed, including tonnes of delicious food =) the accommodation is clean and nice and very close to the office. The people working here are very helpful and welcoming too! They organized our own little program here - according to our skills, so we could help the project in our best way. The people here in Uganda are very thankful for every help they can get and are more than happy to teach you their culture. Overall we had an outstanding experience here that we will never forget. Thanks Eco Agric Uganda for your time and that memory and please never stop what you are doing - the people need you!
We will miss you!

First and best

First volunteering experience in africa, we didn't know what to expect and what would happen next, but Josephine and Robert welcomed us in the best way we could immagine and make us feel at home even if we were very far from it, they surely know how to deal and welcome people and make them adapt into a completely different culture and they know how to do it in the smoothest way possible. The overall experience was amazing we managed to work with vulnerable people in the disadvantaged communities helping them with various HIV tests. When we changed location we started a project in building an eco house, it was really interesting seeing that a house can be build using only soil and sacks. We also could experience a great interaction with locals in villages we started being part of another project where we could teach people some skills that they could use to make they life easier and the amazing thing about it is that the changes are almost immediate, we are really happy about our experience and the opportunity that eco agric uganda has give us to improve at least some people's lives. And don't worry the fun is not missing with the other volunteers.
Thanks guys for this wonderful and enjoyable experiance in the Pearl of Africa.

Awesome

I went to Uganda for a month. From the outset I found everyone friendly, approachable and professional. When I booked my placement for voluntary work, a member of staff called me and answered all the queries I had. I stayed with a family in Itara where work was really rewarding and I shared a lot of laughs with the kids, despite the language barrier!
The homestay that I stayed with were so welcoming and made me feel like part of the family. It was such an eye-opener to see how a Ugandan family live day to day. It helped that the mum of the family was an amazing cook and I watched her a couple of times to get a few tips.
I will never forget my time in Uganda. On the first night, all the volunteers and staff went out for dinner, so you got to know like-minded people straight away and never really felt on your own. The flexibility of the project made the trip even more enjoyable as I knew that if there were any problems or if I wanted to move to another placement I could, and this gave me peace of mind.

It was worth

I’m really glad I joined Eco-Agric Uganda as a volunteer for three months in October 2016. The work and time there was enriching and it feels good to have contributed to the livelihoods of rural communities in I´ll also miss the like-minded, friendly, committed staff and volunteers at the organisation. The staff provided a good balance between serious work and fun.
The residence is very comfortable and secure and has an outstanding view. The garden has plenty of vegetables and a variety of tasty fruits.

Economic Empowerment of vulnerable households in Hoima district, Uganda

The work being done by the organisation with vulnerable house holds as regards economic strengthening is a great one. I observed many households that had started small enterprises to ensure that at least they get what to eat and sell a little. This is through kitchen gardening and rear of croilers.
