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.
