Volunteering with Found of Mercy was an amazing opportunity. The majority of our time and energy was focused on the work we did with HODASSU, which was a really great, and really challenging experience. I was given the chance to teach a photography class to some of the children there, starting a basic foundation for future photography classes to build upon. Investing in the kids' lives was awesome. And learning to connect with people from a different culture, especially those with impaired hearing, was a beautiful experience. The Fount of Mercy staff I worked with before and during the trip to Uganda were all a huge support and encouragement. FOM really is such an organized, well-prepared and knowledgeable organization; and because of this, I felt very confident and comfortable in the traveling process, as well as in the various activities we took part in while In Uganda. Volunteering with Fount was awesome. And because of their deeply-rooted passion to help empower those in need in Africa, Fount of Mercy continues to bring about inspiration, growth, and hope for the future.
