Review for The Real Uganda, Mukono, , Uganda

Rating: 5 stars  

Having just returned home from 6 weeks in Uganda, I am missing it already. I got the chance to spend a week with them in July of 2016, and fell in love, having to return as soon as I could, so I returned in June 2017. Not only is Uganda one of the most incredibly friendly countries in the world, but The Real Uganda works with different organisations around the country to place volunteers with projects that best suit you. I went to Hopeline organisation and spent 6 weeks doing something different every day, either at a local school Nkoko Bright Junior school teaching and hanging out with the kids, with the Myindo womens group making shoes, gardening, sewing and working on reconstruction of a home, or at Kasubii Medical Centre testing locals for malaria, HIV and more. Yet I still had the chance to go on safari, white water raft in the Nile, zip-line through the trees of Mabira Forrest and was taken to a wedding.
I have a family in Uganda now, with my host organisation Hopeline, and with Leslie the incredible, amazing founder of The Real Uganda. I can't wait to return, and I can't wait to pass on the beauty of Uganda to everyone, hopefully more people will be inspired to go.
