1. I love the community feel wherever we’ve been and there is a real togetherness. I love that the people are thankful and grateful for what they have and that the community is at the centre of their lives – particularly faith communities. "[Jinja is] a very good place and it would have been good to explore more of it and to experience the street vendors foods. The cultural sites are beautiful and the people friendly. Uganda: love it! So hot sometimes from December to March but bearable. I love the community feel wherever we’ve been and there is a real togetherness.

Norway seems more individualistic and more selfish and has less sense of community than Uganda. Food is great, love the use of spices but it would have been great to experience more street food. Love the vibrancy and colour of Ugandan culture and this seems to add to the general happiness displayed by the children and local people. The HH2VCBYSKP team have been great and very welcoming and NALYA has helped to make the experience and adjustment easier. He is extremely supportive and approachable man and has responded to queries, concerns and observations positively and promptly. NALYA has been brilliant and it has been great to have a Ugandan like him show us around and share here experiences. Stella cooking is awesome and so tasty. Robert has mobilized children to learn Traditional Music as a way of transcending poverty. Stella the house is clean, tidy and comfortable and has enough Western aspects to make the transition smooth. Nice place to stay. Take a lead to volunteer and change lives.
