For two weeks, I was volunteering with a women’s group located in Kasaana. The women made handicrafts such as mats, beads, and bracelets. The project was flexible; I was involved in activities such as product development, fundraising, and improving marketing. I found this experience very rewarding, as I was working directly with the women. I was able to meet many amazing individuals during this trip. I personally enjoy hands-on activities, so this was a very enjoyable experience! I stayed with Godfrey and his family during my time. Not only did they prove that Ugandans were very hospitable, but they were also very accommodating. Godfrey was very well informed and flexible. He let me see different aspects of Uganda, by introducing me to a local school, the women I volunteered with, and also different cultural aspects. Everyone I had interacted with was very friendly and eager to learn about my culture as well. With this project, I know my impact will be going very far! To conclude, I had an amazing time filled with culture and empowerment. I highly recommend!
