  • Description

    Description

    I am a N.Z.   Born Australian and hold dual citizenship with these countries.
    I lived mostly in Australia and was a member of Christian Reformed church of south Gippsland in Victoria, Australia.
    With past experience and careers in disability, a smattering of teaching and horticulture, I become a missionary.

    Have previously done mission work in Warburton Western Australia, among the aboriginal people.
    After a few trips to Uganda starting in 2010; became a Missionary (permanently) in Uganda in 2015.
    I began a Christian mission.

    From this mission, I have gained 8 new sons and 2daughter who live with me and a deaf and mute boy who attends a special school in the district of Kaliro.

    The mission is like a tree with many branches.  There is care for orphans and disadvantaged children, Hospital visitation, which includes praying throughout the hospital, taking disadvantaged children to hospital with their hospital carers, and providing them with rehabilitation if required, teaching and practice of sustainable gardens, outreach through house to house evangelization, preaching and teaching and a support to pastors, including a class in theology, and many other things that just seem to pop up during the week.

    Most of the travelling I do around the Pallisa district where I live is by Bodaboda. Bodabodas are motorcyclists who for a few 1000 Ugandan shillings will take you anywhere. The food and customs, even the spoken English is all different from the western world.

    There are over 50 different African languages spoken here. I live in Pallisa town where the locals speak Lugwere, Iteso, Luganda and sometimes Swahili, however, English is taught in schools and you can make yourself understood.

    Ugandans take a long time in their greetings when they meet you.  Sometimes the conversation doesn’t even start for 10 or 15 minutes after a long exchange of greetings.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The volunteers will learn some phrases from local languages, particularly greetings.
    A photographer's paradise, plenty of colour and smiling villagers, particularly beautiful children.
    Cheap prices on local goods,.
    Learning to delight in whizzing round the country on a bodaboda...motorbike.
    Seeing villages that other tourists never get to see....sometimes in these villages they have never seen a white person!
    Eating local food....very different from anything you will get at home!
    Enjoying the beautiful music of the drums and adungu and akogo. Instruments which are very Ugandan.
    Get measured downtown by one of the many tailors ,and see the material of your choice become an outfit of your design, or maybe a Gomaz, the traditional dress of the women.

    Volunteers will learn that poverty is endemic here. That most people are subsistence farmers. That Ugandans are extremely gentle people with a big love for everyone.

    Aide

    All activities involve walking and a fair bit of boda-boda riding(Motorbike passenger).
    Every day is full on and each day is different.
    you will need to be fit and healthy and sing and dance at a moment's notice (nothing professional, just joining in with the locals.)

    A good knowledge of the Bible is a bonus as the children love to know Biblical stories, facts and figures. As well as Crafts, games, song, dance and acting.

    If possible bring all your requirements for specific activities as the range of goods in the shop is limited.

    Hospital visitation is visiting each patient in the Hospital and praying for them -you need to be compassionate and love praying.

    Sustainable gardening involves mostly weeding and upkeep of our garden in Pallisa.
    . Suitable footwear (not sandals),and jeans are fine. Sunscreen essentials are hats. Tools, morning and afternoon tea and lunch provided.

    There is no age limit for any volunteer.
