  • Descrição


    My name is Kule. I am 35 years old. I'm trustworthy, adventure/nature loving, and enjoy making new friends. I'm the head of a children and women's project in the Ruboni community located in the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda. This project was formed with the objectives of charitable services to the orphans, disabled children, those in need, women, and conservation of our natural habitat for the development of tourism and culture in the community.

    We carry out activities geared towards enhancing education mobilization, promoting childcare initiatives, promoting local community hygiene and nutrition, conducting seminars/workshops on young girls' education, community sensitization on soil and water conservation. Additionally, we host a tourism information center, undertake games. sports, and other activities among the youth, as well as run a craft shop comprising of various artifacts and cultural regalia.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Volunteers will learn about the traditional life of the Bakonzo people who are living at the foothils of the Rwenzori Mountains as well as the history of the Ugandan tribes. You will experience the reality of living in Uganda. Uganda is actually more a diamond in the rough, unpolished but potentially shining bright, but you will learn to discover and appreciate this hidden gem. There's a reason Uganda is nicknamed the "Pearl of Africa".

    Life here is simple and peaceful. In contrast to the fast and industrialized Western world, you will be brought back to the essential of life: living it. Time does not always have to be filled here, living life in a rush is no priority. Where in the developed world time is very costly, here time is something that simply passes by while you're living your life. Food is produced locally and handcraft is still king. The people will teach you about their traditions, customs, and talk about their wishes and you will be surprised of the similarity between their wishes and yours.

    When you get here you will see a different, simple way of life, and we are certain that your experience here will change the way you look at life, which will be of value for the rest of your time on this earth.
