Uganda TEFL & Teaching Experiences

"The children of the school were also wonderful and I loved spending time with them, and one of the reasons I intend to go back to Uganda is to visit them. I think all of the volunteers had a great time, both during the day and the night. The nightlife was wonderful, dancing to the beat of the African drums around a campfire and going to the town to have drinks and chat with the locals. I am so glad that I took part in the volunteer program and I am very sad to have had to leave. It was an experience that has given me many happy memories and it is one which I can’t wait to repeat". - Sam, UK
