    1. Hi Marion!
      I’m glad you reached out, and I believe you’ll have an incredible time in Uganda and Rubuguri! What organization will you work for in Rubuguri? and what will you do?

      I first found Rubuguri when I travelled with a tour in Uganda, with G-Adventures. We spent two nights, in Oct 2015, in the village when we visited the mountain gorillas. The guide we had, had about a year or so earlier started an organization called Footsteps Through Africa, and a part of the organization included charity work in the village. in different forms. I was travelling around in Africa at the moment and in February 2016 I came back to help Jo Cooper(the founder of the organization) a few weeks in the village. He was not there since he worked elsewhere, but I had my amazing contacts in the village, Ben and Gordon, helping me out. I taught at a local school, helped with the process of opening a library and being in contact with different people for future initiatives. I’ve written a few posts in English during my stay there, I don’t know if you’ve read them but you’ll find them here (https://josefinestal.com/tag/rubuguri/).
