Seeing the Work of the Amatisko Preparatory School is  Life-Changing reviewed by Mark Kavanagh
"In August 2016 I had the opportunity to see the incredible difference that the Amatisko Preparatory School is making in the lives of its students. It was truly touching to see the love and devotion that makes the Amatisko School a place like no other. I worked with staff from Amatisko - Alex and Alphonse, and can honestly say that I have never met more dedicated, caring people in my life.
To attend our BioSand Filter Training course, every morning Alex would get up early to feed the children he has adopted, teach school from 7:30 until 9:30, attend the classes we were teaching from 10 until 5, return to school to de-brief the teachers and then return home to feed and care for his extended family.
Alphonse was equally amazing helping to manage our project. While taking our course and helping manage the project, Alphonse was running the Rabbit Joint, promoting Go Organic Africa and keeping bees.
Alex and Alphonse are representative of the incredibly dedicated teaching and support staff that makes Amatsko such a special place. While the classrooms were rustic and the teaching supplies minimal, the curriculum on display appeared sophisticated and the students very attentive and well-mannered. The students at Amatsiko Preparatory School were obviously very happy, well fed, well taken care of, and very appreciative of the opportunity that the Amatisko School provides for them.
I cannot adequately express my appreciation for the dedication and on-going commitment of the staff of the Amatsko School. I saw for myself that they are making a incredible difference in the lives of hundreds of children and doing so with virtually no supplies and limited financial support. I saw for myself how EVERY dollar we donated to Amastisko went directly to buying food for the children.
I encourage you to do what you can to help the Amatisko Organization- donate money, raise funds or perhaps even volunteer your time in Uganda! I encourage you - just do it!

Most sincerely,

Mark Kavanagh,
President

What an outstanding service opportunity this was! reviewed by Nate Marzen
"What an outstanding service opportunity this was for me! I am a social worker from the U.S., and I have young children of my own that limited my time abroad-- but my weeklong period of volunteering in rural Uganda with ACO-Africa proved to be very powerful. Its director John is a dynamic, creative, tirelessly driven servant of individuals and families troubled by various areas of need. Some Ugandans spoke my native tongue of English, while many others did not--though language and culture gaps were bridged by ACO staff, so that I could readily get involved and assist in a number of ways, ways that I felt comfortable. Within my short time there I quickly was availed the opportunity to spend time with some amazing foster teens; I supported case management services of HIV affected children during home and school visits; I helped teach poor, HIV affected parents "economics 101", as they sought to develop sustainable sources of income for their families; and I helped lead a talk given at a local prison, as we had a rich discussion with inmates about ways that they might avoid re-offending in the future. And of course what made these experiences so great, were the amazing people I encountered: from ACO staff, to the other talented (British) volunteer, and of course to the kind, welcoming, gracious people we served. In all, I learned so much during my visit, and am really grateful for the opportunity to have contributed in a small way to the great work that ACO does for the needy of rural Uganda. "
