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. "

Just Empowering! reviewed by Shelby Chau
"For two weeks, I was volunteering with a women’s group located in Kasaana. The women made handicrafts such as mats, beads, and bracelets. The project was flexible; I was involved in activities such as product development, fundraising, and improving marketing. I found this experience very rewarding, as I was working directly with the women. I was able to meet many amazing individuals during this trip. I personally enjoy hands-on activities, so this was a very enjoyable experience! I stayed with Godfrey and his family during my time. Not only did they prove that Ugandans were very hospitable, but they were also very accommodating. Godfrey was very well informed and flexible. He let me see different aspects of Uganda, by introducing me to a local school, the women I volunteered with, and also different cultural aspects. Everyone I had interacted with was very friendly and eager to learn about my culture as well. With this project, I know my impact will be going very far! To conclude, I had an amazing time filled with culture and empowerment. I highly recommend!"
