Below are a few impressions from the students who visited Mityana in February 2019.
“…This trip to Uganda was by far the most amazing thing we’ve done. It was a massive eye-opener and really taught us a range of different lifestyles and cultures we would never have been able to learn about fully at school, as you really need to be there to experience it fully.”
“…I also found the children’s hospital and school visits truly inspiring. They make you all feel so special and welcome, which is such a great feeling. We learnt so much, it taught me how to stop taking everything I have for granted, because there are people out there that would give everything just to have what I have.”
“…At Mityana Secondary School we met our buddies and we learnt a bit of their language, Lugandan, which I found quite difficult but I got there in the end. With the whole trip it has taught me so much and has changed me positively, as a person. It has also allowed me to come back with amazing stories and photos so I can share my experience with my family and friends.”
“…From meeting new people to having new experiences, this trip has opened my eyes and taught me that what you see on the outside is only half the story. The day that made the biggest impact on me was when we gave widows and families in need packages that contained rice, sugar, salt, soap and matches. I gave mine to a lovely lady called Theresa, who had ten children, which she all lost to diseases such as AIDS. When I first saw her, I thought that there was no way she could live a happy life. However, she taught me that how someone lives doesn’t affect how they act, as she was one of the most joyful people I have ever met.”
“…We want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us and gave us the opportunity of a life time. Thank you so much.”
