Comments from UPA The project is hosting maximum 3 volunteers at a time. It is ideal to those
volunteers who would like to be in touch with small/big children and would
like to get an overview on the growing stages and steps of a Ugandan child.
All volunteers choosing school project should always remember to consider
the school holidays when the schools are closed in Mid-April – Mid-May,
Mid-August – Mid-September and December to Early February.

Communication Communication at school is mainly in English, though especially with kids, it
may be challenging since not all of them can easily express themselves in
English. Translation to the Volunteer from the local language is possible from
fellow workmates.
