By the end of this eye-opening week, you will know your way around the local area, have met some of your fellow participants, learnt to cook some local Ugandan food and have a much better understanding of the daily life of Ugandan people. This is a week-long immersion program designed to make you feel as at home as possible in your new country.

We will take you on fun sightseeing tours to Victoria lake and the local city monuments, and you will have the chance to make your own Ugandan sandals in a handicrafts workshop. There will be many opportunities to socialise, taste the local cuisine and meet the local people. You will come out of the program with a better understanding of the local culture as well as many new friends!

Whether preparing to join another program in Uganda, or just wanting to understand the culture better, this program is the perfect introduction to a vibrant and exciting African country.
