Uganda trip in October

A group sets out to explore the special, to meet African people and their culture, bringing them closer to our lands 7800 km away. Every year during the autumn holidays of North Rhine-Westphalia a group of 15 to 20 committed people make their way to Uganda, to "work" for two weeks in the project, but also to enjoy the African life and the beautiful landscapes of Uganda as well as the wildlife to discover.
Already half a year before the autumn holidays, the group of interested Ugandans meets and, under the direction of Andre Bösing, thinks about which plans are in the pipeline and which impulses can be implemented. Small working groups form, for example, preparing the Martinsumzug at our school and the previous tinkering of the lanterns. In addition to actions that are scheduled regularly, each year different ideas are introduced by the participants of the trip. Since the holiday and recreation of the experience should not be neglected, the second week should be used to discover the beauty of the country Uganda; either when visiting a national park or about the island world in Bunyonyi lake.
