Uganda Expedition 2012

Published November 24th, 2012

In July 2012, I was part of an 11-strong team of students that took part in an expedition to Uganda with our college in Hampshire. We fund-raised £3000 beforehand via cake sales and quiz evenings, all to be given to a small village, in the South-West region of Kabale, called Kanjobe. We donated over 50 animals, books and sports equipment to the locals, also holding art lessons in the local primary schools to decorate 500 t-shirts that we packed in our rucksacks and put money towards various building projects occurring in the schools.

Meet the Locals

On our waterfall walk in Fort Portal we were looked at strangely at how unfit and tired we were after the hike up a really steep trail from the waterfall to our bus.

Sunset in the South West

My first day in Uganda, in the minibus on the way to Kanjobe. A gorgeous sunset above a mountain lined with trees, a perfect way to first see one of the many beautiful things in Uganda.
