Zelai had a passion of volunteering with a Children’s charity and after having been recommended by a previous volunteer Charlota who is also her childhood friend. She went ahead and mobilized more four friends to join her on the trip to Uganda.
This group focused on Painting which was successfully done. They bought lots of paint while here at a certain big hardware in Kalagi trading centre which was enough to paint kindergarten chairs and table as well as the Orphanage school and Children homes. The impact of school painting is so outstanding and it is the talk in the community because the school looks so fascinating! This team was so committed that on the last day of painting, they were caught up by time but decided to paint until dark used their phone lights to ensure that work was complete.
Besdides painting, Zelai and team had a lot of fun! Every morning they would have games with the children and the children loves being around these volunteers. The team taught children new games that they still play break time. Children also sang and danced for the volunteers which were adventurous for them to see how Ugandan Children do it.
Zelai and team opted to visit the shores of Lake Victoria, the second largest lake in the world which they actually visited and enjoyed stepping into the fresh waters. The team also had a safari to Murchison falls they had ultimate memories through www.primesafaris.com as associate to www.covccintl.org
This volunteer’s team became part of www.covccintl.org family and they were given Christian Luganda names like KWAGALA (Love), MIREMBE (Peace), BIRUNGI (Beautiful) SSANYU (Joy) and MUKISA (Blessing) according to their first appearance at Entebbe International Airport.
