Babalu: My experience in Kigungu, Uganda has been one of my best experiences in life. I felt at home with the hospitality of its people, their kindness and their smiles that never fade from their faces.
Staying with the children, spending time with them, helping them learn and understand the world better, always with love, is a very gratifying task that I will repeat very soon. I must thank Francis and Rogers for the work they are doing and how they help women are resources, orphans and in general the entire Kigungu community.
Monika: Since July, 2020 I volunteer online for KigunguKids EduCare. Although I never personally met the founder- Francis, however I immediately felt his love, power and big passion of changing life of the poorest in his village. He “infected” me with this power and dedicate my free time to help this community.
I met Francis on a Facebook Group called “Volunteering Opportunities around the world”, while I was searching for an on-site volunteering in Africa, for myself, my husband and our 3,5 years old son. Francis approched me with a proposal to spend some time in Kigungu and help him raising donations, and the community by engaging in several social activities. Due to pandemic, we needed to call off all our plans. While pandemic stole our freedom of travelling, it gave us at the same time opportunities to engage in an uncommon way.
As a professional marketing and communication expert who worked for several sustainability projects, I’ve been supporting Francis and KigunguKids in enhancing the organizations’ marketing, communication and fundrasing activities. KigunguKids new website http://www.kigungukids.com is her project, and she is responsible for the regular content management.
