Over the past 7 years, ECO-AGRIC UGANDA has had the pleasure to work with more than 90 volunteers from Uganda and abroad, including Brasil, Catalonia, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Kosovo, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. We have been relying on their determination and their skills for a variety of tasks, from helping us at the office, to assist our field officers in our programs, to teaching, to setting up agricultural technology, water systems and eco-buildings. Each and every one of them has contributed within their own vision and capabilities, and we strongly believe that any volunteer who comes to us has something useful to share, depending on their individual background, experience, and education. We cannot thank them enough for their role in our project. Every volunteer at ECO-AGRIC UGANDA has their own story; you can discover some of them below. What will your story be?
