“This experience for me inspired me to develop a world vision of service… The benefits are twofold: they are helped by my work and I am refreshed by their love and joyful attitude about life. I would highly recommend volunteering for S.O.U.L., it will change the way you see life and how you live it out.” -Justin Cardenas, Volunteer
“The trip gave me the unique opportunity to experience Africa and, more importantly, allowed me to give something back to their community. The locals were very friendly, hospitable and did their best to make us feel at home. Looking back, the trip helped me learn about a foreign culture, develop as an individual and instilled important values in me.” -Nabil Ahmed, Volunteer
“The Uganda trip was indeed an eye opener… The trip was great and we were all forced to step out of our comfort zone and embrace something completely new to us and I believe it helped me grow.” -Akanksha Menon, Volunteer
"My experience volunteering in Uganda with S.O.U.L. was refreshing and life-changing. It was inspiring to see such loving, pure, and happy people in the village of Bujagali Falls. And it was obvious to see the significant impact that S.O.U.L. has made on the village. I miss the family I stayed with and everybody in the village dearly! Wasuze!" -Nick Brown, Volunteer
