My name is Elizabeth and I am a volunteer in the UK for the Ugandan registered non-governmental organisation, Mwenya Uganda (Mwenya means smile!).
Traveled to Madagascar, Kenya, Uganda, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Nepal.
Passion for international development in a sustainable culturally sensitive way and empowering people to help others in their own country. Hence my huge involvement with setting up the NGO, Mwenya Uganda.
If you're ever travelling from the UK to Uganda, please do get in touch as we ALWAYS need people to take out equipment from the UK to Uganda, such as boxes of toothpaste, filing equipment, dental equipment and laptops. We have all the equipment sitting in our shed at the end of the garden, and we're just waiting to find our next gem of a volunteer to help us take it out there and help us avoid paying horrible transnational courier companies lots of money that could be spent on drugs to treat somebody in rural Uganda.

Happy travels guys!
