The Hope Alliance is returning our vision program to Bwindi, Uganda and we need your help.
Join us on this incredible, once in a lifetime experience that will take you deep into the jungle of Uganda. The team will host 5 days of vision clinics for the Batwa pygme and surranding population including children and adults. You will trek through the lush greenery to get to each destination and return to your guest house each night feeling exhausted and overwhelmingly grateful. Learn more about the Batwa pygmies in the Volunteer Guide from the Kellermann Foundation listed below.
In addition to the great work you will do, you will also have the experience of two different safaris. The first is to Akagera National Park where you will be staying at the Ruzizi Tented Lodge. "Game drives in the early morning and evening allow you to see elephants, Uganda kob, warthogs, zebras, and other local wildlife in addition to an astounding variety of birds.
On your way back to Kigali you will pay a visit to Lake Bunyonyi for your second safari. "Lake Bunyonyi is one of Uganda's most picturesque locations. The name of the lake translates as the 'place of little birds' and it is indeed blessed with some 200 bird species."
