As you all know I had planned a trip to Africa to volunteer in Africa in early 2015. Due to the Ebola outbreak and a change in roles at work I postponed my trip to 2016. I wanted to give an update to everyone.
The group that I am going with is non-religious and non-governmental organization. They are funded solely by the donations of people like me and you to support and sustain their project which keeps this volunteer group completely independent.
We do not impose religious or other western values on local indigenous communities. Sadly in Uganda missionaries have tried to change some traditional beliefs but that lead to disaster and my volunteer organization is fighting to maintain cultural heritage and build pride through documenting and celebrating it.
