When I heard about the mission of Umbrella of Hope Uganda, I was excited to join their team. Coming from a social work background with a concentration in international humanitarian work, I believed this was an excellent opportunity to contribute to the community of Jinja, Uganda. Volunteers are in integral part to achieving our goals, and I am pleased to be working with this motivated group of individuals.
