I really loved to be in contact with children in the school and also like
Ugandan people. There is a huge difference between children in Europe and
children here in Uganda. They are curious, listening, clever and respectful.
And they are also able to share to each other.
I was supposed to teach art. But I wanted to do something for the school in
a long term. Because if I teach art, of course it will be nice, but one time,
children will leave the school. So we decided to build a garden to try to
make themselves self sufficient. I hope it will work.
I’m Ellie from South Korea. I’ve been volunteering with TFM for 3 weeks. Ya, it is not a long period, yet I’ve learnt a lot during my short stay in here.. By the way to give you a brief introduction on myself, I’m a final year undergraduate student in UK who always wonder about the world out of the textbook. Before making my decision to come here, a security issue was my main concern above all and I’m sure that most of you might be hesitating because of this issue. However, upon my arrival, I haven’t faced with any danger or threat so far. I think this is due to the effort made by TFM’s staffs and my homestay family. The staffs in Trust future Uganda are nice and so supportive in that they are there whenever you need help. I feel safe and comfortable as I can see that they are trying their best to guarantee my safety and happy stay in Uganda. Also, I really love my Ugandan family. I’m staying with the local family here. Especially I’m enjoying my evening tea time with them. We share our ideas on certain topic, discuss the Ugandan politics which is my interested field. They are lovely, kind and tolerant. To sum up, I’m learning how to love, how to share and how to use my knowledge for others. I’m so happy that I made such a great decision to come here and having this valuable time to work with these wonderful people and the children. If you are hesitating to come, just give it a shot. You will experience more than you thought. Cheers to future volunteers. Best wishes, Ellie.
I’ve been volunteering at TFM from 10th October 2013 to 17th June 2014.
At that time I was 20 years old and I just had finished school. I spent
9 months in Uganda and it was the first time I have been abroad for such
a long period of time. It was an exceptional and incredible experience
for me to spend some time abroad and support Trust Future Ministries. I got
to know so many kind and powerful people. Furthermore I have learned so
much about the Ugandan culture and had the chance to discover a lot of
the impressive and magnificent nature all over the country. All the members
of TFM which made me become a part of their “family” are doing a great job
and are highly motivated to improve the everyday life of children, the youth
and women in Nabweru and the surrounding areas.
I spend 3 months in a primary school in Nabweru, TFM, near to the
big city of Kampala!:) That was a nice experience, I learned how to
teach to young kids, how to animate them,… I shared great time with
them, with their teachers, … We even danced all together too. That
was really funny! I start to appreciate the music that they all were
listening… Even to a point where I shout and applause for “Bebe cool”!
That was for me, a great social and human experience who stop quickly
and the return was a little bit shocking I think, even more because it
was in winter but anyway this was a really good experience!
The first time I went to TFM I discovered a wonderful place full of love and life. Two months where not enough and the same year I flew back for two more months! I felt life was just about enjoying and learning from the local volunteers as well as learning from the kids. It was also fantastic to know about the positive impact that the organization has on the community. I remember it was easy to build a natural and powerful relationship with the kids and the local volunteers, we took care of each other, I felt welcomed and loved. I am sure there will always be a huge piece of my heart in Uganda with all the TFM family.
I have been a volunteer at Trust Future Ministries since the beginning of July 2014 until the end of July 2015 so all in all 13 months. I decided to volunteer because I felt like I want to do something sincerely for other people. I felt like the world I was living in was often too focused on individuals and achieving one’s own goals. I wanted to break out of that and teach myself how to work for someone without getting paid or getting something directly to myself. I wanted to open my perspectives and challenge myself to do something I had never done before. The decision to volunteer offered me a unique chance to learn to know a new and totally different culture from the one I had grown up in and above all an opportunity to learn how to live in it.
Trust Future Ministries was a piece of light in my life. I was prepared for a new experience, but how to be prepared for that intense and true happiness? It felt like magic when we could arrive to do the art activities and find the kids smiling (from ear to ear) every morning we would cross the school's door. The kids showed me how to share, love and feel more each and every day..
