Overseas Mentor Cultural Exchange

Wonder how your donations are being used?  Come see for yourself!

PCE Foundation extends an open invitation to mentors and donors to visit Uganda, and experience the culture, environment, and everyday life of the grassroots communities we work with.

Meet the girl you mentor and her family, visit the demonstration gardens, help build the Library and Community Center – or if it’s complete, witness the impact it has on the community.  We welcome your ideas and vision.  We offer comfortable accommodations and delicious organic and natural dishes for you to enjoy at mealtimes.

While here, allow us to also introduce you to our beautiful country, from Queen Elizabeth National Park to Sipi Falls.  You will go home with memories that will last a lifetime.

A number of mentors and volunteers from many countries have visited with us already.  Here are just a few of their comments:

  • “This has been the best experience in my entire life, everything is new and it will take me forever to digest everything I have learned from this community, from Uganda and from Africa.”  –Jens, Germany
  • “We lack this type of community back home. Africa, you are so lucky living as a community.” –Jana, Germany
  • “I will never forget this experience.” –Sarah, Austria
  • “To me this has been a life changing experience. I had never experienced any of the things I am experiencing here. I will forever remember this most wonderful experience in my life.” –Liv, Australia
  • “This is a wonderful community with very warm people. I love it that the people here share the little they have with others joyfully.” –Rita, Germany
  • “This project is so good, I am going to engage my class and my school – Middle School 1 (MS1) of International School Neustadt (ISN).” –Annabelle, Germany  (Note: Annabelle did engage her school in the RGCM Uganda project, and through her efforts, four new mentors joined the project.)
  • “This is the best experience in my life ever.” –Sharon, Australia
  • “I am very happy I managed bring men closer to their wives. I taught men to work with women.” –Lisa, Australia

If a trip to Uganda doesn’t figure into your immediate plans, you can still keep up with events via photographs and videos posted on Facebook, personal letters from the beneficiaries, and Skype.
