"Volunteering at Mak-Jolly school for 6 weeks has been an amazing experience.
Thank you so much for the love and for taking good care for us. Being a part of Mak-Jolly has been a dream come true.
We are so grateful for the staff and we want to thank you for everything you did to us; to the Kitchen Lady who made special food for us, even when she was sick. To the driver who drove us anywhere we wanted to go, even on weekends when he was free. And for the teacher who invited us at her home and made food for us with her family. And last but not least thank you to Maureen who always made sure that we were alright and escorted us to Kampala for 4 hours and drove back again to Kiryandongo the same day just to make sure we arrived safely - thank you so much!
Thank you Maureen Hansen and Per Hansen for the good work you have done to all those kids in Kiryandongo who need help. You are both such a blessing for them! We will pray that everything will be fine and your plans for the school will come true. It has been a pleasure to be a part of your lovely family. We will surely come back.
Best regards from your volunteers Ida and Mary".

But one thing stays the same no matter where you go in the world, i find. Kids are kids, and they want to be loved. And they are loved at Mak Jolly.
Special thanks to Maureen Momo Hansen for being a pioneer and starting the school, and letting me to be a part of it.
Special thanks to the staff and people around Mak Jolly who welcomed me with no hesitation.
