Unlike their 2010 predecessors, however, this group of volunteers will be split into two distinct teams. The first team of 12 will travel to Uganda’s capital, Kampala – the site of Retrak’s first-ever project. There they will help to build a playground for the boys living in our half-way-home cottages at Tudabujja, just outside the city, as well as skill-sharing with the Ugandan Police Force and, perhaps most excitingly, meeting the ‘Tigers’ – the Kampalan Retrak street boys’ football team! The second team will follow the footsteps of the 2010 volunteers by travelling to our Addis Ababa project in Ethiopia, where they’ll help to turn our old drop-in centre into emergency accommodation, meet the Retrak pioneers helping to create Ethiopia’s first programme of foster care, and run alongside our staff and children in the Great Ethiopian Run.
