'My Trip to Uganda' by Caoimhe Sheehan

Everybody nowadays has heard about countries in the developing world. We all learn about developing countries in school and we are well aware of how tough life is for people in this part of the world. However, learning about it in school was not enough for me. I wanted to see it for myself; the reality of how harsh life can be. So when I was given the chance to conduct a week long school study visit in Uganda this February with Self Help Africa I jumped at the opportunity. After going through an application process and being interviewed, I was successfully chosen along with another girl in my year, Rachel O’Connell, to travel to Uganda during February midterm with our teacher, Ms Donna Lyons.  After a tough two months of fundraising and preparing, we took to the skies to visit the great landmass of Africa on the 15th of February 2014. It was a life changing week that I will never forget.

Self Help Africa is an international organisation that promotes and implements long term rural development projects in nine Sub-Saharan African countries.
