Book: Tales From Gulu by Camille Khairallah
|5 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Camille Khairallahabout this book: I was inspired by a friend to travel to Uganda and volunteer for two months through the Concordia Volunteer Abroad Program CVAP, based in Montreal, QC, that was available to me through my University in Canada. In this book I provide the summary of my adventures volunteering in a micro-finance project in Gulu, Uganda and how to prepare/live in such an environment while comparing it to North America.
During my two-month stay in Gulu, I was in charge of working on a micro-finance project: lending money to families in order for them to create a sustainable source of revenue to eventually pay back the loan and continue moving forward. These families were unfortunately hit by the HIV/AIDS virus but they were willing to provide their children with a safe and sustainable future.
Readers from everywhere will enjoy reading this book as it is a memorable piece of writing that includes the good as well as the bad experiences that I lived through during my stay. It is a must-read if you are planning to visit Africa one day and especially if you like to volunteer.
Thanks for taking the time to buy and read my book,
