Every semester, USP students journey to 'the village' for a week of rural homestays. Students have a great opportunity to exchange schedules and classes for a taste of rural life where time is measured in relationships and cups of tea. This semester we went to Kapchorwa in Eastern Uganda, a land of stunning beauty, mountain cliffs, valleys and breathtaking waterfalls.

When students were picked up at the end of their stay, the van was packed with muddy gumboots, goodbye tears, and laughter as stories were swapped about their week apart. They spent the weekend debriefing their week, relaxing and hiking at Sipi Falls before returning to UCU with a piece of Kapchorwa forever in their hearts.
