Rural Homestays- Kapchorwa

Every semester we take our students to a village in rural Uganda and drop them off with host families to experience life in a rural Ugandan village for one week. This semester we went back to Kapchorwa in eastern Uganda. Every family is different, so each student has a unique experience, but here are some of the common threads throughout the week and our debrief retreat afterwards.
