Caroline, our volunteer in Uganda, shares her story with us
Growing up in Uganda, the volunteering world has always been a part of me. It is something I knew I would fully take part in someday. My passion to support the less fortunate and partake in positively changing the world was always at the top of my priorities.
After a long time working in local non-governmental organizations here in Uganda, it only made my passion even greater. I found both joy and purpose in the projects that we implemented. I witnessed first-hand how these projects changed people’s lives. I got to tell the stories of the beneficiaries through their lens.
In early 2021, I was given an opportunity of a lifetime to impact change through my story telling at VIATORES CHRISTI(VC). VC is a faith based international organization founded in Dublin Ireland with partners in Africa, Latin America and South East Asia. This was a chance to tell stories of beneficiaries all over the world and get to understand the situation of people from diverse backgrounds in different parts of the world first hand.[one-half-first]
So far, my experience has been mostly learning through the different trainings that VC offers, telling stories of change to a wider audience through online exhibitions and getting a chance to work with exposed and well-informed staff.
VC is a great environment, with welcoming, easy to talk to staff, which has created a very healthy working environment for me. I am looking forward to this journey of telling impactful stories and positively changing people’s lives, one step at a time![/one-half-first] [one-half]
