About the homestay
The homestay is located in western Uganda in the city of Fort Portal. The YAWE Foundation is close to many gorgeous tourist attractions. Especially the Kibale National Park, located just around the corner. It is home to many chimpanzees and other monkeys. You can do chimpanzee trekking and there are also a lot of great hiking opportunities nearby.
Furthermore, YAWE offers great options to get to know the local community and the Ugandan way of life in their project. For example local dance classes or the production of local crafts.
