Renske Bakker: A Dutch national and laboratory technician by training. I fell in love with Uganda when i visited the country for the first time, in 2005, to do volunteer work in a local orphanage. I decided to come back in 2007 and have been living and working in Uganda for the past 7 years and have an adopted 7 year old boy who brings so much joy to my life.
I have spent my years here doing voluntary work at a faith based orphanage in Mukono and at an NGO based in Entebbe Uganda, that provides shelter and medical care for Kampala's street children.I am currently doing more work with disabled children in Uganda and growing my foundation. My interests are with medical care and rehabilitation of the children. I especially love to work with children between 0-2 years. My hobbies include volunteer work, reading books, traveling, swimming, driving cars, long nature walks, making crafts and gift cards.
Angella : A family physician working at Makerere university College of Health Sciences. A city girl at heart that enjoys community practice and travels moderately to rural settings. I am a scientist at heart but do have a creative side with interest in interior design, music and world travel. I love meeting and interacting with people from different parts of the world because as we know, variety is the spice of life!
We have been friends for the last few years and decided to try our hand at hosting , we love learning about other cultures, hosting people from all over the world and learning new things from our guests. We hope you will also learn from us and most of all enjoy your stay in Uganda. Do tell us more about yourself when you make an inquiry and we will be sure to write back within the hour.
