“Joining RELON  Uganda and ARN in mid-2023 has been transformative. As a communication specialist and IT expert, volunteering has not only helped me integrate into the community but also allowed me to utilize my skills meaningfully. Meeting people from diverse backgrounds has enriched my experience, and contributing to both organizations has been fulfilling. I’m grateful for the opportunities and connections gained through this journey.
