Global Exchange Reality Tours wants to bring together aspiring individuals to travel to Uganda. Discovering Uganda means exploring a quintessential example of the complex and unique tasks facing post-colonial African states. The development of this East African nation is beset with complex issues that make it an exceptional case study within the East African community and the larger narrative of post-colonial Africa.
The civil war in the northern region has raised critical global issues surrounding human rights, child abduction, and the reconciliation of peace and justice on the international and domestic stage. Join us as we learn about the struggles, successes and identities of Uganda, through the eyes of the people and organizations that are working on the rehabilitation and psychological recovery of child soldiers.
Discover Uganda in all of its differences. Experience this a country that few visit and bring your stories home to share with others.
A valid visa is required to enter/exit Uganda.
Watch Ugandan Days by Erika Myszynski . The film was shot during a customized delegation with Global Exchange's Reality Tours.
