Volunteering with The Great Primate Handshake is one of my fondest memories. Although I did not have a background in film, but instead anthropology/ wildlife conservation, I absolutely loved learning a wonderful tool to help wildlife conservation.
We travelled all across Uganda experiencing a vast variety of living situations, wildlife, social issues, and some of the most amazing people in the world (within the group and locals).
That staff were always there to listen, advise, and support. You live in very close confines with people for a month and at the end of the month it will be the hardest thing to say goodbye to all of these wonderful people.
This is an experience I will never forget and look back on fondly for years to come. If only I could find enough time to volunteer again!
