By checking each of the below boxes you are confirming your understanding and commitment to the following statements.
I acknowledge that I will be in a different culture where some common U.S. behaviors or customs may not apply or even be offensive to the Ugandans, therefore I will take care to be aware of my behavior and how it affects those around me. I commit to being flexible, patient and pleasant. I will, at all times, exemplify strong morals and positive behavior in order to be a role model and influence to those around me. I will follow the guidelines to have all funds submitted to Musana before the time due. I acknowledge that I am a guest working at the invitation of my hosts and will behave and respond as a grateful visitor, including eating what I’m offered and participating with community activities as they are presented. I will remember I have come to learn as well as to assist. I’ll resist the temptation to inform our hosts about “how we do things.” I will be open to learning about other people’s methods & ideas, in all areas of work, leisure and religion. I will develop and maintain a servant attitude toward all nationals, staff, fellow volunteers, team members and other visitors to Musana. I commit to respect all Musana staff along with my supervisors and his or her decisions. I will refrain from gossip. I will refrain from complaining. I know that travel can present numerous unexpected and undesired circumstances, but the rewards of conquering such circumstances are innumerable. Instead of whining and complaining, I'll be creative and supportive. I commit to being inclusive in my relationships and interact with all members of staff, short-term teams and fellow interns. I will refrain from any activity that can be construed as romantic interest in a national, teammate or other volunteer. I will not pursue any romantic relationship of any kind with anyone during this trip. I will abstain from illegal drugs, tobacco and alcohol abuse, as well as offensive and immodest dress and profanity during this trip. I realize that I will be living on campus, in staff housing, potentially with other volunteers, staff and administrators, and sometimes, other guests. I will treat them, and my physical surroundings, with the respect that is deserved. I agree to comply with an 11pm curfew at all times. I understand that I am here to serve and that I will be at all places in a timely manner, even if that means I am waiting on others to arrive on time. I commit to receiving permission first before allowing any visitor to come to Musana’s campus. I will remember that I can be sent home, at my own expense, if I do not adhere to this covenant or if Musana’s Directors believe it is in my or Musana’s best interest. Please type your first and last name below if you agree to abide by the Musana Trip Covenant outlined above.
