The H-Ug project is a voluntary, educational and independent program, which took place in Uganda from 22nd of July till 10th of August. In the framework of the activities of the project H-Ug team visited in total 5 schools and interacted with 1400 students from primary and secondary education. It also trained 100 students and academic staff of the University of Ndejje, and also met with representatives of several Institutions of the country. The program aimed to inform and encourage pupils and students of all ages to chase their dreams through education and training opportunities beyond the geographical boundaries of the country.

The Team


Marilena Maragkou

I work as a Project Manager of European Projects , I am a graduate of Management and Business Administration from the University of Piraeus and I hold a Master of Science in International Marketing from the Economics University of Athens. I have already participated in several volunteer programs not only in Greece but also abroad. Through studying and training opportunities I had the opportunity to live abroad, to contact with people from all over the world, to exchange views and ideas with them and explode any bias. My great love are the foreign languages ​​and trips. I speak five foreign languages ​​and I try to offer through travelling. So far I have traveled to 40 countries on 4 different continents.

“At first it was just an idea, the reason for a trip to an unknown country and continent. But then the idea was evolved into the H-Ug project. We thought that we can do something more than just a trip. Knowing the needs through testimonies of people who live or just traveled there, we believed that we can provide a lot to this country. Once you are able to do something, why don’t you give it a try? When you can contribute in any way, why don’t you try?

This beautiful trip was just the beginning for us and for what it will follow. What matters is what we do from now on, this experience was the inspiration and motivation so as to do more and to continue this action.”


Konstantinos-Loukianos Maragkos

After my studies at the University of Athens in the department of Classical Greek Philology, I decided the experience of living abroad. The Erasmus+ programme was my compass and helped me to start this journey and as a result I was led to the cosmopolitan city of Vienna, where i conducted an internship through a scholarship for nine months as a Research Assistant in the Institute of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies of the University of Vienna. My passion has always been traveling, youth exchange programs, foreign languages, meeting with people from all over the world, interaction with new civilizations and other cultures, sports and activism. Since September 2016 I study at the Erasmus Mundus European Master in Tourism Management, representing Greece. “The H-Ug project was initially a huge challenge for me. Once we decided to implement it, we started to work feverishly. I really wanted to make our project a reality. The project is the proof that everything can start just from a simple idea. A great idea. Nowadays, in a period of ethical crisis and when the ideals and values ​​tend to disappear, we should stand our ground.

The H-Ug project helped me to understand who I really am. It opened my eyes and led me to new thoughts and dreams. The most important lesson that I took during the lifetime of the program and during the whole experience in Uganda is that material goods do not bring the happiness. Unfortunately we do not appreciate what we have and we take for granted many things. 

H-Ug project is the starting point. We would like to empower the Youth in local communities through education.”
