The program

This program’s mission is to care for the orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children of Eastern Uganda. This is one of the largest children’s home that Love Volunteers places volunteers at, and is in fact a children’s home, primary school, secondary school, special needs unit, vocational school and clinic all in one. The facility was established and is run by a wonderful Dutch couple to meet the desperate needs of the local community. The children’s home caters to 200 children aged from 4 weeks to 16 years. The schools cater to the orphans and also the local community. The children’s home is run under religious beliefs and although the facility does not require volunteers to hold the same religious values, they do require volunteers to be courteous of their beliefs. Volunteers play a major role in this facility, helping to care for the children across all aspects and assisting with the running of the organization.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential care to the vulnerable children of Eastern Uganda
  • Improve the future prospects of orphaned children in Eastern Uganda
  • Give impoverished children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

How you can help

Volunteers play an essential role in helping disadvantaged children through this program.  Participants will spend their time taking care of children and assisting the local team as needed. Volunteers on this program will assist with a variety of tasks dedicated to the wellbeing of children and can rest assured that their help is making a huge impact on these wonderful children. The work usually undertaken by volunteers in Uganda orphanages entails organizing play, assisting with arts and crafts, and helping with feeding, hygiene and HIV/AIDS education. Volunteers in Uganda may be involved in some administrative tasks such as preparing budgets, writing proposals, and setting up and maintaining the children’s personal files. At the children’s home, volunteers will be working on schedules alongside local staff. As this program involves working closely with orphaned and at risk children, a three week minimum commitment is required to participate.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways on this program and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Help to feed and care for the children
  • Help the children with homework
  • Attend to and interact with the children
  • Create activities and entertain the children with games
  • Assist with administration and running the facility

Tagesablauf

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

8:00am Breakfast at the host family accommodation

8:30am Walk to project site

9:00am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

9:15am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

3:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

3:15pm Debrief with project supervisor

3:30pm Walk back to host family accommodation

Evenings Free time to relax and have dinner with your host family or explore the sights and sounds of Uganda!

Freizeitaktivitäten

All volunteer placements in Uganda are based in Mukono and Lugazi (about an hour out of Kampala), or in Ngora which is a 5 hours’ drive from Kampala.

Kampala is the capital city of Uganda and is also popularly known as ‘the city on many hills’ because it is spread over 10 hills. With a population of approximately one million, it’s on the small side for a capital city and retains a small-town charm. People passing each other in the street often know each other and still stop for a chat!

The city centre is vibrant with shops, roadside traders, markets, and the mind-boggling matatu (minibus taxi) stands providing local colour and atmosphere. The Nakasero fresh food market just off the city’s main drag is one of the most colourful places in East Africa with piles of bananas, pineapples, tomatoes, mangoes and every fruit and vegetable you can think of - and some you can’t - ugly jackfruit or matoke (cooking banana). Kampala is the gateway city for visitors to Uganda and is one of East Africa’s most laid-back and friendly cities and you will undoubtedly pass through it en route to a safari in one of Uganda’s national parks.

Places to see include but not limited to The Kasubi tombs - where the remains of the Kings of Buganda were buried Uganda, Uganda Museum, Nommo art gallery, National Theatre, Cathedrals - Rubaga and Namirembe, Parliament of Uganda (and Independence monument). There’s also a lot to do during your free time - Jet-Boating on the Nile up and down some of the smaller rapids, Excursion to Mburo National Park, Gorilla safaris, Bungee jumping and much more! Nice!

Abholung vom Flughafen Entebbe International Airport

Here you will receive an orientation to help you settle in, find out about your volunteering placement, the local surroundings and meet your fellow volunteers. A representative from the local team will fill you in on local and regional customs, traveling, rules and recommendations, and of course, what to expect from your volunteering experience. This is a great opportunity to get to know your hosts, meet your fellow volunteers, and ask any last questions you may have. Nice!

Unterkunft

Volunteers joining our team in Uganda are accommodated with one of our carefully selected local host families - which are perfectly located in safe and convenient suburbs close to their project locations. In most cases host families provide the volunteer with a private room, but during busy periods you many need to share with other volunteers. There are no hot showers available, however there are showering systems in all of the host families.  Linen and mosquito nets are provided.

There is generally no internet available in the host families, however you can purchase a SIM card and purchase a data plan on your phone (you will need to ensure you have had your phone unlocked before you leave home).
There is also an internet cafe approx 20 km from your accommodation.

Staying with a local Ugandan family is a great way to be truly immersed in the local culture. All families have been fully vetted by our local team and have plenty of experience in hosting international volunteers. The families are experienced in hosting international volunteers and will take very good care of you.

Gastfamilie
Verpflegung
