Uganda has over 1.5 million unprivileged children, youths in the country and out of these over 22.8% are unemployed youths that get involved in rampant crime engagement. After that discovery gave birth to Hearts For Hope Africa which is a charity Organization that was registered in  2014 and fully operating in the outskirts of Kampala with over 3 sub Community Based Organization in the various Districts of Uganda and provide services/programs like;

  • Women and Girl child Empowerment
  • Youth Empowerment
  • Child care
  • Building
  • Teaching
  • Community Charity
  • Medicine & Health Care
  • Cultural Immersion
  • New Languages Training
  • Orphans Empowerment
Through our program/projects we have been able to equip over 1000 youths and single mothers with basic hands on skills that have made set up their own businesses hence at-least reducing on the number of unemployed citizens in the country.

Hearts For Hope Africa provides a safe, structured and social platform with volunteer, travel and immersion opportunities available from 4-50 weeks. Hearts For Hope Africa is widely regarded as Uganda’s leading transparent, flexible and trustworthy international volunteering Charity Organization.

We work extremely hard to ensure that our opportunities are flexible for everyone who wants to make a difference something our volunteers really appreciate.

Our structured programmes create the perfect platform for you to see the world, meet like-minded people and engage in meaningful volunteer work. We have teams in the UK, the US, Germany, France and Italy and our host destinations who will support you 24/7 throughout your time with us.

There is also a great social element to our programmes. We put you in touch with all your fellow volunteers via Facebook / WhatsApp before you set off so that you can be confident of where your heading to. Our projects receive volunteers from around the world throughout the year, so even if you’re travelling solo, you’re going to meet heaps of people along the way. Plus you’ll have plenty of opportunities to travel the country with your new found travel buddies – it’s all part of the Hearts For Hope Africa experience!

So if you’re thinking of doing something a bit different on your next trip abroad, then why not drop us a line and find out what extraordinary things you could be doing.

 Hearts For Hope Africa faces a number of challenges such as; 

  • Inadequate man power at our Foundation.
  • Limited income rate at the Foundation.

Solutions to the challenges.

  • Recruiting more volunteers both local and international that help solve the challenge of man power.
  • Setting up some small scale businesses under that foundation that help bring more income to the foundation as we also receive donation from well-wishers.

Hearts For Hope Africa has an ambition of helping the unprivileged single mothers, children and youths by providing with basic needs of life such as food, shelter, education, medication, parental love and care.

Hearts For Hope Africa is surrounded by a loving community full of people who need and deserve financial, education and counseling help so as to bring hope, joy and love to them and make them feeling loved.

Volunteers while at our foundation will work with fellow volunteers at the foundation, from other parts of the world, Ugandan from various regions of the country and work with all people that need and deserve help and will live at the Director's home.
