Community Development

Volunteering with us offers an opportunity to make a difference in a local community while discovering the unique Ugandan culture.

As a volunteer in this project you will have the opportunity to try different roles and projects, dependent on your interests and skills. These volunteer opportunities do not require specialized skills (although these would be an advantage), and we accept volunteers for both short and long-term placements, all the year round. Volunteers certainly gain an amazing life experience from their participation in our placement program. On first arrival, most volunteers sample all the projects before selecting the tasks that suit them best.
As you gain valuable learning experience, your work helps us in meeting our objective of providing solutions to the most urgent needs and problems in the community via our programs that have a positive impact. We offer a number of services to the community; therefore there is a wide range of activities in which you can participate, on-site and off-site, from your home town.
