About us

Are you looking to do something more meaningful on your travels?

Beacon of Hope Uganda is a Ugandan based volunteer travel, humanitarian service and rural development organization. Beacon of Hope Uganda designs and conducts programs which contribute to the welfare and social productivity of disadvantaged individuals and communities with an emphasis on children and youth. BoHU addresses some of the most pervasive problems in rural Uganda, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, hunger, education, poverty, access to clean drinking water, and orphaned children. In addition, it focuses on empowering the youth of Uganda empowering them with different skills and leadership training.

Beacon of Hope Uganda (BoHU) recruits volunteers for locally-run community development, conservation, teaching, health, building and sports projects around Uganda. There are many ways to volunteer your time, as well as your skills, to help out. Depending on the season, we always have a list of much needed services of volunteers within our projects around Uganda.



Beacon of Hope Uganda volunteers engage into programs and projects which improve on the sanitation of rural people and this include clearing of drinking wells, building of dry racks and the digging of latrines as well as education of healthy living practices. Join the team and help in improving the sanitation conditions of poor communities.

With our volunteer in Uganda program we allow you to discover the wonders of Uganda, while doing meaningful and rewarding community work. This is a great opportunity to explore life in rural Uganda and rural schools, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.

Volunteers can also get involved in school activities. Teaching experience is not required. You can begin as a teaching assistant and then work in small groups with children in need of extra attention. The objective of this program is to contribute to the academic development of the school in order to provide the best opportunity for the orphans to receive quality education. Volunteers support the local teachers; encourage students to learn and play and instill pride in their schooling.


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.

You just have to let us know where you want to go and we will take you there and information is available for you. The type of work you are involved with will be dependent on your interests, abilities, level of experience as well as your comfort levels.

One of the advantages of the Beacon of Hope Uganda’s volunteer in Uganda program is that you are not limited to one job role and you will have the opportunity to 'sample' other roles during your placement. To become involved in another projects simply inform a member of staff who will happily make any necessary arrangements.

Volunteer work side by side the locals' on-going brick construction and water building projects in the community. Volunteers needed for manual labor jobs working alongside skilled and unskilled local workers.

Help to improve school children's conversational English and French, paving a road for a brighter future - instilling in them a working command of the English language.


We provide to people of all ages and backgrounds with opportunities to have an active part in helping develop a local community, and accept donations to improve standard of life for people living in Uganda. We make it possible to see what your money has specifically done for the local people and how it has helped them and their community.
