Care for a child volunteers come from a range of different backgrounds and from all over the world.

Care for a child's aim is to offer the volunteers the necessary assistance required to achieve their goals in volunteering abroad.

Care for a Child in Uganda has been chosen to work alongside some of the neediest communities in the country, including Kampala, wakiso and rural areas. Facing the Challenges

As a charity, we work hard to make our adventures the best possible experience for the volunteers and the local communities. In this role, we act as a catalyst for change, bringing local villages together, sometimes for the first time as one team and giving them the resources and motivation to achieve sustainable development.

The challenges: From the very first stages the Care for a child program was founded on 4 challenges: 1. The challenge to be selected 2. The challenge to raise the funds to help 3. The challenge of the adventures 4. The challenge to make a difference on your return

It is these challenges that make Care for a child Volunteers special. Our values of discovery, courage, drive and integrity have come from the heart and we believe in them and live them in all we do.
