Africa Sustainable Tourism Care Foundation

About Us

Africa Sustainable Tourism Care Foundation (ASTCF) is officially registered in the registry of Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Board with the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Uganda as a grassroots, non-profit tourism NGO – (Reg. No. S.5914/11282) that strives for the biodiversity conservation and creating sustainable livelihoods and helping communities adapt to climate change in Uganda through a diverse and holistic sustainable tourism practices and other environmental sustainable businesses to alleviate poverty, fight gender inequality, empower local communities and encourage the conservation of cultural and natural heritage. 


One of our program component is the humanitarian volunteer program which we established with an aim of hosting international volunteers to live with and work alongside with local people on sustainable humanitarian projects with the goal to help the local communities improve their standard of living.


Africa Sustainable Tourism Care Foundation works to promote ethical volunteering to maximize the beneficial developmental impacts in the communities where volunteering takes place, minimize the negative impacts and to ensure volunteers have a worthwhile experience. We do believe that International volunteers leave their mark in their host countries, not only by dedicating their time and energy to a community or conservation project, but also through the positive contribution they make in supporting local businesses, tourism operators, craftsmen and women, and the many jobs that are created and sustained by purchases they make, and activities they take part in while they are here. We therefore believe that when managed correctly, voluntourism ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying the criteria for responsible tourism, bringing visitors to areas of the country outside the traditional tourist routes, and providing a sustainable means for NGO projects to develop and employ local.


We offer a variety of educational and authentic volunteer abroad experiences - wildlife safaris, rural community insights, cultural immersion programs and volunteer projects including education, medical & health, sports development, entrepreneurship, women empowerment, micro finance, NGO administration, environmental conservation, community development and internship opportunities among others. 


Africa Sustainable Tourism Care Foundation is urgently in need of volunteers to work on sustainable community development projects in Uganda to experience a true cultural exchange while giving back to local communities.
