Description

Uganda Environment Conservation Volunteer Project

Ssamba Foundation believes in (re)connecting people with our planet and with each other and this is true when you volunteer on our Uganda environment conservation project. This Conservation Volunteering Project Uganda brings people together from around the globe to plant thousands of trees, learn, connect, give back, grow and get active.

Not only will you gain the invaluable experience of travel, but more often than not you will be immersed in a local culture, meet local people and share their lives and do something meaningful. At the end of your volunteering experience, your greatest reward will be to know that you have made a difference in the lives of others (and they in yours), contributed to their community and helped sustain their development.

Getting involved with the conservation volunteering project Uganda is one of the most rewarding, exciting experiences that a volunteer can have. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to try different roles at the project site, dependent on your interests and skills. The Uganda environment conservation volunteer work does not require specialized skills, and volunteers for both short and long-term placements, are accepted all the year round.

Ssamba Foundation is looking for volunteers who wish to get involved in environmental conservation efforts in Uganda. These volunteers have the chance to interact directly with the community by preparing and coordinating workshops and activities with local staff, plant trees, reach out to schools and work on tree nurseries, supply solar cookers, water filters, high-efficiency cook stoves, solar lights, and other green technologies that will help to optimize water and other agricultural resource usage.

VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES INCLUDE BUT NOT LIMITED TO:

  • Planting trees
  • Working on a tree nursery
  • Joining environment education outreaches
  • Total Culture experience

The project was created to:

  • Facilitate tree nursery projects at village schools or on other nearby lands;
  • Plant trees;
  • Inspire environmental education in schools;
  • Improve nutrition;
  • Boost economic development; and
  • Help reduce the impacts of climate change.
