Volunteer in an orphanage in rural Uganda

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP



Time Commitment

Full time (30+ hrs/wk)


Short-Term (few weeks/months)




The volunteers in this project will support an Orphanage for children in Kayingo Bulonde Village in Central Uganda. The orphanage provides home and support network for orphaned and abandoned children in rural areas of Uganda. These children came to the orphanage for different reasons and every child has a different story. Some were orphaned by HIV/AIDS and some by tragic road accidents, some came to us because their families no longer wanted them whilst others have families who still love them but could no longer care for them.

The orphanage is in a bad condition and needs support both with renovation and taking care of the children. We are looking for motivated volunteers to assist the home administration and take care of the kids. The main task is to help improve the living conditions for the children which would require some painting and renovation work. The volunteers will also provide educational support to the orphanage, organizing different activities for the kids, playing with them, helping them learn new skills and develop creativity, and providing counseling and guidance.
