This is a perfect opportunity for volunteers to work with grassroots projects in rural Uganda. This is a rural community where taxi bikes share the road with animals.

As in most parts of Uganda, the community members struggle to meet their basic needs and strive to put their children in school. Main jobs include brick making, selling fruits and vegetables, small scale animal rearing and other manual labor jobs.

As a volunteer in this volunteer program in Uganda, you will experience traditional Ugandan life and participate in daily activities such as visiting elderly villagers, collecting water from a well, teaching children in outside classrooms, assisting in the brick making programs, feeding animals as well as health outreach programs.

These volunteer projects in Uganda serve the most vulnerable community members of the society. The main focus is providing education to hundreds of children in the surrounding villages. The schools provide not only needed education but opportunities for sports activities, health talks, feeding center and meeting place for the community.

Other community development projects may include poultry house construction and repairs, health/HIV/AIDS workshops, youth education, water and sanitation (including well and waterway construction) or other projects that can help us transform this community

With our volunteer program in Uganda, 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, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
