Volunteers have the opportunity to work with orphans and disadvantaged children. Your contribution is invaluable to the children on the program. The work is incredibly rewarding. You can make a difference for these children and help to brighten their future. As a volunteer in Uganda you can provide love, affection, education and support to children in need. You will help to improve their living facilities allowing them to be self sufficient and providing a safe and secure environment in which they flourish. You will also provide English education, inter-cultural exchange and understanding in Ugandan communities.
What to Expect?
Our partner works with four private primary schools in Mukono town that cater exclusively to the education, housing and feeding of needy children and orphans. Volunteers are involved in arts and crafts, structured play, music/singing, sports, health, and academics. The main focus is to provide children with a loving, creative, interactive environment in which to flourish. Volunteers choose which subjects and age groups to teach upon arrival. They work independently to plan lessons using government curriculum and textbooks. Please be aware that there will be few (if any) resources available at school.
Volunteers should bring any supplies, teaching materials, or instruments they wish to make use of. Volunteers may also choose to work in a local residential home for special needs children. Main activities include structured play, story time, feeding, basic colours and numbers. All volunteers working in Mukono Town Teaching (up to 5 at one time) will be housed together in shared accommodation in a large apartment in Mukono Town, a semi-urban area
