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 orphaned children.

You will also provide English education, inter-cultural exchange and understanding in Ugandan communities.
What to Expect?
For volunteers wishing to work in a very remote area with HIV affected orphans, our partner works with a project in western Uganda, about 5 hours away from its other host organizations. This is the area where HIV/AIDS has most devastated Uganda. The organisation is focused on bringing aid, education, and love to the orphans of the area, many of whom have lost their parents due to AIDS related illnesses. Volunteers help with basic academics, feeding, organizing play, arts and crafts, hygiene and HIV/AIDS education appropriate to the childrens' age level (3 to 12 years).
Volunteers may be asked to help with administrative work such as budgeting, updating paperwork, writing proposals, and maintaining personal files on the children. This is a challenging but amazing program for volunteers with experience organising children, such as camp counsellors, day care workers, and people who love children. Bring your games, songs, and enthusiasm to the village! Volunteers are given a private room in the home of the host organization’s director, 3km from the project. Volunteers are expected to walk to the project each day.
