Volunteer

You may have been looking for an opportunity to get involved on a ‘hands on’ basis. It’s a very rewarding experience to be working as a part of a very small team where you can see every bit of difference you make. The smiles on the children’s faces make it all worthwhile. We welcome you; come give up some of your time to go out to Uganda and volunteer at the Children’s Home. Whether be it for a week, a month or several months. As much as you’ll be impacting the lives of these little children in a great way, you’ll discover that visiting Uganda will impact your life forever! This could be on many levels, Administration, teaching, nursing, Craft work, Music Dance and Drama, the list is endless… Various accommodations are available, depending on the level of comfort required.
