Volunteer in a quiet, safe village about 10 miles outside of the city of Kampala. Most 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.
Our programs serve the most vulnerable community members in Wakiso District of Uganda. Our volunteers support community development projects including pig and poultry house construction and repairs, health/HIV education, child education and orphanage support.
This is a great opportunity to explore life in rural Africa, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.
