You can make a real difference working with children and young people in a rural community in south-west Uganda ...
.. and, unlike many other volunteer projects, volunteering with us is 100% free ~ you just pay for your accommodation and travel!
www.volunteerinuganda.org is a website of the UK registered charity Uganda Lodge Community Projects (registered charity no. 1150023).
Come and spend time in south-west
rural Uganda undertaking
volunteer work with Uganda Lodge Community Projects ~ a
UK registered charity. You can work in our school, running
workshops or getting involved in our wider community projects.
All volunteer work is free ~ you simply pay for your
accommodation and food making our project probably the best
value volunteer experience in Uganda if not Africa itself.
Whilst the education of the children at our school has been our priority, our volunteer project has grown enabling us to offer volunteer placements in nearby government schools and the district hospital as well as developing a resource centre where we have begun computer training, tailoring lessons and the opening of a small library. In the future we will offer further vocational courses such as carpentry, electrician and plastering to our students.
Other projects include giving out 250 free mosquito nets, a clean fresh gravity-fed water supply for much of Ruhanga village as well as our own school and the development of a community health clinic which will be opening this year.
Ruhanga is a friendly community which welcomes volunteers with warmth, and, because our volunteer project is free with costs being limited to accommodation and food only (we don't even charge any admin fees or run offices in the UK or elsewhere), its rapidly becoming one of the most popular destinations of choice for volunteers from the UK and further afield for volunteer work in Uganda with our project being open to anyone world-wide who is fluent in English.
As well as undertaking volunteer work, those who stay with us for either short, medium or long term placements, can join in one of our many locally planned tours and safaris from Lake Bunyonyi to mountain gorilla trekking to the Queen Elizabeth National Park and see the real Africa! You can even camp next to the mighty River Congo and spend the night with hippos and baboons ~ a once in a lifetime experience!
We accept volunteers from all ages and backgrounds, so why not sign up today and make a life changing difference both for yourself and our community.
