Welcome to Volunteer Uganda!

 

Volunteer Uganda

Volunteer Uganda is an award winning group of organisations dedicated to supporting communities in rural southwest Uganda in their efforts to rise out of poverty.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help bring about permanent, sustainable development through educational infrastructure development, job creation, health promotion and volunteering.

 

Volunteer

Choose from a range of volunteer projects including teaching in schools, research and sports coaching.

 

 

Charity

Support our partner schools, sponsor a student for a year, or make a donation towards a community project.

 

 

 

THE CHALLENGE

Volunteer Uganda focuses on supporting the community in the Bwindi district of rural southwest Uganda. Here, over 90% of the population live on less than a dollar a day, fertility rates exceed 8 children per woman and there is a shortfall of qualified teachers, resulting in class sizes of up to 70 children.

OUR SOLUTION

By bringing skilled international volunteers and donations from around the world into the Bwindi community, Volunteer Uganda is able to support the community in their efforts to rise out of poverty, through education and infrastructure development, health promotion and job creation.

BE A PART OF IT

Without the contribution of its amazing volunteers and funding from our incredibly generous supporters and donors, Volunteer Uganda would be nothing but a dream. If you're reading this, ask yourself, "what can I give? How can I be a part of this?" It will be the best decision you make.

Health Information

Some volunteers are naturally concerned about the current Ebola outbreak, so we have published a page outlining the facts about Ebola. There have yet to be any recent cases of Ebola in Uganda, and all our programmes are running as normal. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at ukteam@volunteeruganda.org
