Want to help improve the lives of Ugandan children? This program is for you!

This program’s mission is to care for the orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children of Eastern Uganda. This is one of the largest children’s home that Love Volunteers places volunteers at, and is in fact a children’s home, primary school, secondary school, special needs unit, vocational school and clinic all in one. The facility was established and is run by a wonderful Dutch couple to meet the desperate needs of the local community. The children’s home caters to 200 children aged from 4 weeks to 16 years. The schools cater to the orphans and also the local community. The children’s home is run under religious beliefs and although the facility does not require volunteers to hold the same religious values, they do require volunteers to be courteous of their beliefs. Volunteers play a major role in this facility, helping to care for the children across all aspects and assisting with the running of the organization.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential care to the vulnerable children of Eastern Uganda
  • Improve the future prospects of orphaned children in Eastern Uganda
  • Give impoverished children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of Uganda. This highly interactive and varied project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist. However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
