Uganda has thousands upon thousands of orphaned children. Most of them have been orphaned as a result of the current HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda and you can apply to make a difference.
The IVHQ Uganda orphanage project places volunteers in orphanages to assist local staff in the day to day running of the orphanages. The volunteers play a key role in ensuring these orphanages can operate effectively. Volunteer activities include child care, teaching, playing with children, organizing outings and games, music, washing of children and feeding the children.
Goshen Children's Home - Located in the Bupagengo village in Kamuli District, this home looks after over 300 orphans with a very limited number of staff. With such a high number of children and small staff numbers, Volunteers play a huge role in ensuring this home can continue to run on a day to day basis. Key tasks include, teaching, food preparation, cleaning, playing with the children and organizing activities and outings for the children. NB - This is just one of many orphanage placements in Uganda and is used here as an example. It is not necessarily the one you will be working at.
