Volunteering means doing charitable of helpful work without pay for instance community services.
Volunteers in Uganda provide assistance to disadvantaged socio-economic groups within Ugandan communities, focusing primarily on orphaned children, HIV/Aids groups, and school children. They also provide love, affection, education and support to orphaned children. This helps to improve education in schools ensuring children learn and flourish. Volunteers can practice and teach preventative healthcare, hygiene and HIV/Aids care, education, inter-cultural exchange and understanding in Ugandan communities. Most projects have little or no resources, so foreign volunteers with different ideas and experiences are highly valued. Volunteers make a real difference in primary schools, secondary schools, and colleges, helping to transform the lives of thousands of young people in Uganda. The positive impact the volunteers have had in the community has been over whelming.
Sponsor a child
Sponsoring a child is a direct and personal way to make a difference to their life. Without the help of their sponsor, the children would not be able to attend the school. This aims – to make a difference today and to take one more step towards sustainable transformation of a community. And education is at the heart of what is needed to allow the people of rural Uganda to attain their potential.
The sponsorship money goes towards the child’s school fees and to ensure they get three meals per day. The child’s family still has to make a contribution towards the fees because we believe this is important.
