    Our activities aspire to creating sustainable change in communities through building sustainable infrastructures which are then maintainable by the community members.

    our aim is to create "a sustainable world with equal opportunities and resources for all mankind". And in order to achieve this, we collaborate with community members and local authorities to gather valid solutions to the common social problems and we come out with the best priorities.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Firstly, this is an awesome opportunity for you to experience the African culture. we get you involved with our community members and families, thereby adding to your intercultural knowledge.

    We have a newly included package for all volunteers, who would like to tour around Uganda whilst assisting in projects work. Here, you can commit half of your stay to the projects and half to touring around. Our team is ready to take you around all tourist places of your choice.

    Note that most Ugandan and international tourist companies charge a lot to take you around these places, yet the entry fees to tourist places are low. with us, you will save a couple of dollars which are charged on you as profits to these companies.

    If you are interested in the cheap tours around Uganda, just get in touch with us for more details! our package out-competes the huge charges of touring companies!!!
