    Description

    Hello I am called James and the Director and founder of this project in Uganda set on community based principles that simply connects volunteers to real local life experiences and in the process transforming and adding value to the local people and vulnerable groups of people like women, single mothers, youths and others. We work with other locally approved homes, NGOs, CBOs, within our locality and the country at large .These communities need exactly what u can offer, like professional skills , entrepreneurship skills and any other help one can offer to encourage and instil hope and add value to these communities, giving our volunteers a chance to first hand experience and enjoy the local delicacies, fresh organic fruits like bananas, passion fruits and many more, make sure u try a Rolex and take ride on local motorcycles commonly know as (Boda Boda) for easier transport around the major town centres throughout Uganda. Look for the ones called safe boda boda, they wear orange reflector jackets and Helmets.

    We do offer free accommodations and We can also arrange airport pick ups and drop offs on request and we can advise you on the best game tour safaris locations to check out.

    Our volunteers have a wide range of tourists activities to engage in while staying with us like lake Victoria landing site in Kasenyi,Uganda wild Life center in Entebbe,The Source of River Nile in Jinja, the longest river in the world, bird watching, given that Uganda is home to 11% of the world's bird species, River Nile water rafting, Bungee jumping, lake Victoria boat cruises, swimming, fishing and vibrant night life ,likeb clubs, bars and restaurants.
