We are a community-based organization located in the rural Sironko District in Eastern Uganda. We support vulnerable children and the wider community around them by transforming the children's lives through education, rehabilitation and talent development. With the support of family members and volunteers, We are currently supporting 30 children under the age of 13 years, hoping to be able to help more children as the organization develops. Moreover, the organization supports elderly people and is engaged in different ecological projects and education about sustainability/environment.

Volunteering in this project will definitely change your life in a way that you experience living in an African community, and feel the positive change and movement that is possibly when everybody starts doing a little bit.
Besides this life changing experience, Uganda and its people really ARE one of the friendliest and most welcoming people in the world. It is thus easy to get in touch with people and their life stories. Furthermore, you will get experiences in working for a growing nonprofit organization, mostly in a practical way but also in a theoretical managerial perspective.
Lastly, volunteers MUST explore the beauty of Uganda, and Sironko District is a great starting point for this in the Eastern Region of Uganda. Sironko is mountainous, has a river and sisi water falls. Moreover, it is close to the famous Sipi Falls and to Mt. Elgon. Moreover, volunteers can experience safari tours with close-by safari operators or the big city life in Kampala or Jinja with its various sites. We are also happy to do tours together with you, and of course, we provide transport from the airport and back to make your arrival most convenient for you.
Volunteering with us could be your next opportunity for experiencing life in Uganda, Africa, and for making a difference in the lives of these children, young and elderly people - So, join us! :)
We welcome all people with various skills or ideas that support the children, elderly, and the community as a whole. These skills might include teaching skills such as in the area of art, ecology, sustainability, sports, dance, yoga and many more, skills in engineering, construction, gardening as well as general maintenance. Moreover, fun being around children and/or elderly people is very important! :)
Please choose your own period of time to stay - the longer you stay, the happier we are but sometimes a short stay is a worthwhile experience, too! So, let's talk about it...
