We are a team of passionate youths leveraging education to create a positive impact in our community.
OUR PROJECT REPORT:
We are currently running a primary/elementary school for 70+ children of ages 3 - 14. Most of the parents can't afford tuition in town schools and transport to town for a whole year is expensive so we try to lower ours and offer scholarships where we can so education can be brought closer to these families.
We have hosted over 50 volunteers in the past and we invite you to join us and teach alongside the local staff to positively impact the lives of these youngstars. Plus, why not have another place in the world you can call home? :)
You require no previous teaching experience to become a part of our team. Just a heart to share the little skills you might have that these kids can use in their day to day lives.
We are also building an eco-friendly, arts and tech centre for youth & women skill training bootcamps plus various cultural and art performances.

We offer shared accomodation to our volunteers, so they can socialise more. Our camping site is also available for volunteers travelling with their own tents.
Mosquito nets are offered to each of our volunteers a long with a pair of bed-sheets and blanket, which you can always wash on sunny days.
We offer our volunteers meals three times a day for free as part of the exchange. Breakfast at 7:00am, lunch at noon, and dinner at 8:00pm.
You can spend you're weekends trekking the Rwenzori Mountains (highest in Uganda), swimming in the hotsprings, Game Driving in the Queen Elizabeth National Park to spot lions and other game, Boat cruising on Kazinga channel -a home to Crocodiles, hippos and plenty of fish while still spoting game like elephants, tracking Monkeys, Chimps and gorillas on top of visiting local markets and also attending local events.
The cheapest and commonest means of transport is the Motor Bike, which you can always use to get to town or visit a few places around town like the Market.
English is understood by most locals, and most children are slowly learning it at school. The commonly used local languages are Lukonzo, Luganda and Lutoro. We will teach you basics of these so you can say hello to locals in their language.
The rainy season runs from March - May and September - November, and the Dry season from December - February and June - August. Please do pack with that in mind.
