We are a Non Governmental Organization established in 2012 to respond to the vast social problems of the most under-resourced and remote areas of Uganda.
Our activities aspire to creating sustainable change in communities through building sustainable infrastructures which are then maintainable by the community members.
Our major aim is to ensure that all children are empowered and supported to grow up into responsible citizens who shall take on when we are gone.
We do this through skills training, providing education and living assistance, monitoring and engaging them through practical life skills and exchanges to learn leadership roles.
We have a primary school that seeks to provide education and living to over 200 orphans and vulnerable children. Although we dont have all of them, but its the aim, when dormitories are constructed.
We engage children into cultural exchanges with oversees volunteers, that helps them to share and learn more about different cultures, languages, and in the end inspires them to work hard and pursue life goals.
Therefore we have a language exchange program where volunteers teach children their language as well as the children. In addition, if a volunteer is staying less than 6 months, we request them to look for a volunteer from their home country to take on the language practice. This is because learning a language takes time and a lot of practice.
come and serve with us, you wont regret your time!

This host offers a language exchange
We are interested in learning any native volunteer language.
The volunteers house is located in a local village and its a 3 bedroom house with electricity, internet, running water and flush toilets. The house is located in a safe, quiet and secure environment, suitable for relaxing. However, the house is not on project site; we travel to the school on Monday and come back on Friday (so volunteers are free to spend time at tourist city near River Nile)
NOTE: Due to COVID19, the Uganda government requires all entrants to have a vaccination certificate and results that shows they tested negative to COVID-19 in the past 72 hours. With this, there's no mandatory quarantine!
How to visit Uganda:
Our nearest airport is Entebbe Airport and we normally pick our volunteers here at anytime of arrival.
Type of Visa: we recommend that you apply for a TOURIST VISA, unless you’re planning to spend more than 3 months. Sometimes, if you want to apply as a volunteer, it could be complicated. A tourist visa is a quickest way.
Others: Before you buy air ticket, make sure you have completed relevant medical checkups such as yellow fever shot, annual flu shot and any other according to your health. Some vaccinations could affect your travel dates.
A yellow fever shot and certificate is mandatory for Ugandan visitors.
Search Ugandan visa application portal online ( make sure the URL end with .go.ug)
Inform us once you have booked your flights so we can arrange for the pickup.
In addition; We provide our volunteers with free-time to explore site around us for free. This includes a tour to Kampala, and this gives you an opportunity to see the Uganda capital city and tourist places around, we enjoy the Kampala-nights together everyday, village tours and exchanges with locals (village gossips...lol). Attending live music bands every weekend where our volunteers are always given a chance to sing or mime your favorite song live, attending traditional functions such as weddings and introductions.........

In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
