    Hello Workawayers...
    We are an organization dealing with projects in poverty alleviation, schools and academics, health, community empowerment, agriculture, supporting the less fortunate children and and their families.
    We are looking for volunteers, organizations, foundations, donors and well wishers to work with us. Do give us an email to partner with us on local grassroots community projects in Budaka and Pallisa.
    We do enjoy meeting people from all around the world, sharing our experiences and good times with them, I will respond to most of your messages since I have internet access.
    We kindly request volunteers to feel free with us, ask any questions of their interest on getting around Budaka and Pallisa learning local language like lugwere, luganda and experiencing the culture of the local communities.
    We happen to be leading a registered Community Based Organization (C.B.O) founded with an objective of alleviating poverty, illiteracy, counseling and guidance among the communities of Budaka and Pallisa plus the neighboring areas restoring hopes and dreams to the less fortunate children and their families.
    As an organization, we strive to provide good quality education, health care, farming equipment and empowering the disadvantaged children and their families to have success in their homes.
    We are blessed with a lovely, loyal, intelligent and welcoming family. A family with good integrity and hospitality to all volunteers and locals visiting around from different corners of the globe.
    Normally in our culture, families gather around during evening times after their duties and share their experiences, stories of long ago, read novels, have laughs and eat together.

  • Hébergement


    Guests will be staying with our family or guest house upon volunteer's wish. Our family has reserved two bedrooms to accommodate couple or single volunteers.. Three meals will be provided a day e.g breakfast before going to work, lunch at 12 pm and dinner after work. local meals like rice, matooke, banana, yams and many others to mention but a few are provided and volunteers can contribute to their dietary specifications if they want. Visitors are free to cook and prepare meals to their standard choices and can be given assistance in case of need and that's if they want too. The community has no running water but we made sure we make plumbing available in the host house and guest house thus we use buckets full of water to flush the toilets after use, and bathing is by use of a basin and a water scooper from the basin to wash one's body.
    We use solar light systems for charging and lighting the house, and electricity has been extended to our villages and we are in a process of installation.
    We have water delivered to the house everyday in jerrycans.
