Hello, I am Masereka.
In 2017, we created a new organization in Kasese , Uganda. Our organization is focusing on supporting struggling children within our society by providing free education and social support. Our long-term goal is to reduce the amount of street children and poverty not only in our region, but throughout the entire country. So far our efforts have been largely successful, as most of our former pupils have achieved their goals.
We are looking for any volunteers willing to support our organization, as we know that different people from different places can motivate and help our teachers learn new methods of teaching and development. We are very open to any suggestions and we are gladly willing to let our volunteers teach whatever they want to share with our pupils. In exchange for helping us, we offer our volunteers many opportunities to discover African culture. Also we are welcoming any of the volunteers who will help us creating a website for our school as well.
We are working to provide free education to children as young as 3/4 years to 6/7 years all the way from different parts of the country with the aim of eradicating street children for good.
We are a recognized and registered organization under the law of our country. Volunteers are required to get the appropriate volunteering visa to volunteer with our organization.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Our volunteers will live in a typical Ugandan family home. They will experience African culture firsthand through living style, food, and daily activities. There are plenty of opportunities to learn Lukonzo from locals. We can also arrange classes for volunteers if there is interest.
On days off, we are happy to arrange trips for our volunteers, including safaris, museums, parks, and other expeditions. There are many sights to see in and around Kasese, where our organization is located.

Our work is to give all the children an opportunity to receive the an education, which is the reason why there is currently the high number of the children being hosted in the classroom. With help and support within the community and across the world our organization want to grow and expand their vision so that every children is given the best education possible.
Our students are very passionate to learn, read books and see their dreams come true and in order to continue and expand this we are looking for volunteers to assist us in our project: writing up ideas, design project proposals and then submit them to the donors for the purpose of moving our project forward.
As we are running a nursery school with children aged 3-5/6. Volunteers can give basic English lessons (counting, vocabulary, etc.) and childcare to the children. Therefore we are interested to hear from people who will help us in that area while experiencing cultural exchange with our society.
We need volunteers to help us in teaching children at our our day care school in kasese,give them some mentorship and relevant trainings in games and sports,teach them some skills like listening,spiritual skills and good eating manners.
We also need people who could teach some subjects to our learners like accounting, reading and writing.
More so, volunteers who can can expose our learners to the environment so exposing them to the surroundings if possible take them to fields tours,train them hands on skills as our learners easily adopt to the existing environment.
Nevertheless,volunteers who would train our learners computer skills to fight computer illiteracy among our learners.
