Volunteer Work in Uganda

Volunteer Programs Uganda

In Uganda there are opportunities in a variety of fields, each of which is certain to make a decisive difference to people’s lives in a country which has been blighted by problems for decades and where half of the population are under 18, many of them living on the streets. Volunteer projects in Uganda are centred in Kampala and include work in orphanages, clinics and hospitals, as well as primary and secondary schools.

Volunteering overseas - particularly in a challenging environment - is an experience you will look back on with pride. It will bring a greater understanding of, and compassion for, humanity. With volunteers in Uganda coming from many walks of life and generations, it is often a way of forging new and lasting friendships. Volunteering in Uganda gives you the chance to live amongst a population urgently requiring help.

Uganda is toward the east of Africa and borders the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda. The bulk of the country comprises a plateau, which is 4,000 feet above sea level. Lake Victoria occupies a large part of the south of the country. While predominantly Christian, Uganda has many cultures living within its borders, and several African languages are spoken.

The programs that Love Volunteers is involved with have few resources and would find it difficult to operate without the valuable input and assistance from our volunteers in Uganda.
