Review this Program

Location

Uganda: Kampala, Mukono, Rural Areas

Description

We offer affordable volunteer and intern abroad programs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The programs are customized for you with flexible work schedule and start date. Affordable program fees start from only USD 180 (accommodation, meals, and 24/7 local support included). Our programs are designed to help local communities while at the same time providing valuable learning and cultural experience.

In Uganda, millions of people in many communities suffer from effects of chronic poverty diseases and live on less than one dollar a day. This is much from being illiterate and lack of education. Fifty percent of the population is illiterate. Because of illiteracy and ignorance they are unable to effectively improve their lives using local available resources. HIV/AIDS scourge wiped off the energetic people leaving the elderly to take care of their grandchildren. As a volunteer, you are needed and you can make a difference in Uganda.
