About

Arlington Academy of Hope (AAH) is seeking volunteers who are eager to make a difference by helping at health clinic in one of Uganda's many "hard to reach" areas. This volunteer position provides an excellent opportunity to learn about international development, gain experience working in a health clinic, and experience life in a small Ugandan village in the mountains.

Many of our volunteers also discover why National Geographic named Uganda a must see by discovering its natural beauty and wildlife, going whitewater rafting at the source of the Nile, and hiking to various waterfalls.

About the Arlington Academy of Hope (AAH):

AAH is a nonprofit based in Arlington, VA that operates in Uganda. It was founded in 2004 by John and Joyce Wanda, a Ugandan couple who sought to help their native country combat poverty through education.

  • Facilitating support groups for members affected with HIV
