VOLUNTEER AND IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE UGANDAN CULTURE
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
If you are interested in participating in our volunteer and cross-culture exchange program, write to us and we will work with you to identify your best placement options in Uganda.
Our Volunteer Program is an immersion program customized for individual travelers, students, professionals, families, groups, or anyone with the desire to serve in rural villages in Uganda. The timetable you travel, your village destination, and the projects you may be involved with are all geared to your skills and interests, and the villages' needs.
The program is collaboration between Beacon of Hope Uganda and the under-served rural villages. We are committed to meeting the needs of our communities, and to placing developmental volunteers in programs that provide safe and meaningful experiences.
Because it is an immersion experience, days in the villages allow for a variety of opportunities. And whether you work in a clinic, school, or orphan home, participate in building or agricultural projects, or simply assist in the day-to-day tasks.
Beacon of Hope Uganda works closely with each volunteer to ensure comprehensive preparation, including both an understanding of the people with whom you will be working, and all considerations necessary for travel overseas.
Are you interested in being a volunteer, but would like more information?
