The Community:

This is a rural community, with dirt roads that turn to sticky mud in the rainy season and dust in the dry season. Boda- Boda bikes share the road with bicycles and animals. As in most parts of Uganda, the community members struggle to meet their basic needs and strive to put their children in school. Main jobs include brick making, selling fruits and vegetables, small scale animal rearing and other manual labor jobs.

Volunteer Roles on the Free volunteer abroad programs for couples:

As a couple, volunteering in this program, you will experience traditional Ugandan life and participate in daily activities such as visiting elderly villagers, construction and building, teaching children in outside classrooms, assisting in the setting up vegetable gardens, youth health talks, high school English teaching, feeding animals as well as health outreach programs and so many other activities.

Teaching and Medical Volunteer Work in Uganda:

These free volunteer abroad programs for couples serve the most vulnerable community members in Mukono District. The main focus is providing education and healthcare to hundreds of children and poor dwellers in the surrounding villages. A village school provides English and language lessons, Math, health lessons to children 3yrs-14yrs old for primary and 15-19years for high schools. The school provides not only needed education but opportunities for sports activities, health talks, feeding center and meeting place for the community.
