Mission Statement

To end the cycle of chronic illiteracy by identifying the most marginalized children in our partner communities and support them to access education

Description

Friends of Education BWINDI are offering volunteer positions in the beautiful village of Buhoma in south west Uganda. Buhoma is a gateway community to Bwindi National Park. Educate during the week and on weekends take advantage of the rain forest's brilliant scenery, hiking, waterfalls and even potential gorilla sightings or tracking (depending on availability of permits). Buhoma is about two hours from another national park, Queen Elizabeth, and if you want to see the African Savannah and its elephants and tree lions, we can help arrange transportation to that park as well. Regardless, we invite you to be a part of providing education to orphans/vulnerable children and change the lives of these eager learners. The experience will not only provide you a chance to make a difference in the life of students, but also will give you a chance to have authentic interactions with local villagers and to experience how we live. People come as volunteers but leave as friends. Our Mission is to end the cycle of chronic illiteracy by identifying the most marginalized children in our partner communities and support them to access education. Our vision is to create a community in which education is not a luxury for the few, but a reality for all children.
