Mission Statement

We improve the living conditions of the local communities through community projects, education and training.


When volunteering you help to build upon work that started in 2007. A Ugandan NGO was formed by members of a rural community in South-West Uganda. They developed a local school for orphans & other children from poor families, and started community based projects that will equip the villagers with the skills and knowledge to face a safer and brighter future.

The project itself is well integrated into the community and those undertaking volunteering work are always given a warm welcome, especially by the local children who love spending time with volunteers from all ages and backgrounds.

Volunteering at Uganda Lodge is suitable for families, gap year teenagers, seniors etc.

We facilitate teaching projects, medical electives and ethical tourism in the wider community.

For medical students we can facilitate your official medical elective placement. Staying at Uganda Lodge could also count for the residential section of the Gold DofE Award and Queens Scout/Cuide Awards.
