Volunteer with Children in East Africa

Freedom project is a non-profit organization, we are a shelter for children coming from families with no structure to give the minimum conditions of life and study. The completion of the Freedom pub shall generate profits that will help in paying school fees for the children in the community,so it will be possible to change all the resident children and are trying to raise funds to be able to turn our place into a small sustainable village that in turn will support other communities.

Volunteers should choose to be with Freedom program because we need help with the education of the children who live here, in addition to the whole community around. as important as the children who live here are our athletes, from 7 to 22 years old, made up of the entire community of Nankoma.

We always require extra hands, knowledge, skills. If you are looking for something meaningful, helping children with your education and leisure, you are welcome here, even without experience you can help our teachers or you can also teach us what you know, we are open to learn and share what we know!

We live in a simple house away from the big city, a real experience on Africa, if you want to live this experience, come and join us!

I am Brian and we are situated in Nankoma village, Bugiri District , eastern Uganda. We are willing to give a simple but cozy accommodation. Our food is homemade, made everyday for all of our house, and you will be part of our family but if you need the special food here you can only pay $70 per a week . The basis of our food comes from local fruits and vegetables and I'm sure you will love our warm tea at the end of the day. After your time here with us, you can go out speaking our local language. We can't give to you the ride for free, but we have a reliable driver who can pick you up for a great price. Our house needs help: Sewing skills, teaching English, helping our soccer team to teach, playing games for our children for leisure time. We always demand extra hands, knowledge and skills in order to improve our structures. Everyone is always waiting for the changes in the project, we are very positive that with the help of the international community, we can do everything in the community.

Volunteering with Children in Nankoma, Uganda, was an incredibly rewarding experience that left a lasting impact on me. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with warmth and enthusiasm by the children in the local village. Their eagerness to learn and engage in activities was inspiring, and it was a joy to spend time with them each day.
Overall, my experience volunteering with Children in Nankoma, Uganda, exceeded all expectations. The opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of young children while immersing myself in a vibrant and welcoming community was truly priceless.

Aisi was so an amazing person who liked to work with both us and the community, she helped us buy some gifts and also made a birthday party for five kids, and she left when all the classes have learnt to count from zero to 25 numbers in Chinese language and up to now the kids are still practicing slowly to mention but a few . We miss her so much in our project!
