Program Details

We are running children’s support center and we are looking for people who love kids to come and help out. You’ll be rewarded with the smiles of children and knowing you have helped make a difference.


Activities & Shift

You will be working with disabled children and children with learning difficulties to help assist their learning and improve their general learning environment. If you’re into your sports, then sports coaching (any sport) may be a great idea. You can work with enthusiastic children to teach them the skills to play the game. You can be supported by skilled teachers and learn something yourself too!


Rules

Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world with approximately 85% of its population living below the poverty line. The basic rights of many community children are often not met. They will not receive an education, instead being used to complete household chores and babysit while their parents tend the land. Any volunteer tending to work with our children should provide a CRB copy to us.
