The Experience

The Freedom Program is a NGO that helps to give education for more than 60 kids, orphans and kids from very poor families that can't afford the school fees. We are running some business in the community that give us some income. All the profit goes to pay the school fees for the kids, their uniforms, books, medicines, and any bills related to their education. We need your help to build and maintain our business which the profit goes to the kids.

The Freedom Program is amazing, the NGO is changing the life of 70 kids nowadays providing them education and avoiding them of work. They really make a good impact on the community and they are on right track to be sustainable and don't need on donations anymore.
I recommend this volunteer for everyone, you'll be contact with local, in a small and beautiful community in Nankoma and you can enjoy working to help the NGO grow and help more kids be added to the program.

Tiago was so an amazing person who liked to work with both us and the community, he helped us buy balls and cones for the players, also bought us timber for the freedom pub which is going to be part of income to pay school fees for the children, he trained football every day and to mention but afew . We miss him so much in our project!
