GOALS OF THIS PROJECT:

  • Provide essential care to the vulnerable children of Uganda
  • Improve the future prospects of at-risk children in Uganda
  • Give impoverished children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

Volunteers play an essential role in helping disadvantaged children through this program. Participants will spend their time taking care of children and assisting the local team as needed. Volunteers on this program will assist with a variety of tasks dedicated to the well being of children and can rest assured that their help is making a huge impact on these wonderful children.The work usually undertaken by volunteers in Uganda entails organizing play, assisting with arts and crafts, and helping with meals, hygiene and HIV/AIDS education. At the children’s center, volunteers will be working on schedules alongside local staff. As this program involves working closely with at risk children, a two week minimum commitment is required to participate.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways on this program and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Help to care for the children
  • Help the children with homework
  • Attend to and interact with the children
  • Create activities and entertain the children with games
  • Assist with administration and running the facility

Mission Trips Uganda welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of Uganda.This highly interactive and varied project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist. However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
