This is the Deal
Experience Africa by combining valuable placements with; White water rafting, Gorilla and Chimp trekking and Wildlife viewing Safaris. Our vision is to inspire a generation to be all that they can be; to awaken a sense of life-purpose and belonging, and unite them as part of a global community who can work together to rise to the challenges of the world we live in. We provide combined gap year opportunities for people from all walks of life, nationalities and ages to get out there and rise to the challenges of life in Africa. To explore Uganda in 2-8 weeks throughout the year where you can volunteer on Children, Education and sustainable community projects, plus an adventure experience. Get off the beaten track, explore new cultures and make a genuine difference.
Volunteers are accommodated in a volunteer house where you will live with a local host and other volunteers. Living is basic but the volunteer houses have electricity and running water (most of the time - sometime running water does run out). Some rural accommodation may not have electricity or running water during times of drought. You will be living with several other volunteers in a shared private room and the accommodation is regarded as more than adequate considering the normal standards of Uganda. Ugandan food is tasty, diverse and volunteers can expect to experience a myriad of flavors and meals during their Ugandan experience. If volunteers wish to eat out, there are a large numbers of restaurants and diners to suit all tastes and budgets. If you have special eating needs (such as vegetarian), please let us know ahead of time so that we can make arrangements for you. However, we need to stress the point that you should not expect to eat as you normally do at home. We will do our best to see that you are well taken care of, but also as a volunteer, there is a need to be flexible.
What additional costs will I have?
Visa, flights, travel insurance (mandatory), vaccinations, souvenirs, trips or tours you do while in the country, transfer back to the airport from program, spending money (volunteers in Uganda generally find US$30 to be sufficient for basic weekly expenses).
