Program Description: The focus of this service-learning volunteer tourist experience is for tourists, volunteers and interns to expand their own knowledge and happiness while at the same time helping to educate local community members in sustainable developments. Volunteers will have the opportunity to become fully immersed in Ugandan culture as they live, work, learn, and play among local Ugandan families, staff in both rural and semi-urban settings.

This program is 238.75 kilometers (km) from Kampala City in Kamwenge District. In this program with the assistance of our locally trained volunteers you help in the training of other local volunteers to effectively address and educate others about humanitarian and development issues using grassroots methodology.

As in most parts of Uganda, the community members struggle to meet their basic needs and strive to put their children in school. Main jobs include brick making, selling fruits and vegetables, small-scale animal rearing and other manual labor jobs.

As a volunteer in this program, you will experience traditional Ugandan life and participate in daily activities such as visiting elderly villagers, collecting water from a well, teaching children in & outside classrooms, assisting in the brick making programs, teaching in a school, painting in class rooms, participate in Christian ministry work, feeding animals as well as health outreach programs, outreach in Rwamwanja refugee settlement. These programs serve the most vulnerable community members in Kamwenge District.

What makes UVRC Tour and serve initiative unique?

Uganda Vision Resource Centre is a development focused organization with deep roots in here, working tightly with several community development projects. The organization was founded by Ugandan Social workers who understand very well where your experience and skills are needed. Volunteers will be allocated roles in the projects of their choice.

With our volunteer program we allow you to discover the wonders of East Africa, while doing meaningful and rewarding community work. This is a great opportunity to explore life in rural Africa, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.

It is important for potential volunteers to understand that the culture in Uganda is quite different from what you are accustomed to. Volunteers should bring with them an easy-going, open-minded and relaxed attitude. Locals are curious, very friendly and social people. Relax and enjoy the slow pace. Remember that life in Africa is not as organized and predictable as life in developed countries.
