Volunteer in Uganda - International Volunteer Work in Africa
Advance Africa has opportunities available for volunteer in Uganda.
Volunteers work at orphanages, clinics, hospitals as well as primary and secondary schools.
The projects where our volunteers work have little or no resources and would find it difficult to operate without volunteer assistance.
The daily schedules and activities for volunteers are determined by the volunteer with assistance of their project supervisor upon arrival.
Accommodation is arranged with local families.
Volunteer Work in Uganda Orphanages
Uganda Volunteers working in orphanages will usually help with feeding, organizing play, arts and crafts, hygiene and HIV/AIDS education. Volunteers may help with administrative work such as preparing budgets, writing proposals, setting up and maintaining personal files for the children.
Volunteer Teaching in Uganda
The school where volunteers teach normally experience high levels of staff shortages due to inadequate resources and under funding. They are also usually attended by orphaned and underprivileged children. That is why volunteers are very much needed here.
Volunteer teachers teach students a wide range of subjects and practical vocational skills. The skills help improve the student’s career prospects and enable them to reach their full potential.
Volunteer Work in Health Projects (Clinics and Hospitals)
There are a variety of volunteer roles in Uganda clinics and hospitals to fit your abilities and interests. Volunteers may work directly with patients or perform office duties.
Volunteers working in direct patient contact may perform emergency duties; work in surgery settings or in patient support areas. Pre-med students and other students considering a career in health care will find volunteer experience very helpful in solidifying career choices. Doctor-shadowing positions are available.
Volunteers with no medical training can help patients and visitors in waiting rooms, the pharmacy and in patient areas. They also assist staff with daily office tasks, which may include phones, filing, errands, reception and data entry.
Uganda Volunteer Program is open to:
We invite individuals, couples, families, students, researchers, and groups (churches, colleges, and student associations).
Our programs are flexible and volunteers can arrive and depart on any day all year round.
