Volunteering at Uganda Lodge

Who can volunteer?

Volunteering in Africa is for any age group, it is certainly not something reserved exclusively for ‘Gap Year’ students.

It’s always a good idea to talk with someone who has actually visited the project, so you can ask questions and get a feel for whether or not the project is something you would like to be involved in.

If you and your family would feel happier if you had the backing of a well-known UK volunteer company for your African experience, you may like to know that we are the ‘Uganda Project’ for Original Volunteers. Please feel free to book to stay with us through them, although you will need to pay them a small additional admin fee.

At Uganda Lodge, volunteering is suitable for whole families, motivated and self-reliant young people over 18 right through to seniors who are fairly mobile. There are a wide rang of activities that can keep everyone occupied for several weeks or even months at a time.

If you do not hold a current DBS certificate you will be asked to obtain a ACRO SAR1 police check (or give two references) as you are likely to be working with the local children.

Why volunteer?

Have you thought about the benefits you will get from volunteering? If you consider the many benefits you will receive, you will be asking yourself why you aren’t more involved with helping a cause. You will surely get more out of your volunteer experience than you put into it.  Dont hesitate to identify and donate some of your time to a worthy volunteer opportunity. You will be glad you did.
