Volunteer and Immerse Yourself in the Ugandan Culture

If you are interested in participating in our volunteer and cross-culture exchange program, write to us and we will work with you to identify your best placement options in Uganda.

Our Volunteer Program is an immersion program customized for individual travelers, students, professionals, families, groups, or anyone with the desire to serve in rural villages in Uganda. The timetable you travel, your village destination, and the projects you may be involved with are all geared to your skills and interests, and the villages’ needs.

The program is collaboration between Beacon of Hope Uganda and the under-served rural villages. We are committed to meeting the needs of our communities, and to placing developmental volunteers in programs that provide safe and meaningful experiences.

Because it is an immersion experience, days in the villages allow for a variety of opportunities. And whether you work in a clinic, school, or orphan home, participate in building or agricultural projects, or simply assist in the day-to-day tasks.

Beacon of Hope Uganda works closely with each volunteer to ensure comprehensive preparation, including both an understanding of the people with whom you will be working, and all considerations necessary for travel overseas.

Volunteer and Explore Uganda:

We are a comfortable Ugandan family home in Mukono district, 5 minutes walk from town. Really good home, cooking and caring hospitality, well arranged dormitory rooms, a sitting room with a satellite digital T.V and internet for use.

Our (Travelers’ Home) is a family run guest house positioned on the outcast of Mukono town yet near shops. Spacious dormitory rooms and delicious varied home cooking. Special diets catered for, Tea and Coffee making and nice facilities. Open all year round, suits all ages, for tourists and volunteers. It’s a family environment.

Support during preparations:

We offer a safe and family-like environment in which to come to Uganda and give your time. We offer pre-arrival support by answering your questions about Uganda and by finding a project that best fits your skills and interests. We can also connect you to former and current volunteers working with us.

We offer in-country assistance by collecting you from the airport, getting you to your placement, and unravelling some of the more complicated cultural issues you face when entering Uganda for the first time. It is not easy to come to a completely foreign culture on your own. We want to be there to give you encouragement, advice, and support in order for you to be most effective while you are here
