Beacon of Hope Uganda provides volunteers with meaningful volunteering opportunities. Our volunteer programs include 2 weeks to 24 weeks volunteer work placements all year round. BoHU Volunteers enjoy an extremely unique experience not only in the work they do but also in the atmosphere they live in.

Beacon of Hope Uganda was chosen by Travellers Quest as the best provider of low cost, safe and reliable volunteering opportunities in Uganda.

Enjoy a stimulating and provoking experience by volunteering on one of our projects. The program enables you to absorb the fascinating Ugandan culture whilst sharing your knowledge and skills with the country. The projects will provide an unforgettable eye opening experience for a gap year, vacation, spring break or career break for groups and individual travelers.

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 time you spend volunteering, your destination, and the projects in which you will be involved are all geared to your skills and interests, and the community’s needs.

One of the biggest differences you will notice at the end will not be external but will be the difference inside of yourself. Most importantly, you will be changed forever because you will have a greater understanding of another culture, you will challenge your personal limits, and you will develop friendships.

Volunteering opportunities in Uganda offered by BoHU requires flexibility, patience; those who are self-starters, and people who genuinely respect the host people and their culture. Volunteers never come here to teach the people western ways, nor are here to save the people. Volunteers come to share their energy and time with the people, to experience their culture first hand and to grow themselves.

You may learn a new language, a new culture, and a new way of life. Flexibility and patience are the keys to having a satisfying experience.
