Volunteering in Uganda with our foundation gives you an opportunity to improve the lives of poor Ugandans through humanitarian work, medical intervention, education and conservation. We focus on individual and community education to improve all aspects of the lives of children and adults.
Skilled and dedicated participants volunteering in Uganda work in partnership with us, wherever possible adopting a holistic approach to solving and providing long term solutions to problems faced by people living in primitive conditions, mainly in the little visited rural areas of Uganda where the infrastructure of towns itself is good for Uganda.
Beacon of Hope Uganda is working towards all children in Uganda having access to their basic necessities. Working with the youngest and most vulnerable, the children, BoHU provides community-based development programs, humanitarian aid, health care, education in Uganda.
Our programs are designed to give hope to street children, orphans and abandoned and abused children, children with disabilities and those from very poor families. We serve children without discrimination of race, religion, or sex. We aim to create partnerships between communities, youth groups and schools across the World.
While working with Beacon of Hope Uganda, volunteers learn about the real situation at the grassroots level in Uganda. Life in Uganda is tough for everyone, not just HIV/AIDS patients, orphans and refugees. Wages are low, corruption is rampant, and education is not universal. In spite of this, Ugandans are some of the most welcoming, friendly, and open people in Africa.
Volunteers become part of the family, learning about the local culture: how to cook, how to speak the language, how to sit peacefully with their neighbors and talk about life in general. We hope that volunteers take that knowledge home with them, spreading the word about Ugandan development issues and culture around the world.
Volunteers may work in orphanages, schools, poor communities and villages, in mobile medical clinics, health units and in rural, fairly remote rural landscapes doing conservation work for the preservation of landscapes, eco-systems and wildlife and also for ancient and historic sites – such as rock paintings and engravings at Nyero and similar Stone Age sites.
Beacon of Hope Uganda has an excellent track record since 2006, of delivering and implementing aid, and providing food, education, medical care and community outreaches program serving people in Uganda
Beacon of Hope Uganda is driven by the desire to see these poor homeless children provided them with the basic necessities of life. Volunteer with us today, please send an email to inquire about what we are working on now.
