AIDS has greatly increased the number of orphans in Uganda. These children are left in poverty and unbearable conditions without parents to care for them. Volunteers are needed in our orphanage projects to teach basic English and other subjects (Math and Science), help in organizing activities for the children, and provide both care and much-needed companionship. Volunteer in Orphanage project in Uganda will also help the children prepare for school by assisting them with their homework and ensuring that they complete their assignments/lessons. Currently, we work with more than three local orphanages within Kampala.

- Skills/Qualification. There are no specific qualifications needed to join the orphanage volunteer project. However, volunteers are expected to be flexible and patient. You should have passion and love for orphans.

- Volunteers Responsibilities. Some of your volunteer responsibilities include tutoring (mostly teaching English) to the children at the orphanage where they are home-schooled and assisting/educating them in areas of personal hygiene (brushing, flossing their teeth). In the afternoons/evenings, you will organize activities, games, sing-a-longs and dances as well as other creativity-based activities to teach the children. Volunteers will also help with homework and observe academic progress. You will be kept busy during the day when the children are in school by helping clean, cook as well as working in the garden.

- Room/Food. We make all necessary arrangements regarding room, food and supervision from the beginning to the end of the program. While participating in the first week's language and cultural immersion classes, participants stay with a host family near the city. While volunteering, participants stay with either a host family or at the orphanage – in a separate room with a shared bathroom.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.
