Program Description

Volunteer abroad in Uganda and assist in our Community Development Projects. You will help with initiatives aimed at sanitation and water, conservation efforts, youth development, empowering women, and education.

Help to prepare and coordinate workshops with local NGOs, government agencies, communities, and organizations. Help to execute and promote training workshops for education and evaluating and monitoring projects.

You will be a part of ensuring that Go Volunteer Africa continues to promote impactful programs and best practices. We are looking for individuals from a range of backgrounds and experience levels.


Assist with volunteer programs aimed at community development
Work towards sustainable and impactful assistance to the marginalized members of the community
Help with empowerment initiatives
Work with other local organizations and groups to really make a difference on a grassroots level


You will have the opportunity to try different roles and projects, dependent on your interests and skills.

Volunteer in Uganda opportunities do not require specialized skills (although these would be an advantage), and we accept volunteers for both short and long-term placements, all the year round.

Volunteers certainly gain an amazing life experience from their participation in our placement program.

Community development

What`s Included

Volunteer work side by side the locals’ on-going brick construction and water building projects, youth projects, healthcare outreaches and women empowerment projects in the community.

Volunteers needed for manual labor jobs working alongside skilled and unskilled local workers.

Some tasks include farming, animal rearing, construction of the volunteer center, expansion, water well building and renovation work. Volunteers do not need prior experience, but skilled workers are very welcome.

This is a very hands-on, hands dirty sort of program. Enthusiasm, a good sense of humor and helping spirit are required.
