MEANINGFUL WORK ABROAD. VOLUNTEERING IN UGANDA
Volunteers needed for a local project in Uganda managed by Terra Varietas.
A foreign mission in Uganda brings a lot of challenges. It´s a school for life and you are right in the middle. Getting to know new people surrounded by amazing nature which invites you to take a closer look, and unique experiences in a different culture are all waiting for you!
The volunteer program begins in January 2017 under the leadership of the non-profit association Terra Varietas. Take the chance and be the first to create a house for the children at the Aggies Baby Home!
Prove your English – Discover Luganda
In the large area of Kampala and also in the project supervised by us, people will speak English with you. And because the people are generally very enthusiastic, foreign-speakers quickly find their way in the language flow. Outside of the dense settlements, people in the South prefer Luganda, the local language.
Gain unique experience in a volunteering program
If you are interested, please write us an email. Perhaps you have questions, which can be clarified personally or by telephone. The first step to registering is to write a non-binding email to us (see below on this page). Then, we will send you information about the availability of a volunteer place, the additional registration formalities, the costs and required visas. A personal conversation will take place at the beginning.
What are the things that are important to you? What can you do well? What do you want to learn? In which area do you want to work? These and more questions can be discussed together. We try to look after our volunteers in the best possible way and prepare them for their stay in Africa. One of our members will be available for you at any time for questions or inquires.
In addition, comfortable accommodation in a brand new and beautiful guesthouse ensures a safe stay for volunteers and guests at any time. The guest house is directly in the project, so the Aggies Baby Home is just around the corner and the New Hope School is also nearby.
Uganda as destination
Uganda is characterized by lakes, the Source of the Nile River, virgin forests and savannahs. The Equator runs in the south of the country.
Nine national parks and six wild reserves testify to the natural beauty of the country and the desire to protect it. They are spread over the country and are mostly located near the borders and less in the center of the country. This protects different landscapes and living communities.
It is worthwhile to get to know the country!
