Program Overview

Program Description:

Beacon of Hope Uganda enables people from around the world to share their skills and expertise with needy communities of Uganda. We facilitate volunteer placements for individual solo travelers and groups, for a minimum of two weeks and we can secure the placement within two days of receiving your inquiry. We offer volunteer programs that will either utilize skills you hold already or give opportunity to learn new skills.

Volunteer travel trips and tours arranged by Beacon of Hope Uganda provide a stimulating and provoking experience. The volunteer travel program and tour deals 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.


Like no other country, Uganda represents the changing faces of recent African history. Behind the people’s optimism and the country’s beauties lie the horrors and ruins of a dark and gloomy past. However, Uganda is more than worth a visit – not just because of its awesome landscape and its incredible bio-diversity. It is simply moving to see how the people overcome the nightmares of the past and how they fight for a normal, settled life.

Orphanage and childcare program, Education and eaching Program and Building and Construction Programs focus on rural communities of Uganda and working with disadvantaged children, youth and women, through provision of quality education, healthcare, access to clean water and community development projects.

Volunteering with our program is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. If you choose to do volunteer work at our orphanage, schools, youth center or just to be part of our outreaches, you need to be adaptable, flexible and prepared to face and hear heartbreaking stories of the people's backgrounds.
