Vad ingår?
This community project in Jinja is run together with a British registered charity and Ugandan NGO, and aims to improve the quality of life through education as well as create an empowered and self-sustaining society taking responsibility for its own development.
Uganda is a country of staggering beauty - a lush green land whose stunning and diverse countryside supports incredible wildlife - lions, elephants, cape buffalo, leopards, rhinoceros, and half of the world’s population of mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. Become part of a rural community village and experience true East African culture.

In recent years, the Ugandan government pledged free primary education across Uganda, in keeping with the millennium goals of universal education. This project focuses on this realm of education. Project leaders on the ground in Uganda thoroughly research each potential project to assess its long-term sustainability and its contribution to development. You will join like-minded volunteers to assist communities to improve their living situation in rural Uganda and get involved in assisting teachers in the classroom and running after-school activities, especially in sports clubs.

The children in the program are aged 4-15 years and live in underdeveloped areas. Working alongside local teaching staff, spending time with the kids and staying in the villages, you will become an essential part of the community. These projects will tackle needs that have been identified to ensure that your financial and physical investments are sustained long into the future. Tackling side projects such as educational art projects or competitions will inspire your community to work with you and achieve their goals alongside you and other volunteers.

Volunteer Tasks

Volunteer working hours are usually 08:00-16:00 with breaks during the day. Volunteers work 5 days a week. The volunteers’ mornings are either spent helping in a school or building in the community. You will be introduced to the different projects in your orientation. This is your volunteer experience and the timetable can be suited to where you feel most comfortable. Below is a description of our different projects.

Pre-Schools 8:30-12:30
We suggest volunteers run small group activities with the children. This gives the children an opportunity to have some more quality time (usually they are in a class of 30!). Once the school day has finished then volunteers can speak with the teachers about activities for the next day. We do have resources at the pre-schools but we do encourage volunteers to bring things with them if they have specific activities in mind (such as art or sports games).

Amagezi Education Centre 09:00-17:00
Here the volunteers can assist in the lesson running, although there is sometimes difficulties with language and so often our volunteers get stuck in making resources for the lessons - which is of course extremely vital.

After School Club 15:00-18:00
We run an afterschool club at one of our residential Special Educational Needs units. The volunteers go up and run group activities with the children - an absolutely fantastic programme where both the volunteers and the children gain a lot. Again we have lots of resources for this in terms of sports equipment, but if the volunteers want to do anything different/more specific, they are very welcome to bring things with them (such as art materials).

SEN Clinic 8:30-17:00
The clinic actually runs throughout the week, but Friday is by far the busiest day when volunteers are very much welcomed. The clinic operates both occupational and physiotherapy, as well as small teaching activities. Volunteers can assist with the physiotherapy and keep children busy that are waiting for their therapy. There is also a clinic at the Kybirwa Children’s Centre that helps several children with special educational needs at the moment. During this clinic volunteers can assist with the teaching aspect of the clinic, running group games and doing basic maths and literacy activities.

School Infrastructure: All Day
This programme can be run on any day, but we do it as an induction day for all new arrivals and so have incorporated it into your volunteers timetables on those days also. It’s a fantastic way to get out into the village, and will also be a great way for them to meet all the new arrivals. Painting the schools can be one of the activities done during this programme.

Language

Because of the poor standard of English (for most of the very young children at the school Lusoga is their first language and then very rudimentary English), teaching any core academic subjects will be a language challenge for international volunteers. The pre-school children are still young and learning, the students at the Education may know some basic English, and the children at the SEN clinics and SEN glass are also still learning. However, there will be teachers and other staff to help overcome the language barriers. Furthermore, we already have qualified teachers employed at the schools, so the volunteers will mainly be assisting and not doing the actual teaching. Arts and crafts classes, and PE (which could include football, netball, cricket, rounders, baseball etc.) can be taught after school finishes at 15:00. Any materials for such classes should be brought with you (only basic stationery is available locally) and can be donated to the school on your departure. We have a local crew leader who can help with translating.

Every project is unique and the experience is enriched by your input and commitment - the more you put into your project, the more you will get out of it.

School Terms

Please take note of the term dates; as our project heavily revolves around the school terms. We do have programmes running outside of these terms. If you are planning on staying with us outside of term/during Christmas or any other holiday, please contact us to find out what is going on during that time.

Term 1: runs from the beginning of February until the end of April
Term 2: runs from mid-May until the beginning of August
Term 3: runs from the beginning of September until the beginning of December

Weekends

Weekends during the project are generally free, and most of the time volunteers use this opportunity to travel and see some of the area. You will be based in Jinja.

There are many adventurous activities to do around Jinja which include whitewater rafting, kayaking, swimming, quad biking, archery, and bungy jumping. If you plan on doing rafting or any other adventurous sport, please ensure your travel insurance covers these activities.

If a relaxing break is needed, you could take a trip to one of the Ssesse Islands on Lake Victoria where you can sit back on one of the jungle-clad beaches and enjoy the local freshwater fish, Tilapia.

Participating in this project is all about personal development, rather than being provided with a pre-organized activity holiday. For this reason project leaders do not organise weekends, and we encourage volunteers to make their own plans. The volunteer coordinator and volunteer manager are always available to advise on local transport, good places to go etc. and volunteers usually travel in small groups. Please note that travel costs, accommodation and food during weekends are the responsibility of volunteers.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Boende

You will be staying at Mama Flo's Guest house in Jinja. Beds are foam mattresses and bedrooms are shared with your fellow volunteers and crew. You may have a social area such as a living room and there may be a garden to relax in after school. Storage will be limited and your backpack must have a lockable compartment in it. Your accommodation is selected in a secure location in close proximity to the school. A local cook is provided who often will be a member of the host family within whose house you are staying.

Your house will not have running water. There is a shower cubicle either indoor or outdoor, in which you can make use of the traditional 'bucket shower'. Ten minutes down the road you will find water at the Nile River Camp. Electricity may not be available but alternatives will be provided usually paraffin lamps which create quite a cozy environment in the evenings. You can charge your phone at least every weekend if you choose to do independent travel away from the project site.

We expect you to keep your room and personal belongings tidy at all times and participate in any chores as required for the cleanliness of the shared facilities.

Lokal transport

Arrival Information
Your transport from Entebbe to Jinja will be with the Pineapple Express Shuttle. The shuttle leaves Entebbe at 14:30 and will take you straight to your accommodation at Mama Flo’s in Jinja, where you will arrive at 19:00. It may take you up to an hour to clear immigration, collect your bags and get through customs. Once you are outside in the busy pick up area look for your Pineapple Express Shuttle driver, he will be holding a Pineapple Express signboard and wearing the T-shirt.

If you have any trouble or miss your flight you can call:
SAVE Reservations: +27 73 333 4338
Volunteer Manager: +256 (0)792 070172 / +256 (0)772 620498
Pineapple Express Shuttle: +256 (0)787 992277 / +256 (0)753 794030

If your flight arrives later than 14:30, you should arrive on a Sunday. The volunteer organisation will assist with booking extra accommodation and transfers for Sunday night.

Getting to the Project
The project sites are within walking distance or a short boat ride away. These costs for local transportation vary and are paid locally, but approximate costs are around USD 1-2 one way.

Departure Information
We will organise for the Pineapple Express to take you back to Entebbe. The shuttle leaves every day at 07:00 from Mama Flo’s in Jinja and arrives in Entebbe at 10.00. If your flight is earlier than this, we can help you organise to stay in Entebbe the night before.

Måltider

At your accommodation you will have a local cook who will cook at the house on charcoal stoves. The food will be of good local standard. Breakfast will be a simple affair consisting largely of bread, jam and fruit, and dinner will consist of good quality local food; this being any combination of rice, potatoes including sweet potatoes, ugali (a maize meal stiff porridge), chapattis, spaghetti, cabbage, spinach, beans, seasonal vegetables, eggs, beef stew, with sauces of a tomato base. Most meals are vegetarian.

You will be given a 5000 UGX allowance per day for lunch. This can be used to order lunch from Mama Flo, or you can use it towards a meal in the village or local camp site.

Please also help our crew by notifying them on time of any food items that we are running low on. We make weekly shopping trips to the market, which you may want to join with the cook. We can cater for most dietary requirements; it’s just important that you inform us of them before you arrive. However, we do not cater for picky eaters, so please be respectful of the local food, cultures, traditions and give everything a try.

Ample drinking water will also be provided at the house and the school, this being clean spring water that has been boiled thoroughly and kept in a sterile covered container. Bottled drinking water can also be bought in Kampala.

Please note: We need to be informed on any dietary needs or restrictions prior to your departure. Volunteers with very specific dietary requirements may be required to supplement their meals at their own expense.

Observera att

Important Information Regarding Visas
Visas for Uganda are required by most nationalities. Visas are available at the point of entry (ie. airports and land borders) to most nationalities, however, some nationalities require visas to be purchased in advance. All nationalities should check with the Ugandan Embassies for more information as requirements do change from time to time. The type of visa you need is a Tourist Visa that has a validity of 3 months and allows you to simply be in Uganda. To purchase your visa on arrival, you will need new, clean American dollars in cash. The cost for the visa is around $50 USD.

Completing Your Landing Card & Visa Arrival Form
Our partner is an international social enterprise that supports local NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) and CBOs (Community Benefit Organizations). As you are undertaking a relatively short travel experience with us, you are classed as a 'tourist'. If you mention that you are doing 'voluntary work', you may be charged for a more expensive visa and also asked to fill in lengthy forms which we can hold no responsibility for.
