Established in 2009, our growing NGO addresses the need for community empowerment amongst the marginalized and vulnerable people of Eastern Uganda. Our primary focus is to holistically rehabilitate and restore victims of social injustice. We enable communities through primary and secondary education, vocational training and income generating activities, palliative care and financial development support for peasant farmers.

Our teams currently operate 5 nursery schools, a secondary school, an HIV outreach project, a carpentry workshop, a horticultural farm and an empowerment academy, all of which accept volunteers who work alongside the local communities.

Whether you have an applicable skill, or you simply want to contribute to aid initiatives in Africa, we openly welcome you. You can work for as many projects as you wish, and for as long as you wish. This flexibility will also allow you to see the local area Sipi Falls, the source of the Nile river and Mount Elgon; trips that we can help you organise to make your visit to Uganda a memorable one!

Besides catering for their feeding, volunteers make a contribution of 2 Euros per day towards their accommodation and utility costs at the volunteer house. We also have host families, where, in addition to having free food (basic local meals) the above contribution reduces to 1 Euro per day.
