Western Uganda, like much of Uganda, is home to many poor families with many children being orphans with no caring adult looking out for them. As such there are many volunteer work programs that need you to help out mainly at schools or providing care in orphanages. Although working with street children in Western Uganda is hard work and seemingly unrewarding, volunteer work with most children is an enriching experience for both the volunteer and the children themselves who crave the love and extra attention you can provide. Here we share some of the projects we value in western Uganda however many more can be found at www.african-volunteer.net.
