VOHAH offers a volunteer program in Uganda to both residents and international volunteers.. Whether you are a traveller and keen to experience The Pearl of Africa, a student taking a gap year or you have been waiting for that opportunity to arise where you feel that you can make a genuine diffrence in person, VOHAH can assist you with your experience! Our volunteer program gives "the traveller" the opportunity and flexability to combine making a personal diffrence to those in need and see the wonderful sights Uganda has to offer.
You can choose your volunteer placement working within our hospital CHCB or choose a placement in an orphanage, womens empowerment centre or primary school. You can also get involved with our regular distribution of care packages to the community. If you have the drive and organisational skills to make your own packages and bring them with you on your volunteer experience, the feeling of handing out those personal packages that you have created is amazing.
Our volunteer accommodation costs $50 US per night and includes accommodation, breakfast, dinner and transport to and from your volunteer placement. We are currently taking volunteers for placements, however, Volunteers @ VOHAH's House will not be available until mid 2017.
