If you’re someone who loves working with children and is happy to provide support wherever your assistance is most needed, you will be well suited to this project. As a volunteer on this project, you will work within in day care centers, nursery schools, children’s homes and kindergartens to assist local staff in the day-to-day running of these centers and ensuring they operate effectively. Activities vary across the different centers with typical tasks including Bathing, feeding changing of diapers for babies, educational activities and basic teaching of English, Math, Health/Hygiene, Reading and Writing. Other activities include play therapy and games, cleaning, reading stories, dancing, singing, arts and crafts, as well as assisting with feeding and daily chores. As you will be volunteering alongside our local placement staff, you do not need to have previous childcare experience to participate on this project but high energy levels and a willingness to help out wherever your help is most needed is a must. Transport to the childcare volunteer in Uganda project is not included in the Program Fee. Some of the childcare volunteer in Uganda projects is within walking distance from the Volunteer House, but many are further afield. In these latter cases, you will be required to take a Taxis (local bus) to placement. You should budget up to 10 GBP per week for getting to/from the project. It can take up to 45 minutes to travel to your volunteer work in Uganda. Our local team will guide you through the local transport methods during your in-country orientation. You can also always ask them if you are unsure of how much you should be paying for a journey.
