Are you seeking a meaningful volunteer experience in one of the most diverse and fauna-rich countries in Africa? Volunteer in Uganda, and have the opportunity to explore the highest concentration of primates on earth, the mesmerizing natural panoramas and a rich mosaic of cultures and tribes, while making a real difference to the lives of those in need. 

Uganda was once described by Sir Winston Churchill as “The Pearl of Africa”. It’s easy to see why. Imagine the best of Africa condensed in just one country. Filled with the most fascinating wildlife, vast national parks, majestic rivers and lakes, and picturesque panoramas, Uganda has heaps to offer from the continent, packed into one small but gorgeous destination. It is home to one of the most diverse ranges of African wildlife and the highest concentration of primates on earth, including the highly-endangered mountain gorilla. Uganda is also home to the highest mountain range in Africa, the Mountains of the Moon in the Rwenzori National Park and the source of the legendary Nile. Despite its beauty and the increased tourist flow, Uganda is still a poor country and lives of the ordinary people are hard. New Hope works with many local organizations that aim to empower the power and encourage development within the local communities. Get in touch with us today to volunteer in Uganda, and experience “The Pearl of Africa” while uplifting the lives of the local people!

In recent years, volunteering has become more of a business than charity. Many organizations in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand run volunteering programs solely for profit. But this is not the case with New Hope Volunteers. Our aim is to offer World's Most Affordable volunteer program (without compromising the quality) so that all volunteers, irrespective of their income level, can volunteer to serve humanity and enrich their life. In our program, except our registration fee of $279,which we need to advertise, cover office expense and pay salary, volunteers pay their money directly to the host family and project (or country coordinator). This ensures that 100% of your money goes for you.

New Hope Volunteers will arrange for the accommodation and meal of the volunteers throughout the program. Volunteers will stay either in a hostel or with a host family. In the hostel, you'll share a room with other volunteers, where you will be able to swap stories and experiences. Our host families have been carefully screened and chosen and they will have experience of hosting international volunteers before. The host families will provide you with a warm, comfortable and secure place to stay. You'll have a room to yourself and eat 3 local meals together with your host family. At least one member of the host family will be able to communicate with you in English. Living with a host family will also provide you with a wonderful opportunity to learn about local culture and customs. During the volunteer program, our country coordinator will be in touch with you every 10-15 days to make sure you're comfortable and happy. Volunteers will also have access to coordinator's mobile phone that can be reached anytime should a problem arise.
