God's children care centre is a busy and vibrant place to work and there’s always room for volunteers to join us and help out. Just bring your time and energy to make a difference and experience life in Uganda.
Volunteering at God's children care centre
Volunteer opportunities are extremely varied and involvement can range from a few days to a few months or longer or anything in between. All that we ask is that volunteers have an interest and desire in supporting the vulnerable children and their families that are at the heart of our work. You will not only gain experience working with a small NGO but also have an exciting time experiencing life in Kampala and seeing the highlights of Uganda – the ‘Pearl of Africa’.
God’s children care centre has a fully staffed team, however there’s room for anybody looking to volunteer their time and energy. An open mind and forward-thinking attitude will make the most of your time with us. Due to our emphasis on personal community engagement our volunteers can get as involved as they wish. This includes time spent in the community – the slums of Western Uganda – and in the office. Opportunities include helping out in almost all areas of our work such as our school, library, holiday programme, afternoon youth programme or social work team amongst others.
Our goal is to create a well-rounded experience of what it’s like to work for a small organisation on the frontlines of development work. Each person has a different skill set and because of our small size we try and utilize every volunteer who walks through the door to their full potential. The skills you’ve acquired from other jobs, volunteer placements, life experiences, and educational achievements can all be used here in some capacity.
