Children of Uganda Charity Profile

There is an orphan crisis in Uganda. Currently the country is home to nearly 2.4 million children who have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS, extreme poverty and civil conflict. In fact, Uganda has the largest orphan population per capita of any country in the world.

Originally called the Uganda Children’s Charity Foundation, Children of Uganda was established in 1995 to care for orphans and other disadvantaged children in Uganda with the goal of helping them become healthy and productive members of society.

As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in the United States, Children of Uganda works in conjunction with local non-governmental organizations in Uganda to provide education and support to over 600 children in need.

The mission of Children of Uganda is to support and empower hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda to lead successful and productive lives. Our vision is that all children in Uganda receive an education to become healthy, productive members of their community who assume leadership roles and positively impact Ugandan society.

Children of Uganda Volunteer Information

Children of Uganda offers an excellent opportunity for individuals and groups to work directly with the children in its orphanages in Uganda. The children are bright, curious, and love to receive visitors. Our volunteers always return home with life-long memories and an enriched perspective of the world.

Volunteers have the opportunity to visit Children of Uganda's orphanages and help out in a number of ways. They can help children learn to read or use a computer, play a game of soccer with a student, help the nurse, paint the interior of a dining hall, or read a bedtime story to a child. Any special skills are bound to come in handy, but you don't need to be an expert in anything - just willing to share your love and life experiences.

After many years of instability, Uganda is now safe for visitors, and during your stay you can take time to see some of the most beautiful sites in the world - the source of the Nile River, Bujagali Falls, Mabira Forest, or a safari in one of Uganda's National Parks. You are, however, advised to research the health and safety risks of travel to a tropical, developing country such as Uganda. Volunteers often seek sponsorship from family, friends and co-workers to raise the required funds for the trip. Prices fluctuate seasonally and depend on the city of departure, but the cost is around $3,000 for a 14-day trip, which includes airfare and accommodations.
