Volunteering with UgaIrish

Who volunteers

Volunteers, Autumn 2014
Volunteers, Autumn 2014

All sorts of people, of all sorts of ages. We have had students in their teens, retired people in their 70s, and all ages in between. If you are under 18, you must get a parent or guardian to come too. You don’t need any particular skill, but a willingness to get stuck in and help is good.

What they do

Eye Tests
Eye Tests

Building, repairing, roofing, painting, eye-testing, preparing food parcels, distributing food parcels, teaching, nursing, talking, praying … have a look at the photo journals

What it costs

With flights, transport, accommodation and food, and usually a visit to one of the Ugandan national parks, about €1300 for two weeks. Vaccinations and anti-malarial tablets will probably cost around €200.

Other stuff

Irish passport holders do not need a visa for Uganda. If you think you might like to participate, download, complete and return to us the application form and medical certificate. We can then contact you to arrange an interview.
