More information about Ssamba Foundation Uganda Volunteer Program

We are operating in Kyampisi sub-county in Mukono district, about 35Kms from Kampala city, the capital of Uganda. Kyampisi is a typical rural area with about 60,000 people occupying 60 villages, whose social-economic conditions are very poor. 97% of the residents are subsistence farmers who mainly grow food crops for home consumption.

The result of the above is a very poor economic base with more than 90% of the families living under the poverty line. The main source of income for people is farming, whose produce price has drastically fallen.

Our priority program is Water, Education, Environment, Social-Economic and Health. We are mobilizing the community to put up a community resource centre, which will be rendering general social services to the community.

For this reason, we would prefer to keep costs as low as possible. There is no obligation to fundraise, but if you do manage to raise some money you can put it directly into the project where you are volunteering. Here you can see exactly how your money is being used to help.

WHO WE ARE:

Ssamba Foundation is a community based development not-for-profit organization which was founded in 2006 by Rotarian Isaac Ssamba. Ssamba Foundation provides long-term sustainable solutions to problems in rural Uganda which are mainly caused by poverty.

Ssamba Foundation collaborates with local, national and international partners in order to bring about sustainable improvements of life in Mukono District of Uganda in which it works. The organization’s head office is located in Kyampisi sub-county, Mukono District, Uganda.
Ssamba Foundation aims to improve the living conditions for the rural poor regardless of their faith, origin or gender with an emphasis on children, youth and women.

VOLUNTEERING IN UGANDA:

Volunteering in Uganda through Ssamba Foundation is extremely affordable, you only contribute towards your meals, airport pickup and accommodation to book and confirm your placement.

As a volunteer participant, you are also responsible for your flight, visas and living costs. We appreciate your time and allow you to use your compassion and skills to help make the world a better place.

The volunteer placements organized by Ssamba Foundation are with local projects and will be the most rewarding part of your stay. Almost everyone finds the first week of volunteering difficult between the language barrier and culture shock, but those challenges are so worth it when you start to feel at home in your project and begin to figure out what you can offer to help.

APPLY FOR THE UGANDA VOLUNTEER PROGRAM NOW!

We arrange volunteer placements in Uganda at a variety of different projects falling under a number of categories. You can chat to past and current volunteers if you wish. Most of these projects are working towards long term sustainability.

We have a set number of placements at each project, according to their needs. Please read through the placements listed to get an idea of what we do, but for a more detailed description please contact us via email. The earlier you apply, the wider range of projects there will be to choose from.

UGANDA VOLUNTEER PROJECTS:

Latest comments on Ssamba Foundation Uganda Volunteer Program

this volunteer trip to uganda was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. i stayed a total of three weeks in mukono doing the childcare support work and it is the best travel experience of my life so far. i spent most of my days working on creative projects with “my” kids. the caretakers and volunteers at the children’s centre made me feel so welcome. the centre needs more volunteers, please join them. from the moment i stepped into uganda, i felt like meeting long lost friends. i stepped out of the airport to a warm welcome from sandie (my sweet little ugandan sister). mr. ssamba’s family made me feel so comfortable living with them. the support stayed top notch as the everyday love from home to work was extraordinary. the living accommodation was comfortable and local dishes – wow! this program made me grow as a person and opened my eyes to the world. the weekends were always filled with trips and safaris, i got the chance to explore the murchison falls safari park too, mr. ssamba organized everything for us. i highly recommended ssamba foundation without a doubt!
