One day Volunteering
What is the One Day Volunteering Programme? Here at World Action Fund we recognise that not everyone is in a position to stay in Uganda for an extended period of time and volunteer with us, so we established our very popular ‘One Day Volunteer’ Programme which does exactly what is says on the tin: an opportunity to volunteer with us for just one day. Why do we run a One Day Volunteering Programme? – One day volunteers are absolutely integral to WAF’s success. WAF in 2014 solely thanks to the generous donations of both money and time from One Day Volunteers. Individuals would stop in Arua on their journey through Uganda, wanting to do a bit more than simply travel through, they would hear about the work of WAF and spend a day or two of their time assisting with the work we were doing here on the ground. – Today the programme is not only historical but it remains highly successful: in 2014 alone, 20 individuals spent one day with us and donated in kind over $67,375 inform of 250 wheel chairs and 40 tricycles from a team of Walkabout Foundation UK
Long Term Volunteering
What is Long Term Volunteering Long Term Volunteering is a bit of a deceptive term, because of our One Day Volunteering programme, this simply means anyone who is volunteering for more than a day or two! Long Term Volunteers volunteer with us for anything from a week through to twelve months (or more!). They are based in and around Bujugali and work on our programmes in Jinja. Within the Long Term Volunteering programme you will assist with a variety of projects
No experience is necessary to volunteer, and all sectors of groups are welcome. We will teach you everything you need to know , and there are a variety of tasks both indoors and outdoors to participate in that require all levels of skill and ability. We also can offer tailored experiences to fit your group such as a focus for students, singles or small groups or technical experts, we welcome those who bring projects.
