EDUCATION

We work with a number of schools and kindergartens to help them with lesson plans, teaching, activities, and general interaction with the kids. Many schools and centres find themselves stretched between the large volume of children they care for. Our volunteers assist with teaching, helping with learning to children who need it, providing educational supplies, playing games and doing arts and crafts. We encourage our volunteers to come to Uganda with ideas for games and activities to do with the kids.  These kids are incredibly intelligent and a lot of fun to spend time with. They love being able to play sports, listen to music, dance and tell stories. In many cases they end up teaching us also. Many of the children we work with are disadvantaged and often struggle to pay school fees, if you would like to help see our sponsorship page.
