Immersive Summer Abroad Program Uganda

India - with a difference!
We have only a few places left in our program in the Lepcha community in north east India starting on 18 Feb '18 - but you can start later if that date doesn't suit. We are a not-for-profit and, unlike other organisations, we accept no more than 100 each year - so hurry, hurry, hurry and don't miss out on a unique experience!

“So much fun I would do it again 100 times, there are few things better than connecting with a community like this.” Adam, Uganda AV volunteer.

Experience this beautiful African country from the inside - as so much more than a tourist. On our immersive summer programs, you live as the locals do and share your skills with the community. It's an incredible opportunity to give back while gaining a truly global perspective on the world.

Accommodation: You'll live in a self-catered house with the other AV participants while you undertake your project work.

Project: Tell us where your skills lie and we can ensure they are used to the full in one of our partner communities. It could be teaching, sports coaching, art, music, drama, community work... You'll have a lot of independence and freedom to make the most of the project in your own way, but we are always on hand.

Adventure: At weekends, you are free to travel. Bungee jumping or rafting the Nile are unmissable options!

Well organised, great experience

10/10

AV are made up of a great team, who take your experience seriously. They are a small organisation, so can give you much more personal attention than huge organisations, which are solely interested in taking your money. I had a fab time with AV and still see my AV friends regularly.

AV Uganda

9/10

The best thing about AV is the high level of independence you are granted, many projects have day to day leaders telling you when to wake up, how to act appropriately and so forth. whereas AV set you up with a house and a teaching job in one village and the rest is up to you. for me this was exciting and it allowed me to think for myself about what i wanted to get out of the program as well as allowing me to familiarise myself with my surroundings. if you do AV in Uganda you will work hard during the weeks teaching the kids and on the weekends you can party as hard as you want, go white water rafting, bungee jumping, quad biking along the nile, see the gorillas, do a safari. you will not regret going to Uganda with AV it's the best trip you will ever do.

How can this program be improved?

probably more money from AV to do some more classroom repairs would have been nice. but we raised our own before we left (something i would suggest everyone does)
