We place you with Ugandan peers, using your natural skills to catalyze their start-up social enterprises. All the while, you’ll be enjoying discovering the real Uganda and learning about creating global social change. And you'll continue to volunteer remotely after your travels.

At the end of the 3 weeks, you will have helped ventures to progress with their strategic plans, and will depart with the intention to continue volunteering remotely with the friends from at least one venture.

  • EFFECTIVE - Use your skills, fresh perspective, and passion to develop systemic development solutions, with the potential for helping many more people than they could physically interact with over a short-term trip.
  • EQUITABLE - Peer-to-peer collaborations are the most appropriate form of international volunteering. You’re not going to be given undue decision-making power; you are going to have a real impact.
  • ENDURING - Continue to be involved with your Ugandan partners over the internet on returning home. The trip is just the tip of the iceberg!
  • EDUCATIONAL - Experiential learning is (by far!) the best way to learn about social entrepreneurship. UniTED’s initial training and on-going guidance provides a unique platform to attain important skills that will be useful throughout your career.
  • ENJOYABLE - Out of peer-to-peer collaborations naturally flow friendships and a genuine experience of Ugandan culture with all its nuances – not just the typical foreign volunteer experience.

Amazing way to experience Uganda and make an impact

My time volunteering in Uganda with UniTED was an amazing experience. It was a great way to experience Uganda, getting to spend time with people my age and see different parts of the country. I loved the volunteering itself as each day I had something interesting to work on. I feel that the experience helped me gain practical skills which I still use today and greatly developed my ability to work as part of an international team.
