VOLUNTEER WITH SHULE IN UGANDA
Do you want to become a Shule volunteer and improve the lives of homeless boys living on the streets of Uganda?
Volunteering with Shule will immerse you in the community, living and working with locals. You will have the opportunity to learn the local language, enjoy authentic Ugandan food, experience the culture, and visit the beautiful sites that give the Pearl of Africa its name while knowing you are positively impacting the lives of boys living on the streets across Uganda.
As a Shule volunteer, you play a crucial role in addressing the needs of Uganda’s street children. Participate in any of our volunteer experiences and empower street-connected boys through your service.
As a teaching volunteer, you will help the boys improve their English and mathematics to prepare them for their return to formal vocational education. As for those interested in the arts and sports, you can lead weekly classes in dance, arts and crafts, and soccer. Have something else to offer? Just let us know! We want our boys to benefit from your passions.
Shule opens its Drop-In-Center doors to the boys living on the streets who need medical care two days a week. As part of these programs, under the supervision of a registered medical professional, you will help clean and dress wounds, test for Malaria, distribute deworming pills, and much more.
Shule offers computer training to street-connected boys. Our computer school teaches basic computer skills, data entry, photoshop, and video editing with the intent to expand into networking, web design, and coding. Share your computer knowledge with the boys and help prepare them to enter the digital era and compete in the global IT job market.
Twice a month, Shule organizes large slum outreaches outside of Kampala. We partner with local and government organizations to offer street-connected children access to showering facilities, haircutting, and medical care (including basic wound care, HIV and STD testing, and counseling). The children eat two nutritious meals, participate in outdoor activities and competitions, dance, sing, and just be kids for the day. As a volunteer, there are other ways you can participate in this. However, these events are not to be missed.
Shule owns 20 acres of land in Kigumba, Ug, 4 hours outside of Kampala, where we plan to build a school for at-risk homeless boys. We also want to expand our egg-laying social enterprise by adding chicken coops, staff quarters, and a storage facility. This is an excellent opportunity for small or large groups who want to experience a meaningful service trip to build something life-changing for children in need.
