Job description

Experience a new culture whilst give children their childhoods through play and exploring the beautiful Uganda, all in just four weeks!

“The most incredible experience of my life”

The experience of cross-cultural interactions enriches your life and the world for the better. This is the reason why we provide ethical, transparent and supportive volunteering opportunities to help build a playground in Uganda. And by doing this you will see a change in yourself and the world around you.

By volunteering with East African Playgrounds on our Uganda Volunteer Project you will experience four incredible weeks. Living and volunteering within a local community to help transform a community school by building an amazing new playground from start to finish with a team of trained Ugandan builders and welders. You will also assist on our creative play programme to inspire children at a school to learn, explore and develop themselves.

At the weekends, you’ll have the chance to explore the wonders of Uganda, from discovering the animals on safari to explore the mighty River Nile or taking a relaxing walk along the banks of the river on horseback ... there is something for everyone.

You’ll be guided by our Ugandan build team as well as the international leaders to volunteer alongside the children and community you will be impacting. The whole project comes together on the playground opening day when you will get to see your hard work in action as you celebrate with traditional singing, dancing, food and of course-playing on the new, high quality, safe, fun playground you’ve helped build.
