Following a successful first trip this summer, we are looking for University of Kent students to head out to Uganda again next summer to volunteer!

You’ll have the chance make a real difference to people’s lives, make new friends, take part in the trip of a lifetime and boost your CV in the process! Living in a volunteer house with fellow students, you’ll spend a month working in projects set up and run by 2 Ugandan NGO’s: CHEDRA (based in Masaka) and UVP (based in Kampala). The core projects associated with the programme are: TeachingHIV testingOrphanage WorkHIV, Health and Community work (consisting of Special Needs education, Construction, Women’s and Agricultural projects). We also encourage a week/two independent travel after (although this is upto you), as it is a beautiful part of the world!​

If you have any questions drop me (Tom) a message on 07718145889 or

Check out the website and like the Facebook Page.

There will be a meeting on campus hosted by two representative of the NGO’s, along with students who went this summer on the 12th of December at 4.30pm in the Red Room, Next to K-Bar.

This is a chance to work directly with grass-roots charities based in the communities they help- not via a gap-year or volunteering organisation. If this sounds like an opportunity you would be interested in, please get in contact with me!

Hope to hear from you soon!

– Tom​
