Branches of Life International
Branches of Life International (BOLI) is a registered non-government organization, which offers a drop-in facility for children and youths aged 4-18 especially the orphaned and vulnerable children who have been on the streets of Uganda.
Go Volunteer Africa‘s volunteer in Uganda program at Branches of Life International is full of opportunities. We invite people of all backgrounds to participate in the endeavor to create a life of dignity for street children, disadvantaged youth and orphaned children in Uganda.
Branches of Life International rehabilitates children who live on the streets and reintegrates them into families and communities as well as mainstream education. Branches of Life International provides basic needs such as food, medical care, education, shelter, and clothing to these children, but most of all, the project equips them with hope.
Go Volunteer Africa with Branches of Life International are dedicated to providing care to children who are orphaned, neglected, abused, underprivileged and vulnerable; while ensuring their physical, emotional, social and spiritual development is nurtured by consistent encouragement instilling within each individual a model of love, safety, purpose, productivity, service to others and trust in God.
Through our volunteer in Uganda program, we are committed to breaking the cycle of poverty, while meeting the emotional, medical, educational and social needs of the children under Branches of Life International’s care.
