Go Volunteer Africa offers opportunities to volunteer with Arts, Dance and Music projects in Uganda from one week to three months or more. The arts, dance and music volunteer projects are set up in various communities across Uganda, run by our development partners.
Volunteers in our program experience traditional Ugandan life and participate in daily roles of the project such teaching children various basic instruments from piano, cello and guitar etc. The children are aged between 8 and 19. It is therefore important that volunteers be enthusiastic about music and able to inspire the children to develop both theoretical and practical musical, arts and dance knowledge and skills.

It is important for potential volunteers to understand that the culture in Uganda is quite different from what you are accustomed to. Volunteers should bring with them an easy-going, open-minded and relaxed attitude. Locals are curious, very friendly and social people.

While Go Volunteer Africa and its partner will endeavor to maintain a daily routine, volunteers should understand that things move slowly in Africa. Relax and enjoy the slow pace. Remember that life in Africa is not as organized and predictable as life in developed countries.
Although volunteer work can be very busy and active, at other times work is determined by many number of factors including weather, availability of resources, whether a relevant contact has turned up, cultural activities etc. Volunteer in Uganda with Africa’s leading and largest volunteer travel organization – Go Volunteer Africa.
