This summer join a team of other volunteers who will work on a sustainable healthcare project with an aim of constructing a clinic for a rural community in Uganda through our Construction Summer Volunteer Work.
When your volunteer vacation comes to an end, you’ll be tired and a bit dirty. But, you will have made a big difference in the lives of local community. You’ll leave the village with visible proof of the work you’ve done and happy memories of the people you’ve helped.

THE VOLUNTEERING PROGRAM IN UGANDA
This program will promote and improve the quality of healthcare in rural Mukono district of Uganda. The main focus is lifelong healthcare system for sustainable development and improvement on their quality of life.
This is a developed integrated approach to our healthcare support program. The volunteering program is under our Sustainable Healthcare Program (SHP). This approach will focus on construction and facilitation of a clinic in the rural community by teams of developmental volunteers.
Healthcare is the foundation for sustainable development. At the end of the project August 2020, your contribution would have changed the lives of about 3000 community dwellers of this rural community and surrounding villages who would be coming to the clinic for medical treatment, antenatal care, HIV/AIDS support and much other medical support.
By building a clinic, you can help the local people get the healthcare services they deserve. The overall health of the community members will also improve. With new constructed clinic, diseases such as typhoid and diarrhoea will begin to lose their grip and infant mortality rates will improve.
You can help build a clinic even if you have never picked-up a hammer before. This Go Volunteer Africa’s volunteer vacation program offer developmental volunteers a chance to travel to Uganda and start and construct a clinic with a team of friendly like-minded international volunteers alongside the local community.
This unique opportunity lets you get your hands dirty and actually see what a difference you’ve made before you head back home. But, don’t think it’s all about hard work. The program also give you the chance to travel around the communities you are working in, explore the country, and get to know the people you are helping.
Arrival Time and Date:
Volunteers interested in participating in this program, should arrive in Uganda before the start date of the project. If you think the work camp dates are not favorable for you but you would like to contribute towards the construction of a community clinic, please write to us and we shall arrange a placement for you.
