The purpose of our Uganda construction volunteer projects is not only to help build infrastructure but to also build lives. From renovating a rundown school or classroom to helping improve clean water access with safe and hygienic harvest tanks, springs, the work of our teams and our partners really does make a difference to people’s lives in Uganda.

The Uganda Construction Volunteer Projects is great for everyone aged 18 to 55+! You don’t need any previous building experience, though you should be physically fit and willing to work hard in order to partake on these volunteering projects in Uganda.

Volunteers work with locals to make sure these projects get completed and match the needs of the people they’re benefiting.

At the Uganda construction volunteer work project, you can help build even if you have never picked-up a hammer before. This volunteering opportunity in Uganda 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 volunteer Safaris in Uganda 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.


As with many of our construction and building volunteer projects in Africa, the aim of our construction volunteer work program in Uganda is to tackle local development issues through infrastructure development. The development of a formal education and healthcare structure and the building of schools and health centres is seen as key to achieving this goal and improving the lives of people here.

The Ugandan people are hard working and appreciative of our contribution to their community and are incredibly responsive to our presence on the project. Although the work may occasionally be arduous, it is rewarding and fulfilling, giving us an unforgettable experience and the opportunity to make a real difference!

Although certain projects often present unique needs and challenges, there are several core areas (and corresponding activities) you will likely find yourself contributing to at some point during your service as a Go Volunteer Africa Construction Volunteer in Uganda: Site Preparation (demolition, digging foundations, clearing rubble, etc.), Building (Mixing and pouring concrete, bricklaying, carpentry, plumbing, etc.), or Community Beautification (planting trees, landscaping, community cleanups, painting murals, etc.).  Whatever your interest, rest assured you’ll get your hands dirty from the start!

You don’t need to pay to volunteer in Uganda, volunteering in Uganda is FREE and NO program FEES are required. You will be working from Monday to Friday in a small team of like-minded individuals. The day-to-day work program will vary according to the time of your visit and the stage of the improvement work. Whatever your contribution, you are sure to find this project incredibly rewarding when you see the progress the project has made.
