WRITING: Writing is our passion. We write to educate, inform and entertain which in many countries are the building blocks of emerging democracies. We know that quality of life and quality of information go hand in hand. When an author loves their publications, flavor potential is optimized. If their writing provides enough money for food, clothing and shelter, access to education and health care, the writer will love their publications. And quality of life will translate into great information flavor.

Note to our International Readers: Uganda is the Pearl of Africa. Uganda is also the part of the continent Africa with shocking contrasts; On one side you have millions of people living below the poverty line, working and waiting eagerly to get out of the misery, and on the other you’ll find striking landscapes, nature destinations and historical sites with a culture that goes back more than 5000 years.

Visiting Uganda, you have infinite opportunities for social work and personal exploration in in the country. Uganda is an exclusive safari destination from other African countries because of its large forested area with Afro-montane forest, Lowland rain forest and their openness gives you a stunning sight of the forest creatures like gorillas, chimpanzees, monkeys, butterflies and birds.

If you go through the Country’s National parks and game reserves, you are likely to encounter safari favorites like Lions, Gorillas, leopard, buffalo, elephant, giraffe and other several varieties of animals not found anywhere in Africa. Uganda is naturally gifted with water bodies such as lakes, rivers and several crater lakes. The existence of such water bodies facilitates a moderately wet climate, with the countryside greener and fertile compared to the semi-desert areas of Africa. Around these water bodies are diverse bird species not easily found anywhere in Africa especially the rare shoebill and the papyrus gonolek.

Uganda is your home for travel/adventure and voluntary social services. We have received thousands of volunteers who have done an amazing work in the Country’s communities; the country has also received millions of adventure guests, and i believe all have gone back with their needs satisfied.

Volunteering in Uganda is a fantastic opportunity for students, high school graduates as well as professionals to reach for a world beyond their horizon. You will experience Uganda first hand and share the experiences life has taught you, while immersing into one of the world’s oldest and richest cultures. It is an adventure, a challenge, an investment in your future.

We will be excited to hear from you, send us an email at programs@uvrcug.org, volunteers@uvrcug.
