While staying with us, you are free to choose in which area you will help and also the hours you will dedicate to it.  The school schedule runs from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a breakfast break from 10-11 a.m., and a lunch break from 1-2 p.m. .

As a volunteer, you can expect to work from Monday to Friday up to 6 hours per day, since you are free to choose your starting time. But also consider that you can get different experiences by arriving at different seasons of the year, so do not hesitate to contact us to decide in which season you want to visit us!

On your free time, you can discover your surroundings by walking to the central area of Mbale, where you will see the hectic life of an African city, or making an excursion in the natural pathways arounds the area. And if you wish to do some tourism on the weekends, we can take you for a trekking to our beautiful mount Wanale or the very well-known Sipi Falls!

Many past volunteers have also made longer backpacking trips, since Uganda is worth visiting and also very cheap. So if you wish to do so, you can always ask us for our advice and we will share with you all our knowledge about the country, to make sure your visit to Uganda becomes an unforgettable experience!
