We are operating in Kyampisi sub-county in Mukono district, about 35Kms from Kampala city, the capital of Uganda. Kyampisi is a typical rural area with about 60,000 people, whose social-economic conditions are very poor. 97% of the residents are subsistence farmers who mainly grow food crops for home consumption. The result of the above is a very poor economic base with more than 90% of the families living under the poverty line. The main source of income for people is farming, whose produce price has drastically fallen. Our priority program is Water, Education, Environment, Social-Economic and Health. We are mobilizing the community to put up a community resource centre, which will be rendering general social services to the community. For this reason, we would prefer to keep costs as low as possible. There is no obligation to fundraise, but if you do manage to raise some money you can put it directly into the project where you are volunteering. Here you can see exactly how your money is being used to help. VOLUNTEERING IN UGANDA FOR FREE: The volunteering is free through Ssamba Foundation, you only pay just $200 to book and confirm your placement. You can stay for up to 4 weeks and no extra fees required. If you want to stay longer than 4 weeks, you only pay for your accommodation and meals. The volunteer placements organized by Ssamba Foundation are with local projects and will be the most rewarding part of your stay. Almost everyone finds the first week of volunteering difficult between the language barrier and culture shock, but those challenges are so worth it when you start to feel at home in your project and begin to figure out what you can offer to help. BOOK YOUR VOLUNTEER PLACEMENT NOW! We arrange volunteer placements in Uganda at a variety of different projects falling under a number of categories. You can chat to past and current volunteers if you wish. Most of these projects are working towards long term sustainability. We have a set number of placements at each project, according to their needs. Please read through the placements listed to get an idea of what we do, but for a more detailed description please contact us via email. The earlier you book, the wider range of projects there will be to choose from. VOLUNTEER PROJECTS IN UGANDA: At Ssamba Foundation, the volunteer program options available are endless – we operate two schools, a women microfinance project, a community health clinic and social community center. Volunteer Work with Children: You can spend time interacting with children and encouraging their social and emotional development. You can focus on music, recreation, art, or other special areas of talent you have. If you are compassionate, creative, and love working with children, this is the program for you. Volunteer Work at Micro-finance Project: You can spend your time working with women at our microfinance project.

Teaching/ education Volunteer Work: Work with our local teachers in your field of expertise to help students learn the skills and information they need to succeed. You will be working in one of our schools, a primary and secondary school. Volunteer Work at a construction/building project: Focus on a building project based on your area of expertise, or work on one of the existing projects that needs an extra set of hands!

Are you inspired by the power of media to ignite the human spirit? Do you believe that media can be used to educate and inspire human beings rather than indulge them? Does the idea of learning about major world issues and the solutions to crucial problems appeal to you? This is a volunteer opportunity to be part of a pioneering project in association with Lighthouse Kidz. We’re currently looking for video makers, video editors, sound editors, animators and researchers to join a growing worldwide volunteer team. You will have the opportunity to create videos and audios specifically about areas you’re passionate about and develop your media skills through mentorship. The project focuses on educating people on the most crucial and vital issues we face today (from suicide, to child neglect, to climate change, child starvation and much more). We have spent nearly 18 years researching these issues and now, as we expand globally, we need to driver these insights through powerful, inspiring video and audio content. Lighthouse Kidz is supported under the umbrella of Lighthouse International. Our mission is to help conscientious people overcome the obstacles that prevent them from living an optimal life. We do this so that we can always say “yes” to a child in need where we need to - both inside our own homes and outside our front doors. This opportunity is for people who want to use their skills to create more meaning and purpose in their lives, by serving others and developing themselves. We actively work on developing our team’s leadership, so we will always encourage and support you to develop and transform personally, not just professionally. This is a great opportunity for career-focused university students, conscientious graduates, experienced industry professionals and aspiring philanthropists. This role would suit you if: You would like to unlock your own potential and help others do the same. You believe that you have a responsibility to create a meaningful life and alleviate as much suffering as you can in the world around you. You value the idea of mentorship and learning from others who can pass on their life lessons to you. You want to improve your skills and talents as an aspiring media professional. You are able to work remotely and are disciplined and organized. The Opportunity To Make a Difference Your involvement will have a direct and indirect impact in making a difference. One such initiative is to prevent as much suicide as possible taking place in the world. Another is our Clean Water Campaign to ensure children receive clean, safe drinking water. Every video, podcast and animation we create is designed specifically to educate and inspire the most conscientious and caring human beings to help them realise their potential. You will be part of a team that is producing multimedia content regularly to inspire our growing community. We will also be hosting talks and seminars with thought leaders in key areas of leadership, which will be filmed online and offline for people to watch and listen to. Location & Time Commitment We want people with a great heart and attitude no matter how much or how little they can contribute. We also understand that people’s availability changes over time. So we will create the role to fit around your existing commitments. We’ve designed the role to work remotely to fit in best around your current commitments. Next Steps An initial telephone call & online application to get to know you and discover what you would most like to do. We'll share more of the background to the project and how it's making a difference to children in need. We’ll agree on your exact role and time commitments that are best suited to your interests and availability for a 1-week trial. We’ll start you on a trial project to get familiar with working as part of the team. As you progress there’ll be opportunities for us to support you not only in your media skills but also in any career you’re pursuing. You can continue to develop personally and professionally during your time with us through personal mentoring. Please have a look at our website at www.legends.report to get a feel for the principles we stand for and our values.
