Uganda has a flexible visa system and more to that the costs of living are very affordable in our local community that provide our volunteers with fresh food and water. We have affordable accommodation all around plus good security.

For our school related activities we do not work in May, August and December- January. The rest of the month are fine for education and other school related volunteers.
