Volunteer days are Monday-Friday from 9:00 until 16:00 (Saturday is either a work day or a day off, depending on the volunteer's own choice).
Most of our volunteers are Israeli, but we also have a German volunteer at all times. Volunteers from all nations are very much welcome. We take up to 3 volunteers at once. Volunteers arrive in Uganda independently.
Regarding costs: we don't charge anything to volunteer. Volunteers pay for all their personal expenses (except for breakfast and lunch, which our volunteers are welcome to eat at the kindergarten for free with the staff and children). Living in Kampala is very cheap- A local meal costs about 1$ and casual transportation costs even less.
Volunteers usually rent an apartment (where they stay together) or they stay at a guesthouse. Accommodation arrangements are made individually for each volunteer prior to their arrival in Uganda, and solely depend on the volunteers' choice.

Besides education for children 5 days a week, the children receive daily breakfast and lunch twice a week.
In addition, the project provides free medical services for children and their families, women's empowerment group and scholarship program for the nursery school's graduates.
