Company/Organization: Beacon of Hope Uganda


Beacon of Hope Uganda is currently looking for volunteers teachers who can take up projects depending on the needs of our schools and children centers.

Through Beacon of Hope Uganda’s Teaching Volunteer Program in rural village in Uganda, you can get involved with a complete range of teaching and development activities. You can help in taking normal classes, assisting the teaching staff, conducting extracurricular activities like clay modeling, painting, drawing, singing, art & drama, dancing, group work, games or other similar activities. Your help and assistance will be greatly appreciated in this rural school or children centre and will be a refreshing change to existing curriculum. The school and children’s home were started by Beacon of Hope Uganda. The two projects are located in rural communities and have limited resources, both infrastructure and staff.


Beacon of Hope Uganda provides ethical, low-cost volunteering abroad programs in Uganda. Almost all schools and children’s homes we run and those we support have need for infrastructure development and/or renovations. Volunteers can do a combination of both teaching and renovation/building work at the project they choose to work at. If you’re a native English speaker or with some teaching experience, you can be a valuable resource in these village classrooms. With your English skills you could teach proper English pronunciation and usage. Even if you’ve never formally taught a classroom subject, you can assist the local teachers in their day to day work at the school. You don’t need to know the local language, or the methods of the local school system. All you need is enthusiasm and a desire to share your knowledge and make a difference.

Unfortunately if you would like to work with the Teaching placement, teaching computers, but unfortunately the school does not have computers, but sometimes volunteers help by using their own laptops to help the students in groups of 3-5 students per group.

Additional Info:

Beacon of Hope Uganda also runs orphanage/children’s home in Uganda. With limited staff, resources and facilities, we are struggling to provide care, love and support to orphaned children. Being hugely understaffed, we have few learning or extra-curricular activities. Beacon of Hope Uganda through its domestic and international volunteers is able to provide the homes with support and help. These could be in the form of improving the existing facilities, assisting the staff, teaching and helping with the general running and administration of the orphanage/children’s home. Volunteers usually help in refurbishing existing buildings, improving facilities, teaching Basic English, drawing, drama, conducting games etc.

At this orphanage and children’s home you are typically greeted with big hugs, toothless smiles and children curious to touch and get your attention. These children are here due to poverty, disabilities, and homelessness and also as the only way to attend school. Through Beacon of Hope Uganda caring for orphans and children’s home programs you can make a lasting difference in these young lives. You can care for children in many ways. Often no special skills are required, as volunteers are needed to spend time playing, reading, exercising and share time with the children. Since the host project is short-staffed and the volunteers’ attention gives the children the extra love they need.

Childcare Programs
The need is expansive and long-term, so your opportunity to make a significant difference through service is likewise immeasurable. You can help expand and maintain residential training and daycare facilities or help host staff conduct recreational activities, teach classes and serve meals. If you have first-hand experience working with children with disabilities, professionally or personally, your expertise can be especially useful in this project. You can also provide direct services to deaf or mentally challenged children. No matter what your age, background, gender or ability, you can be a valuable resource to demonstrate the universal language of love, compassion and make a difference to the children’s’ lives!

Beacon of Hope Uganda

Beacon of Hope Uganda designs and conducts programs which contribute to the welfare and social productivity of disadvantaged individuals and communities with an emphasis on children and youth. BoHU addresses some of the most pervasive problems in rural Uganda, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, hunger, education, poverty, access to clean drinking water, and orphaned children. In addition, it focusses on empowering the youth of Uganda empowering them with different skills and leadership training.

BoHU is founded on the principles that our shared values and commonalities as human beings are more important than our individual differences. We therefore operate on a non-political, non-denominational, and non-sectarian basis, welcoming all world citizens to contribute to our work and every Ugandan in need.

BoHU reaches out to the furthest and most abandoned communities in the rural areas of Uganda including its islands. Amongst these are the Bevuma islands which are hard to reach and under – served by the government and Ugandan NGO’s. Through educating Ugandans on diseases awareness & prevention, and fostering the creation of self sustaining projects run by the local community, BoHU aims to achieve its mission.

A number of short term and long term goals have been established so far and now we are in position to attract volunteers for short-term (7 days to 2 months) and long-term volunteers (3 months to 6 months).

Mission: Helping people to help themselves out of poverty and create (financial) independence amongst our beneficiaries through effective community education and the development of projects, creating a self-supporting, self-sustaining community in a rapidly changing world.

Vision: Providing resources to achieve sustainable development in under-resourced areas and for BoHU to become a self-sustaining non-government organization in its efforts in Uganda.
