RHCF is always welcoming and excited to host volunteers at our Mubende office. We have hosted volunteers of all ages from around the world, from individuals wanting to make a difference to groups from established organizations. A wide variety of opportunities are available for volunteers, depending on background, interest, and experience. Some possible volunteer activites include:
Providing various counseling services to community members;
Helping with the medical needs of the orphaned children, people infected with HIV/AIDS, etc.;
Assisting with fundraising, including the identification of potential donors or sponsors;
Teaching as a co-teacher in primary schools;
Becoming a friend to an orphaned child, which includes visiting the child in the home or at school, taking the child out on the weekends, as well as many other activities;
Aiding in administration work in our offices;
Training farmers in sustainable agricultural practices;
Preparing quarterly volunteer newsletters; and
Participating in construction work.
No special experience is needed - just enthusiasm and a love for community! Skills that could be valuable include teaching, counseling, nursing, construction, agricultural management, and many others.

There is no specific amount required from a volunteer but rather depends on each individual’s capacity to raise funds to support our administration expenses and also contribute to various projects during your stay.
Please arrange with the Projects Resource Director for this money to be remitted to RHCF bank account before traveling to Uganda or bring it with you.
