Welcome to Uganda Rural Fund Volunteer Website
As you prepare for your volunteer experience, please reflect on this Chinese poem:
"Go to the people Live among the people Learn from them. Start with what they know Build on what they have. But of the best leaders, When their task is accomplished Their work is done, The people will say... We have done it ourselves."
URF is registered charity in Uganda, USA, and Canada that strives to create educational and sustainable development opportunities for orphans, impoverished youth, and women in Uganda's rural communities.
