Welcome Message

Welcome and thank you for considering Uganda and URF as your next destination for adventure and giving back to the global community. We value the sacrifice of your time and resources to come share your skills and experiences with the people of Uganda, especially thos in rural communities where we serve.

As a volunteer you will have a unique opportunity to join forces with a very diverse and dedicated team of local and international volunteers together with local residents, in an effort to better the living conditions of our people. Our local team is ready to support you on this mission and help make the best use of your time, skills, and energy. We hope this will be a memorable experience for you and that you will learn something about our culture, our traditions, and our country that will enrich your experience and share when you return home.

An old 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."


**I hope you take this poem to heart before setting your feet in Africa
