Ways to Get Involved
International Volunteerism Program
Designed to bring you into the village and allow you to put your talents, skills and knowledge to use in the most effective way possible. Volunteering abroad is the most meaningful and inspiring way to travel. To spend a few weeks or even months of your life volunteering your time towards improving the lives of a Ugandan family or child brings great rewards. As a young organization, we are flexible and work to tailor your experience to be the best possible. You have the option of engaging into one or more of our current and future projects or designing your own project.
Adventure on the beautiful hills of Kigezi, Islands and waters of Lake Bunyonyi in South Western Uganda will give you the most relaxing feel of mind and soul to think further and reignite your vision. Within the LUSU catchment, swimming in Lake Bunyonyi while staying at one of our community resource centers at The Paradise Eco-Hub, Climbing the beautiful hills of Kigezi, among other many activities, will keep your heart racing with excitement and pleasure as you volunteer with us here at LUSU.
