Getting involved

PFHU offers opportunities for volunteers on a short or long-term basis with accommodation provided at Hope House. A comfortable building on the edge of Kititi village and a short walk from our school. There are 3 twin bedrooms and 2 larger bedrooms for 4/6 people, cold showers and flushing toilets and a large sitting/dining room. On the same site there is a community hall, regularly used by the women in the cooperative, an extra shower and latrines, land which is farmed by the cooperative and an expanding farm with hens, pigs and goats, as well as Happy and Joey our two dogs. The compound is large, and the children love to visit hoping for a game of football or just a chat and maybe a biscuit!

Volunteering may involve daily farming activities in partnership with the Women’s Cooperative or working with our commercial crops, assisting Dr Baker or nurse Betty with clinics or regular deworming programmes, making up food parcels for our elderly and helping to distribute them, helping with maintenance, building, painting the school and supporting educational curriculum-based activities at Cornerstone Nursery & Primary School. In addition, helping with making school uniforms and much more! ¬†Volunteers are highly valued at PfHU and they provide invaluable service to the Kititi Community.

Volunteers are assessed through a rigorous process of interviews, references, and safeguarding checks.

The cost of Volunteering at PfHU is £30 per day, and this includes transport from airport, accommodation, three meals a day and access to additional snacks and clean drinking water. This also includes laundry and cleaning of your room.

Volunteers arrange and pay for their own flights, vaccinations, and insurance. Any additional trips can be arranged through the Ugandan Director.

In the UK, we also welcome volunteers, who may wish to get involved in sponsorship, fundraising events, grant applications and promoting the charity.

Please contact us for further information.
