Volunteer OpportunitiesIf you’re looking for a volunteer opportunity that will allow you to leave more than just footprints on your travels, Soft Power Education offer a unique volunteer experience that will let you get stuck in at grass roots level, even for just a day.
Soft Power Education (SPE) is a British registered charity and Ugandan NGO working with communities in Uganda to improve quality of life through education.
Focus is made on five key areas:
- Refurbishment of primary schools – providing clean, safe and inspiring learning environments.
- Education Centres – fun, dynamic learning centres to compilment class based learning for our partner schools
- Community Development Programme – extending the potential of the education centres for adult learning
- Partnerships – Through partnerships bringing conservation to the classroom
- Special Needs – Promoting inclusion of children with disabilities into main stream schools.
Your time could be spent doing anything from painting to mixing cement for the builders. A delicious local lunch is provided by the recipient school. Soft Power does request that you make a donation on the day to help them fund the transport, paint and brushes you will be using.
If you would like to volunteer for a day or two, enquire at either NRE Adventure Central or Explorers River Camp.
