Volunteer Projects


Office and Administration

Volunteers can help the Kitega Centre with general office management duties, which include: writing monthly newsletters, responding to emails, secretarial services, and general IT support (ie: designing or developing software to improve record management, report writing, and fundraising).

Education Initiatives

Education is the key to success and we believe in empowering our community through education.

Volunteering in nearby schools

We partner with many rural schools in the area in order to help them provide quality education. Volunteers can work in the schools, helping to teach subjects such as English, Math and Science. Volunteers can also assist in our adult education programs, teaching basic reading and writing skills.

Teaching children with learning difficulties

Volunteers can help children with learning difficulties develop their education and can also assist with arts and crafts activities.Volunteers can also help with literacy and Numeracy through games and practical activity, which makes learning interesting for these special children.

Teaching Music and Dance

Volunteers can also get involved by teaching the children about music and dance. If you love music and dance, this is the opportunity to share your gift with the children and community at Kitega.  Volunteers can even teach the children to play instruments, such as piano and guitars.

Home Visits

Volunteers and staff visit families in need and get to know them better. This helps the Centre understand the needs of the community, and it also creates a ray of hope for the families. Home visiting also involves distributing basic items to the families, in addition to befriending them.

Home-Based Care

Home-based care includes cleaning the home and its surroundings and putting things in order to ensure an enjoyable living standard. During this activity, children with learning difficulties are monitored to assess their independence on performing certain tasks such as washing, eating, etc.Disabled children on the Home-based program (ie: children that cannot come to the Centre due to the level of disability or age) are reached and supported through Home-based care. Volunteers can spend time with these children, and/or provide services they need, such as physiotherapy, etc.

Building Constructions

Volunteers can engage in construction projects, which can often include constructing a classroom block, houses for individuals in the community, latrines for homesteads to help improve health conditions, or a health facility.NB: The construction projects are ideal for teams/groups and it is vital to gather the necessary donations and construction materials prior to volunteering.

Evangelistic Ministry

The Centre is a Christian organization and as such, emphasizes spreading the gospel of Christ through Word and Action. With the recent strategy of empowering communities to drive their own development initiatives starting with the local church, volunteers can engage in church-awakening activities such as leading bible studies.


Water projects

Water remains a problem in the community, and water projects are ideal for the communities we serve. Volunteers can help with the establishment of accessible and safe water. In the area where we operate, the water table is not very far, and there are a number of water wells that need to be improved in order to provide safe water.

This project is also ideal for teams/groups that can help to raise the necessary donations for the project. In addition, it is vital for the teams to have water engineers and others who possess the necessary technical knowledge.

HIV/AIDS Awareness

HIV/AIDS remains a problem in Uganda, and the majority of individuals in the community remain ignorant about the illness. Volunteers can help lead a campaign against this deadly disease, which can be done through community outreach and sensitization.

Adult Literacy

Volunteers in the Functional Adult Literacy program work to equip community members with basic skills to support daily activity and livelihoods. These include Literacy and numeracy, sharing strategic information, and knowledge, etc.

Agricultural Projects

Agriculture is the main economic activity in Uganda, however, some families lack the knowledge and resources needed to support themselves effectively. Improving their agricultural skills and knowledge will greatly reduce poverty in the community.

Volunteers with a background in agriculture and animal husbandry can initiate projects to raise animals, such as chicken and pigs, as well as to teach better farming practices.

Women Projects

Women are very vital in helping to fight poverty at the grass roots level. The mothers in the village want to ensure the best for their children and household. Volunteers can engage in women empowerment activities such as organizing seminars and activities that can help build their self-esteem.

Business and Entrepreneurial training

Through the VICOBA initiative, Kitega Community Centre equips community members with business and entrepreneurial skills. Volunteers interested in developing rural entrepreneurs can get involved and work alongside community Banking groups to help them achieve their dreams.

Medical Projects

Volunteers can also help to provide medical services to the community, something that is ideal for volunteers who work as doctors and/or nurses. Volunteers can help out at local clinics and hospitals.

Kitega Community Centre also welcomes doctors who have mobile medical equipment and who can work in the village directly.

Vocational Training

The Kitega Centre also welcomes volunteers who can teach a vocational skill such as Handcraft, carpentry, welding, Electronic and phone repair, photography, clay work, Computer Literacy, tailoring, and more.

These are special skills that can benefit the community and above all, benefit the disabled children.

Prison Ministry

If you are passionate about working with prisons, Kitega Community Centre’s Philemon Ministry gives inmates special training that can be helpful after they finish their sentences, and encourages them to live dignified lives.
