Project Description

The decision to travel to Africa is life changing but Uganda is a country that will not just change your life, it will capture your heart, spirit and mind.  If you are looking for adventure, raft down the Nile or spend a couple days Gorilla trekking or go in search of the Big Five. Regardless of what you choose to do, you won’t be disappointed!

At the end of the day as the sun prepares floats into West, paddle down the river Nile and take pictures of the buffaloes, hippos and crocodiles as they sun themselves on the side of the river bank.

Uganda offers it all, culture, game, trekking, lakes, rivers and mountains.  It’s not hard to see why this magnificent  country is called The Pearl of Africa.

Community Development

13 million people live in poverty in Uganda living on less than $1.25 a day.  Poverty in the rural areas affects the woman and children and many young girls are forced into prostitution to bring in an income for their families.


Children need to play!  It is important for their learning and helps to develop a healthy brain.  In many communities in East Africa children that are not in school are either working or helping with chores and raising younger siblings.

Saving The Hungry believes that children need to be children!  We need to encourage play.  Sadly, there are very few play facilities due to the high level of poverty, but we are working hard to change this. Help us work alongside locals to build new playgrounds from start to finish.  While volunteering you will live within the local community and get to know the families and children.  We like to encourage our volunteers to also assist with creative play programs to inspire children to explore and grow.  Come and have big-kid fun with us in Uganda.
