Your helping hand is crucial
The role of volunteers in enhancing our work, contributing to our vision and missions cannot be underestimated. OCIA welcomes volunteers all year round for periods ranging from two minimum to four months maximum. Come learn, share and be a part of transforming the rural youth livelihoods.
Share your skills to help empower Ugandan children in need to transform their lives through education.
Volunteers are the backbone of OCIA. Without them, much of the work we do would not be possible. Each year, our family and friends, our corporate partners and sponsors generously give their time, skills and energy to support our work with the disadvantaged Ugandan children and their families.
Our volunteer mentors support young people who are making the challenging transition from school to work or further studies. Our volunteer tutors help students to improve their literacy by providing basic English language skills to help vulnerable children in our communities. We are also assisted by a nationwide team of administration and project support volunteers who work behind the scenes to help with the day-to-day operations of OCIA. You can help disadvantaged Ugandan children get the most out of their education and create a better future for themselves. Join our community of volunteers and help us to provide the support these children need.
