Volunteer

We are building volunteer housing in Phase 1 of our building to accommodate the amazing people who have expressed interest in coming to volunteer in Uganda. We will create a volunteer engagement opportunity for each family or school that would like to come visit to make sure you have the best experience possible.  To volunteer in Uganda please reach out to Rachel at rachel.m@kimeraorphange.org or Eddie at Edward.s@kimeraorphanage.org.

Cost: The children come first therefore there is a cost to volunteer. The cost covers added staff, transportation, and necessary arrangements to make sure our volunteers are not taking away from the resources dedicated to our children.

Things to consider:

  • Travel takes time and adjusting to the time might take a couple days, we recommend at least 2-3 weeks per visit.

  • We want your talent! Please be prepared to teach a class, help with sports, cooking, or maintenance at Kimera!

  • This is not a five-star resort but we will do our best to make you comfortable.

  • We recommend insurance including travel and medical when going abroad anywhere.

  • You should spend some time in Africa while you are visiting. There are many ways to incorporate sightseeing in your visit and we would be happy to help with making arrangements where possible keeping in mind our staff are dedicated to serving our children.

We can only accommodate a small number of volunteers at one time so will need to coordinate your trip with the larger calendar. We do want everyone who is interested to be able to come and be a part of the experience. We look forward to your visit!
