Have been you been searching for that special opportunity to get involved in helping some of the world's most disadvantaged children, at a ‘hands on’ level? Chances for Children welcomes volunteers from all professional and personal backgrounds: construction, teaching, nursing,engineering, horticulture, the list is endless..! Or maybe you can offer other skills you have learned along the way?

It’s a truly rewarding experience to be working as part of a tight-knit team, where you can really see how you are making a difference in the community. The smiles on the children's faces alone make it all worthwhile!

Whatever you have to offer, we welcome you to come to Uganda and volunteer at the orphanage.

Our team will collect you from the airport and ensure that you are looked after for the duration ofyour stay. Various accommodation options are available, depending on the level of comfort required. This can vary from local basic accommodation with outside toilets to a 5 star western standard hotel, you can choose!

any help

We welcome you to come give up some of your time to go out to Uganda, whether it be for a week or several months.


It’s a very rewarding experience to be working as a part of a very small team where you can see every bit of difference you make.

team work

This could be on many levels, ie construction, teaching, nursing, engineering, garden work, the list is endless…


You may live thousands of miles from Uganda, but have a skillset you would like to share with us.

We are always looking for new supporters, to raise funds and awareness and spread the word, so maybe you would like to organise an event locally, be it a fun run, a party, a cake sale, a sponsored bike ride, there are so many options!

You may have PR experience/contacts and want to inform them about our cause. Maybe you are an accounting wizz and want to offer some time to help us with book keeping!

Whether you have a week, a month, or several months to spare, we would love to hear from you, so please get in touch!

Meet Amber everyone! She's 21 and she's the first foreign volunteer that we have welcomed into our new Chances for Children volunteers quarters in Lunguja! We have a lovely triple wooden bunk bed. She's from Arizona, USA and she will be with us for 2 weeks helping with the kids and decorating the compound! The children haven't seen a white face for a while and started calling her Auntie Gabs which we thought was quite funny.
