Become a Volunteer
APARC is a busy and vibrant place to work and there’s always room for volunteers to join us and help out. Just bring your time and energy to make a difference and experience life in Uganda.
Volunteer opportunities at APARC are extremely varied and involvement can range from a few days to a few months or longer or anything in between. All that we ask is that volunteers have an interest and desire in supporting the Disadvantaged Refugees and their families that are at the heart of our work. You will not only gain experience working with a small NGO but also have an exciting time experiencing life in Kampala and seeing the highlights of Uganda – the ‘Pearl of Africa’.
Our goal is to create a well-rounded experience of what it’s like to work for a small organisation on the frontlines of development work. Each person has a different skill set and because of our small size we try and utilise every volunteer who walks through the door to their full potential.
