Elgon Youth Development Centre
managed by FREDRICK K.
Elgon Youth Development Centre, is a Mbale Youth based organization located in Mbale District, Eastern Uganda, the project started in 2009 as a result of the appalling poverty situation in the community among disadvantaged youths that had led to a rise in crime rates, street children, early pregnancies and early marriages leave alone dropping out of school by many children. Lack of employment, death or separation of parents, lack of school fees and other scholastic materials, drug and forms of child abuse have been responsible for the increased number of unemployed and street children.
Who Can Volunteer?
Our volunteer program is open to anyone with a sense of compassion, a desire to spend time around children, and a modicum of humor. We welcome individuals and couples of all ages, plus families with teenaged children. Participants should be healthy for travel, and tolerant of less than stellar living conditions and amenities. We prefer that you have a skill or a focus but no experience is necessary. Volunteer opportunities can be organized for community, school, or corporate groups.
Help Orphans and Underprivileged Children:
Volunteers give assistance, care and comfort to orphans and vulnerable children living in an orphanage. Volunteers provide the children with the adult attention they crave and deserve; teaching them languages, computer skills, games, music, etc.
This social enterprise project collects plastic trash from the streets and transforms them into stylish and fashionable bags. It welcomes volunteers with a background in IT, design, env. education, photography, business or social sciences.
Music and Arts:
Do you have musical talent that you would like to share with our children? We are looking for volunteers to help teach music to underprivileged children. You can bring comfort and joy to our children through music and help them improve on their talent.
Are you interested in volunteering your nursing skills to those in need, then join us and help our children live a healthy life. We need volunteers to help in our clinic and treating the needy children and mothers from diseases like malaria, chickenpox etc and also help in teaching ways on how to live healthy and prevention.
