We are interested in helping our volunteers learn more about Uganda and the culture here so the accommodation provided is of a host family. Volunteers live with a host family and in terms of cost, it is cheaper. The beauty of the volunteer having the accommodation with a family is that you get to learn more about the culture in Uganda, make friends, learn about the local behaviours and history, and always in a company of someone. The host family selected always meets standards of our organization and is always ready to host you. The accommodation consists of one bed room and a bathroom.
Since our volunteers are hosted with the family, they share a meal and drinks with the host family. In the host family, more of the Ugandan dishes are prepared. The food includes Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The meals include banana which is Uganda’s staple food but here it is called Matooke, Beef, Beans, Posho, Greens, Potatoes, Chicken, Rice and Cassava. Breakfast consists of Milk, Bread, Egg, Fruit, Coffee, Rolex and Chapatti. Most of these are local dishes; however special meals can always be arranged on request.
If you are a vegetarian, we value you taste. Special meals can be arranged to fit your preference and taste.
