How to volunteer
Are you a little confused?
Not quite sure what to read first or what needs filling in?
Well don’t worry it’s quite simple really:
STEP 1. Make sure you’re 18 years old or over, that is our minimum age restriction. Sorry if you’re not old enough yet, but perhaps come and visit us in the future. If you can’t remember what being 18 feels like, don’t worry, there’s no upper age limit.
STEP 2. Choose where you would like to volunteer. Currently we have residential projects in Kabale and Kitanga with occasional short term projects at Bukinda and Bufuka. You can follow the links to these pages to find out more about our locations and you can also find some more information under our projects pages about what we do at each site.
STEP 3. Read through our documents containing all you will need to know about volunteering with Edirisa UK. These can be found in the panel to the right.
STEP 4. Apply using our volunteer application form and ensure that you fill in all the fields.
We accept people for 1, 2, 3 or 6 months or more, so please select which package applies to you and click the relevant box. (Additional weeks can be added to these packages on request).
Next you will be asked to select your location, please make sure one of the circles is checked.
STEP 5. It’s easy to send our online form to us, just press the submit button at the bottom of the form and it will be sent directly to us. You will then be contacted to confirm your application.
STEP 6. When your trip has been booked you will be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit of €58/£50 up front, which will be deducted from the balance of your trip.
STEP 7. Pay the balance of your package cost 1 month before your departure date and make sure you have sufficient travel and medical insurance.
STEP 8. Get on that plane!
