For Students

Ssamba Foundation organizes meaningful international travel programs for students or young professionals in Uganda.  Ssamba Foundation offers affordable, safe and responsible volunteer travel opportunities for students in Mukono district, Uganda and across the country.

Every year Ssamba Foundation welcomes over 200 students who join our programs from around the world. Volunteer travel opportunities for students are popular among young people looking to make an impactful difference in community development and conservation efforts while seeing new countries and experiencing different cultures.

Ssamba Foundation offers a variety of student volunteering opportunities as a way to boost personal and professional skills. Our volunteer programs in Uganda cater to student volunteers with a variety of interests, so whether you are in search of adventure and looking to travel, or to improve your employability by showcasing your international experience, we have the perfect program for you.

International experience shows potential employers that you are able to get out of your comfort zone and handle situations that you wouldn’t necessarily encounter in your home country. This, in turn, shows personal growth and maturity, making you a better candidate for employment.

Volunteering in Uganda with Ssamba Foundation will allow you to improve your job prospects and develop yourself through new experiences, and by learning “soft skills” that will be helpful in the working world. These are attributes such as social skills, communication, teamwork, responsibility and work ethics, that will allow you to better interact and work in a professional setting.

Students can choose to volunteer for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks in a variety of projects including Teaching, Childcare, Community Development, Construction, Sports and Music and Environment Conservation.

Whether you are looking to travel between semesters, during school breaks, before starting university or entering the workforce, Ssamba Foundation ensures students are offered the most meaningful volunteer travel opportunities and superior support services.

With Ssamba Foundation, you’ll do hands-on work that adds real value to your studies. Our internships and volunteer opportunities for college students are built around experiential learning.

No longer reserved for college students or graduates, high school students now too can participate in programs across Uganda, volunteering in a variety of aspects. These programs are designed to provide a structured, safe and exciting adventure for teenagers. What better way to learn about yourself and the world while giving back!

No matter what program you choose, you can be assured that you’ll have full support from our staff every step of the way. Your safety is our priority. We’re also extremely flexible, and you can choose your own travel dates at any time of the year, including during a semester.
