I volunteered with Beacon of Hope Uganda for two weeks and it changed me forever. The program was based in Mukono. What a beautiful town and such open hearted loving people. Isaac and his team were absolutely phenomenal. Professional and courteous and with every interaction. From pick up at the airport to return to the airport after two weeks, everything was seamless.

I really enjoyed my time in Uganda with Beacon of Hope. The staff is wonderful and the teaching project at the Kasala school was a great experience. The project is amazing and the kids are so much fun to work with. I really enjoyed doing the arts classes with the kids, they are so creative. Mukono is such an amazing city, especially the night life. Thanks Isaac, Sandra and the entire team of Beacon of Hope Uganda.

I went on a volunteer expedition in Uganda with Beacon of Hope Uganda, Sandy (the Executive Director) processed my application, and she was really helpful from the start of the application process to the end of the program.

It’s a great organization; I'm doing another trip with them next summer with my family. I am also raising funds for their livestock project. It was a great experience volunteering with you. Thank you guys, Sandy, Isaac, Beatrice, Peter and Deborah

I’ve just got back from a project in Uganda- I had an amazing time in the Pearl of Africa. The staff at Beacon of Hope Uganda were extremely helpful and the field team is amazing - can’t believe how quickly it went, the whole experience was remarkable and I’m gutted to be home already.

The volunteer house team and the host family I stayed were friendly and the accommodation was comfortable and clean. The project itself was great. You get really stuck in and experience something so unique.

Working at the youth centre and construction which I thought would be boring was an unexpectedly mind-blowing experience- the culture is so different from what any of us were used to but the people were legendary- really friendly and so appreciative of our work. I highly recommend Beacon of Hope Uganda.

The past four weeks have been so jammed full of new experiences, relationships, exploration, busyness and just general good times that I’ve found it really hard to get the right words for this experience. I volunteered with Beacon of Hope Uganda and I think, not only from my experience but from word of mouth that it’s the best local NGO in Uganda.

Beacon of Hope Uganda was started up by Isaac Ssamba in 2006 when he was just 19!! Isaac and his team have built, Beacon of Hope Uganda into a truly welcoming and rewarding volunteer program with a number of grassroots development projects (schools, health clinic and women projects).

Speaking to Isaac about his work and passions was one of my favorite things, the way he spoke so enthusiastically and passionately was very inspiring. Thanks Beacon of Hope Uganda for this wondering experience and making me fall in love with Uganda, your home.
