We can't believe that our beautiful Bryony is in the last week of her 3 months' volunteering! Our Drop-in Centre children are going to miss her so much. The centre looks beautifully bright & welcoming after all the interior painting, and a beautiful gate to top it off! Well done and thank you Bryony! xxx

We're halfway through the mid-year school holidays and some sponsored children who don't have homes to go to have been accommodated by our kind neighbour. Apart from playing football and doing daily lessons they have extended our vegetable gardens to cut down the food bills. Well done!

Volunteer Opportunities

– Give the gift of your time and skills.
There are many ways to provide opportunities to those that we walk alongside in Africa, one of the most valuable is to physically walk alongside those who have so little, offering the gift of your time and skills.

Alongside Africa has two volunteer programs; Volunteering in Uganda or UK.
