Wonderful news - Sam is back!
After a lot of searching and enquiries the team in Kabale have found Sam - he had been taken by somebody to a distant village to be a goat herd. He is now safely back in Kabale with his grandmother.

Our thanks for all the prayers and support we have received.

Please pray for Sam, a six year old sponsored child who has been missing in Kabale for two days. Last seen on his own in a market.

The team on the ground are doing all they can to care for the children and their families (where they have one) but all of the children we have been supporting and caring for are so vulnerable now that their boarding schools are closed. This was their safe haven.

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.
