Volunteer in Uganda at an orphanage school

Mercy Hearts Uganda is a charitable organization in Uganda founded on a basis of providing high-quality education to children from extremely poor families, orphans and children neglected of there right to education.

General info

We have a kindergarten and 2  elementary schools with 800 kids in all our schools.

We support both orphans and children in need. We try to make the world a better place for them.

There is so much we have to learn, and we can learn from you, so come here with all of your skills but especially with all of your good intentions and heart!

Volunteering programs

volunteering in Uganda

We have volunteering programs that are basically free.

It is out of the will of volunteers to contribute to our school projects participating at activities such as:
  • construction,
  • teaching,
  • buying and managing food for our children,
  • fundraising,
  • helping at planning,
  • donating, 
  • organizing pieces of land to have more school garden and medication for our children.
We won’t ask you money but as you will see, we live in economic precarity and sometimes it is difficult for us to provide basic care for our orphans and students.
Most orphans sleep together in old and rustic rooms as you can see in these pictures:

These kids are very happy: always smiling, even if they cannot afford “a normal” life with normal houses, normal books and classrooms and in spite of the fact that some of them don’t have families.

We are working for them to achieve a better future with all the comforts and warmth that they deserve.


Our organization is no-profit and all fundings go to the wellness of the kids. We can provide accommodation, which is in the school guardhouse. It was given to us by its owner at the use of the volunteers and the staff.

    1. Uganda is a multilingual country. Forty of its living indigenous languages fall into three main families—Bantu, Nilotic and Central Sudanic—with another two languages in the Kuliak family.

      English, inherited from the colonial period, and Swahili are official languages spoken locally.
