SAF is a 501(C)3 under Internal revenue Service (IRS) in the USA and Non-Government Organization in Uganda established for purposes of improving the lives of vulnerable children, adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) and promoting community development in Ugandan poor and hard to reach communities.

Uganda is so vast that the climate of the country is so varied. However, it has a tropical climate and one could classify the seasons as Hot, Wet & Cold.
Temperatures usually range from 20 degrees centigrade to 30 degrees centigrade depending on the part of the country you are in. The hottest months are from December to February and July. The rainy seasons in the south are from March to May and October to November. In the north, the wet season is normally from April to October. However, it is also possible that the climate is not as expected due to the changing weather patterns due to the present global climate change.
Cultural shock in Uganda ❗
Volunteers may experience a cultural shock on arrival in Uganda. Most things and way of life in the country is different from that in the West. However, you will get used to a new way of life. After the projects and going back to their home countries volunteers may experience a reverse cultural shock. Managing cultural shock requires a lot of patience for one to give him/her self ample time to understand analyse and appreciate the differences. Never rush to make decisions or judgments. The process normally goes through stages.
How to get to your site
Volunteers buy a visa for Uganda and book flights from their country of origin to Uganda. Every volunteer lands at Entebbe International Airport, the Only Airport in Uganda. Before leaving your country, a volunteer must inform Saint Ann Foundation team about your coming to Uganda so that we prepare in advance and also confirm your flight details so that you can be picked from the airport on arrival in time.
Is there internet access?
Uganda is currently open to tourists and guests from around the world. Therefore we welcome volunteers from around the world making sure, we follow the COVID-19 guidance. Ifyou look at the link below, you’ll realize Uganda is a very low-risk country.
