Diet – nutrition information

Volunteers are provided with three meals per day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), prepared by an on-site local cook. If you wish to snack or eat outside of mealtimes, this will be at your own cost and there are local shops within the villages where you can purchase snacks. Breakfast generally includes tea, eggs, bread and fruit. For lunch and dinner, there is a revolving menu of local dishes, which include typical Ugandan stews (beef, chicken, pork, goat, fish and vegetable), beans, rice, chapatti, groundnuts and vegetables. Starchy foods such as white bread, white rice, pasta, potatoes, sweet potatoes, matoke (boiled green bananas), and cassava are dietary staples. The tropical climate of Uganda also contributes to a healthy choice of seasonal fruits, including bananas, watermelon, papayas, mangos, jackfruit, and pineapples. Bottled drinking water is readily available in Uganda and volunteers should budget approximately $5 per week for this.

If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know well in advance of your program so our local team can make arrangements for you. We do, however, need to stress the point that you should not expect to eat as you normally do at home. We will do our best to see that you are well taken care of, but also as a volunteer, there is a need to be flexible.

  1. To whom it may concern,

    I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to express my deep interest in volunteering and to inquire about the current volunteer programs being offered by your esteemed organization. After extensive research and consideration, I have decided that I would like to dedicate my time and skills to making a positive impact on the lives of children, particularly in Uganda or any other part of the world where help is needed.

    As an individual with a genuine passion for helping children, I firmly believe in the power of education, support, and care in shaping their futures. Through volunteering, I aim to contribute to their well-being and offer them opportunities to thrive in a nurturing environment.

    Given my commitment and availability, I would like to explore the possibility of joining a volunteer program for a duration of approximately one month. This time frame allows me to immerse myself in the local community, establish meaningful connections, and make a tangible difference while respecting the organization’s needs and requirements.

    I understand that volunteer programs are essential for the growth and development of both the children and the communities they reside in. By volunteering, I hope to assist in areas such as education, mentorship, health, or any other initiatives that align with your organization’s goals and needs. Moreover, I am open to taking on various responsibilities and tasks that would best utilize my skills and background.

    I am eager to learn more about the specific volunteer programs that are currently available within your organization. Please provide me with information regarding the locations, projects, and requirements. Additionally, if there are any upcoming orientations or training sessions, kindly let me know, as I am committed to preparing myself thoroughly for this meaningful experience.

    Thank you for considering my request, and I sincerely hope that an opportunity arises for me to contribute to your organization’s impactful work. I am eager to embark on this journey and positively impact the lives of children who deserve love, care, and support.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Warm regards,
    Marianna C.
