Many visitors who come to Uganda and Kenya desire to do more than just experience the wildlife. Through our partnership with Empower a Child, we can offer volunteer opportunities to all of our visitors. Our volunteer opportunities are as flexible as our safaris, they range from an individual spending a week or two working in schools,orphanages, babies homes, hospitals and street kids home to larger groups going out to work in villages to build homes and help develop self-sustainability for families there. We encourage making volunteering a part of your trip because it gives you a richer experience with the people and the culture as well as allowing you to have a more tangible impact on the community in East Africa.
Empower a Child is a non-profit Christian organization based in East Africa, Uganda and Kenya. We are registered in the US as a 501(c)3 non profit organization. We focus on the humanitarian crisis in Uganda and Kenya by re-building communities and empowering today's youth. EAC provides resources for children and teens to excel academically and will never turn a child away due to age or religion.
We have a team of national staff and volunteers in both Uganda and Kenya working directly with the children in the various community outreach and sponsorship programs to improve their quality of life spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Our international volunteer team ranges from 2 – 60 volunteers from all over America, UK, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand throughout the course of the year. We are a small grassroots organization, which allows us to have a personal connection with each child in our different programs. We believe each child has potential and should not be denied education and economic empowerment merely because of their age or situation.
