Your coordinator will be your key contact, and will be readily available to assist you anytime during your stay.

Is Upendo registered as a non-profit NGO?


Yes. UPENDO is registered in Uganda as a non-profit organisation under registration number S.5914/4610 by the National NGO Board Ministry of Internal Affairs Uganda  and its operations satisfy the requirements of a non-profit including its organizational structure, finanical model and nature of operations.

How do I know that Upendo is will spend the money?
Upendo will disclose its financial summaries to active volunteers upon request.
What will happen once I arrive?
You'll be picked-up at the airport and for the first 24 hours, be in our orientation program. You'll be briefed on and shown around your new environment by your Upendo coordinator. You'll also be given a chance to catch your breath before heading to your placement.

How far in advance do I need to apply for a program?

It is highly recommended that you apply for a program at least 20 days before your anticipated departure to ensure that space is available in the program of your choice, you have time to prepare, and you have obtained the necessary immunizations, visas and a passport. If you register less than 60 days prior to the desired departure date, and space is available in the placement of your choice, then arrangements can be made. You must consider, however, the time needed for immunizations and the extra fees for expediting your passport and/or visa.
