Our Volunteer Program

OVERVIEW OF PROGRAM

There are a variety of volunteer roles within Little Angels Ministry Uganda projects, office and partner health facilities- to fit your abilities and interests. Work includes working on Hope Camp, our annual event for vulnerable/ orphaned girls and boys community outreach projects, education and distribution. There are also office based roles, helping in-country staff develop and monitor projects, raise funds, and raise its profile.

Many of these roles can be combined, depending on your interests and skills.Volunteers working in health facilities may perform/assist/observe emergency duties; work in surgery settings, in-patients or out-patients. Pre-med students and other students considering a career in health care will find volunteer experience very helpful in solidifying career choices. Shadowing/ supported clinical roles are available for medical/nursing/dental/AHP students, including elective students.
