Organization Description
AFRICA SUSTAINABLE TOURISM CARE FOUNDATION (ASTCF) is a civil society organization (Non-Governmental Organization – NGO) that has been established with diverse and holistic approach to promote innovative sustainable tourism practices that are geared to alleviate poverty, empower local communities, fight gender inequality, encourage conservation of cultural and natural heritage and foster sustainable development through tourism.

We work directly with communities to understand the obstacles they face and provide solutions specific to their needs. These solutions provide jobs, community capacity building, conservation management, educational opportunities, and, ultimately, the ability for people to better their own lives.

Our Volunteer program is a unique program that offers many possibilities of volunteer service for men and women who wish to devote a few weeks or up to two years of their lives to international volunteer work. We provide an integrated development experience consisting of practical leadership opportunities, International Internships and participation in a global learning environment. We aim to put our volunteer’s skills to use in supporting the development initiatives of local communities in Uganda. Working with this program means opting for an enriching and dynamic experience that will change the course of your life.

We focus on local grassroots projects, cultural immersion and travel learning opportunities, and offer memorable experiences to our international volunteers, with purpose to:

• Improve the lives of deprived people in less-fortunate communities (often rural, poor and economically marginalized) by connecting volunteers to grassroots projects, to enhance learning opportunities for positive transformation;

• Offer unique opportunities for cultural immersion through well designed language and cultural program, and amazing travel adventure to our volunteers, for memorable experience.
