Volunteer Projects:

Change Life Organization assists individuals, families and their communities through the following interventions:


The Organization works to improve the health of the poorest and most vulnerable people especially children and women. We want to fully participate in the reducing of under-five and maternal mortality and supporting people living with HIV/AIDS and as well as other most vulnerable people to access medical services.


The Organization ensures that all children and those from the most vulnerable people have access to different levels of education by facilitating them to have school fees, school uniforms and school supplies.

Agriculture and Food security

The Organization works to support vulnerable people and their communities to increase agricultural productivities by providing quality seeds and train them on good agricultural practices and methods and providing cows for farmers to get manure as fertilizers and milk to fight malnutrition among children. We also train them on livestock management and help them to secure the lives of cows.

Economic Development

The Organization seeks to promote income generating activities and mobilizes individuals to access loans from micro enterprise such as Village Savings, Credits and Loans Associations and Savings and Credits Cooperatives

Secure Livelihoods

The Organization seeks a way to improve the livelihoods of the poorest and the most vulnerable people basing on main factors that affect them and the relationship between these factors. These factors are their access to health services, their access to education, their social support, their capacities and skills, the use of technologies and the use of natural resources etc.

Environmental protection

The Organization creates awareness and builds capacity and supports to promote natural resources management, soil and water conservation, lakes and rivers protection from bad weeds, tree planting and animal protection.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

The Organization supports the rural poorest and the most vulnerable people and their communities to get access to safe water supply and ensures access to facilitation sanitation and encourage hygiene. Clean water, basic toilets and good hygiene practices are essential for better lives of people and development of children. Water-born diseases are one of the leading causes of death and those diseases caused by poor water and a lack of sanitation and hygiene are preventable. Change Life Organization will work to improve water and sanitation services and as well as basic hygiene practices.

Disaster relief

The organization intervenes in humanitarian assistance and help save the lives of affected people during emergencies. The Organization works to deal with those emergencies by creating the plans through which communities reduce vulnerabilities and cope with disasters. The communities are educated about disasters preparedness, prevention, mitigation, response and recovery.

Children & Women empowerment

In our Organization we believe that the poorest and the most vulnerable people and their communities cannot get out of the poverty without helping their children growing in full dignity worthy for human being. Helping children to grow and educating them to reach their full potential is the main way to release people and the communities from poverty.

Change Life Organization ensures access to different education levels (primary, secondary, university and vocational training) between girls and boys. The Organization provides women and girls with opportunities to education, health care, and access to businesses and decent work and further advocate for them to have representation in economic decision making processes. The Organization believes that empowering women helps fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and promote peaceful communities.
