International Volunteer’s Network
Kampala , KMP
International Volunteer’s Network is a private organization which was formed with an aim to mobilize international volunteers to live with and work alongside with local people on sustainable humanitarian projects with the goal to help the local communities improve their standard of living.

Our focus is to deliver an enriching and adventurous African holiday for people that also:
• care about the needs of the local people in developing countries
• care about respecting local customs and culture
• care about preserving the environment and natural resources

Our VISION is to break the cycle of cultural phobia and “profession-culture” biases that hinder global integration, leading to tolerance and better understanding of the similarities and differences amongst cultures.

The MISSION of International Volunteers Network Inc. is two-fold;

1. Foster the understanding and appreciation of the various cultural interfaces associated with globalization through broad-based inter-cultural exchanges, and volunteerism.
2. Working with local communities to identify areas of mutual cooperation like reducing poverty, diseases and ignorance and professional collaboration.

Established in 2005, this unique private organization is a brain child of persons with a passion for global awareness together with other several people including ex international volunteers who have joined their hands to share an international focus on sustainable developments for Africa and Uganda in particular by working together to increase the capacity of local communities to provide support services to families, women, youth, orphans and vulnerable children in Uganda.

1. IVN‘s objective is to promote peace, justice and tolerance through cross-cultural understanding and global cooperation.

2. Link volunteers from different cultural and/or professional backgrounds, through volunteer opportunities available with Community Based Partner Organizations around the globe.

3. Enable local communities tap into the global wealth of skills, knowledge and resources that would otherwise be expensive for them to acquire.

4. Develop, enhance and put to use, an immense pool of experienced volunteers as they encounter new challenges while enriching others along their path.

5. Encourage and foster the mutual sharing of the cultural aspects associated with today’s globalization.

6. Promote those initiatives, programs and projects at all levels of our participation that act as agents of positive change in the communities that we work with directly or otherwise.

7. Provide a one-stop information and service centre to those persons, groups or organizations wanting to volunteer in communities with different cultural backgrounds.

We offer customized programs with flexible start dates. You choose when you want to volunteer work and for how long. We personalize each program to suit your skills and preferences. Regardless if you are traveling solo, with your family, on a spring break, gap year or medical mission, we can arrange a rewarding volunteer experience.

We offer the following volunteering opportunities:

HIVAIDS Prevention & Awareness
Primary School Teaching project
Medical Volunteering projects
Construction / Community Development projects
Conservation and Environmental projects
Mini – Safari Venture Uganda

All our charity programs are combined with unique, magical excursions (safari) where you will have the opportunity to tour the National Parks of Uganda.

With our volunteer program we allow you to discover the wonders of African in more in particular Uganda while doing meaningful and rewarding community work.

This is a great opportunity to explore life in rural Africa, live and work amongst the locals and realize one person can make a difference.

With our extensive experience in development work and education, we are able to ensure that the local communities and volunteers benefit from a genuinely meaningful and worthwhile experience, preparing and supporting both volunteers and our partner communities. Our idea is to promote sustainable Eco – Tourism - “responsible travel to natural areas which conserves the environment and improves the welfare of the local people". With our volunteer projects, we offer travelers the opportunity to explore a new country while taking part in meaningful, rewarding service work.
