Volunteering & Support


With the assistance of volunteers and supporters from around the world, we are making an invaluable contribution to the lives of vulnerable children, particularly within Uganda. CALM Africa will continue to develop its programmes and initiatives within this region and look to extend them throughout Eastern Africa.

Former volunteers speak of their time in Uganda being a life-changing experience – opening their eyes to the issues that exist and the determination of a young nation to recover from the horrors of its past.
