The Villages Encounters ( V.I.L.S)!      
The unforgettable life experience! 
V.I.L.S Village project, volunteers are needed for the on-going construction and water building projects in this rural community based in the west side of Uganda. Volunteers needed for manual labor jobs working along side skilled and unskilled local workers and we accept volunteers for both short and long-term placements, all the year round.

Volunteers certainly gain an amazing life experience from their participation in our placement program. On first arrival, most volunteers sample all the projects before selecting the tasks that suit them best.

Some tasks include farming, construction of houses for villagers, expansion, water well building and renovation work. Volunteers do not need prior experience, but skilled workers are very welcome.  This is a very hand on, hands dirty sort of program. Enthusiasm, a good sense of humor and helping spirit are required.
