So at ATW Holidays Africa, it is our obligation to promote the welfare of the people around us. You will participate in some humanitarian and charity work on this 11 day Uganda humanitarian/ volunteering tour, wildlife and camping safari.

You will visit Missionaries of the Poor charity home in Kampala, and communities around Pian Upe wildlife reserve and Moroto- Karamoja region.
