Why join Redearth in Uganda?


Redearth Education offers volunteers the chance to make a real difference in an education system where 80% of children do not finish primary school.


Working closely with rural schools, you will help teachers develop and improve their practices, and create a positive learning environment in which children want to come to school and enjoy learning. Helping these children remain in school is crucial to improving their life chances and helping their families escape the cycle of poverty.  


By bringing about change at a grassroots level, a chain of learning is carried from teachers to the schools in their region, meaning that the training our volunteers deliver goes on to impact hundreds of teachers and thousands of children across Uganda.

How will the placement help you grow professionally?


The Redearth Education Volunteer Placement gives teachers the chance to gain unique skills that are invaluable to their future career in education.

Working in such a challenging and under-resourced environment, volunteers learn to apply creativity to their teaching approach, and develop a capacity for flexibility. These skills will enable you to effectively take leadership within schools and implement positive change.

Lead up to placement

During your year in Uganda, Redearth Education will provide you with free accommodation, a weekly allowance to cover living costs, and your flight to and from Uganda.


Prior to your arrival, we ask you to raise £2,000 through various fundraisers to contribute towards your living expenses. We provide support in setting up and promoting your fundraising events to ensure this is met.

Living in Uganda

Redearth Education is based in Masindi, a friendly and bustling, small market town in Western Uganda. Masindi is 200km west of the capital Kampala, and about 2 hours drive from the Murchison Falls National Park.


During your placement you will have your own bedroom and shower-room, with shared living and kitchen facilities. This is set within a gated compound close to the town centre. There are local restaurants and hotels nearby, banks and ATMs are available, and a local clinic offers good medical facilities.

Working in Uganda

Redearth Eudcation's work is centred in Masindi District, in western Uganda. Volunteers will travel to various rural schools throughout the district and, as Redearth is expanding, some work is also done in other districts of Uganda.
