Dolphins Kindergarten




A home away from home where a teacher symbolizes the parental figure and helps to win children into the world of learning, showering a lot of love, care and guidance. The Dolphin family creates a homely environment for the child nurturing him/her into a dependable citizen.

By offering our early childhood education curriculum, also our less privileged children from a partner community based organization from Kampala slum called Community Empowerment for Village Development (CEFOVID) get an opportunity to share equally the same foundation with others.


To provide a sustainable early childhood education to all children regardless of their background.

Working hours

The volunteer will work from 08.00 am to 04.00 pm Monday to Friday.


Communication at school is mainly in English, though especially with kids, it may be challenging since not all of them can easily express themselves in English. Translation to the Volunteer from the local language is possible from fellow workmates.

Comments from UPA

The project is hosting maximum 2 volunteers at a time. It is ideal to those volunteers who would like to be in touch with smaller children and would like to get an overview on the growing stages and steps of a Ugandan child.


All volunteers choosing school project should always remember to consider the school holidays when the schools are closed in Mid-April – Mid-May, Mid-August – Mid-September and December to Early February.
