The truth is there isn't one answer to this question, in fact there are plenty of possible answers why one should volunteer. Volunteering is special because it's a product of relationships between people; their interests, passions and aspirations which is why according to a study by NCVO in 2016/17, up to 14.2 million people in the UK formally gave up their time by volunteering once a month.

Part of those millions of people giving up their time to volunteer for Future Builders Uganda are Natalie and Lauren from London who have decided to head to Uganda for a few weeks to help children in rural village at St. Balikuddembe primary school.

So why volunteer:

1. Give something back

Volunteering offers the chance to step back from our everyday lives, appreciate what we have or even take for granted and give back in whatever way we can to those who are less fortunate.

2. Sense of purpose

Volunteering serves to express and facilitate opportunities to carry out one’s sense of purpose.

3. Good for society

Volunteers pick up the pieces where government programs leave off and by volunteering these guys are helping society meet the needs of people from all walks of life and children
