During a typical day with the Stars, you can expect to work with, play with, and serve children with special needs and their families at our various partner schools and organizations in Kampala. Depending on the current needs of the organization, as well as your passions and skills, there will be opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities, such as speech therapy, home visits, community advocacy, and education events, village outreaches, family empowerment programs, and parent and caregiver support groups.

We also welcome volunteers who are interested in serving in areas other than speech therapy! Whether your passion is photography, marketing, blogging, design, etc., please let us know and we can talk more about utilizing your gifts with Stars Ministries.

Yes. If you are accepted to serve with us, we will email you a detailed packet of information to help prepare you for your trip to Uganda. In it will be included a list of suggested items to pack, recommended reading materials, and information about what you can expect to experience in Uganda.

English is the mode of instruction in Uganda, so most kids understand English. However, in instances where families do not speak or prefer English, we work with translators during therapy. Interns will take part in a language class which will help them understand the basics of Luganda, the language that is widely spoken in central Uganda and around the country.

Due to the unique nature of each trip, the cost varies. When we receive your application, we will be able to give you a quote based on the dates and length of stay. If your application is accepted, we can work with you to brainstorm fundraising ideas. Funds received through Stars Ministry are tax-deductible.
