Firefly Uganda is a small organisation ran entirely by volunteers. We work hard to ensure that all funds get invested directly into the projects, avoiding administration fees and other unnecessary costs. This is why we invest a lot of time fundraising and collecting funds for our projects, and ask all our volunteers to help us raise as much as they can before joining us on the island.

 Our general fundraising target is 2000€ per person. This is additional to, and not included in living costs. Once you are here with us, you will get involved in all decisions about where and how this money will be used for our projects!

We know fundraising can sometimes seem like a daunting task. Luckily our team has had a lot of experience fundraising in the past and we are here to help you whenever you might feel stuck or short on ideas. Turns out fundraising can actually be a lot of fun and a great experience to learn from! 

Any additional stay on top of these packages is charged at 105€/week
