Volunteers are welcome to work with any of our projects, and if you have ideas of how your expertise could contribute to our work then please share them with us! Depending on the time you have available, we can develop a plan so that you, the Trust and our community benefit the most from your efforts. Look at our Projectsor WorkAway pages for more information about what we are doing. Volunteers can work with our range of community projects, or help us out at home on our small farm.

More information on volunteering at Bubugo HERE


Bubugo is located on the river Nile at “Superhole”- one of the best surf waves on the Nile for kayakers. The river is beautiful and has a lot to offer for all levels of kayakers, birders, tree huggers and fresh air lovers! Bring your own tent to camp in our garden, or find more information on our accommodation on AirBnB! HERE


We have a number of research interests linked to our projects that would allow us to determine better ways to implement our ideas, and quantify the impact our work has. We are also happy to discuss any ideas you may have and how you could get involved in conducting research with BCT that would provide insight into the local communities and environment. Both Jenny and Charlie have experience in supervising and guiding academic research studies in Uganda and have hosted numerous students from around the world at BCT.


We are currently collecting physical donations of books, solar lights, reading glasses, stationery, suncream, hats, long-sleeved shirts and anything else that is of use for our community! Some our best donations have been ideas from friends who saw a need we didn’t recognise. Please contact us to discuss any in-kind donations (as we have to figure out how to get them to Bubugo!).

We are very happy to receive donations of all kinds. Please contact us directly for how you can make a cash donation. If you would like to help us fundraise then that would be wonderful! We have lots of ideas of how you could fundraise, and are very happy to hear your ideas and discuss these with you. You can fundraise to make a donation to the Trust, or to cover your time while you volunteer with us.
