About the workproject

We need 10 volunteers

We provide long-term sustainable solutions to problems in rural Africa which are mainly caused by poverty.

GVA Foundation – Africa designs and conducts programs which contribute to the welfare and social productivity of disadvantaged individuals and communities with an emphasis on children and youth.

We address some of the most pervasive problems in rural Africa, including HIV/AIDS, malaria, hunger, education, poverty, access to clean drinking water, and orphaned children. In addition, we focus on empowering the youth of Africa through leadership and skills training.

Mission: Providing resources to achieve sustainable development in under-resourced areas through effective community education and development of projects.

Vision: Self-sustaining individuals and communities free from extreme poverty.

GVA Foundation – Africa is founded on the principles that our common humanity is more important than our individual differences. We therefore operate on a non-political, non-denominational, and non-sectarian basis, welcoming each and every African in need.

GVA Foundation- Africa reaches out for the furthest and abandoned communities in rural areas of Africa including the exotic Islands. By educating the residents on diseases awareness & prevention, and fostering the creation of self sustaining projects run by the local community, GFA aims to achieve this vision.

Hello, I am Isaac Ssamba, a Ugandan Social Entrepreneur, Humanitarian, Businessman and Farmer.

I am the Founder and Team Leader at SunTrack Adventures, a tours and safari company based in Uganda.

I have been a licensed tour guide, tour operator and travel consultant since 2009.

I am also the Founder and Operations Coordinator for GVA Foundation - Africa a non-government humanitarian service and rural development organization, which I started in 2006.

I own and manage, Nomads Home, a bed and breakfast guesthouse, in Kalagi, Mukono, Uganda and Namazige Mixed Farm near Lake Victoria.

I am an adventure travel and road trips addict and so I founded a knit-community of adventure seekers which I named- Vacation Hunters – East Africa.

If you choose Uganda and East Africa at large as your next destination for a vacation and holiday, I would like to be your personal guide or travel advisor.
