COME WITH US AS A VOLUNTEER? Tjeko is definitely not just valuable for children. The impact on the entire team, teachers and parents is just as big.
Come along with TJEKO
As participant of a Tjeko Trip you get the chance to be involved with the Tjeko Fun Fair (TFF) and to connect with children who have never really had the chance to be a child.
An example schedule of an 18-day-long Tjeko trip around Jinja: DAY 1: Arrival in Uganda.
It’s the ideal opportunity to visit Uganda and do something for the many children there. The TFF offers you a chance to have an incredible time where you not only get to experience life in Uganda, but also how fun and playing affect children.
DAY 2: On your way to Jinja, you will enjoy a tour through Kampala and you have the chance to get used to the Ugandan climate.
DAY 3: Get to know the Ugandan volunteers and discover Jinja and surrounding area.
Through local schools, orphanages and development organizations, we reach children who suffer daily and struggle to survive. We will offer them fun - a bit of tjeko in their life.
You can participate as a group or as an individual. We will make sure that we become a close-knit team.
‘It was amazing to see the big Tjeko tent filled with hundreds of little faces every day. I’ll never forget the enthusiasm of these kids. It was hard work at the Tjeko Fun Fair, but it was for a wonderful cause. It was one big party with a lot of dancing, singing, games and of course the play. After four weeks in Uganda, I can say that I’ve become even more enthusiastic. And Tjeko is definitely not only valuable for children. The impact on the entire team, teachers and parents is just as big. It’s awesome!’ Eline , team leader at the Tjeko Fun Fair Uganda Eline , teamleader during the Tjeko Fun Fair Uganda
DAY 4-13: THE TJEKO FUN FAIR! You’ll be assigned to assist in a different area each day. You’ll also visit local schools, orphanages and surrounding villages.
JUST THE THING FOR YOU! Tjeko is looking for passionate people who are willing to help us and join us on Tjeko Trips for a few weeks. We would love to utilize your talents and experience.

‘IT WAS ONE BIG PARTY’
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING? From June through to August several Tjeko Trips will be organized. With the ‘Build It’ Trip, you will be building Tjeko. Literally, by performing maintenance on existing attractions and building new ones. Or figuratively, by training Ugandan volunteers in their preparation weeks. With the ‘Do It’ Trip, you will be an actual part of running the Tjeko Fun Fairs. You’ll be given responsibilities that suit your interests and skill-set.
