Who We Are

Partners for Real Change (PARC) is a unique force demonstrating that everyone can contribute to accelerating progress toward the realization of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). PARC has evolved from an informal youth discussion group into an organization committed to ending extreme poverty and other hardships in Uganda, promote well-being for all, and encourage peace through promoting quality education, better health, and training in support of projects designed to enable individuals, families, and communities to be self-sufficient and have the opportunity to reach their potential.

What Our Volunteers Over the World Are Saying

I have made several annual trips to volunteer at PARC!. Whether engaging with their school, one of their sustainability programs or engaging directly with community members, your time will be spent doing something with impact and a powerful experience anchored in human connection and sustainable practices. I highly recommend visiting the good people of PARC in Uganda, whom I consider family.”

“I first visited in 2013 and helped develop support with their secondary education program, trying to build connections with the most disadvantaged students. Subsequent visits in 2014 and 2018, I have seen their work transform into the Shine Preparatory primary school that has quickly become a focal point in their community. I strongly recommend a volunteering experience with PARC.”

“I was lucky to remotely volunteer with PARC in 2020!. My experience working with this charity organization has been fantastic! Having the chance to help with one’s own competencies is gratifying and absolutely life-changing. Even if my experience lasted just 4 months, I am grateful that I had the chance to be involved in PARC. Such an inspiring initiative!”
