Project Daktari was founded in 2010 by 6 medical students who were interested in exploring the world while helping people out.
Because of a befriended Ugandan doctor, Dennis Okumu, they ended up in the Kilembe Mines Hospital in Kasese – Uganda.

In the summer of 2010 they traveled to the hospital, and they brought about 400kg of medical suplies with them. Thus began a friendship between the Daktari Project and the Kilembe Mines Hospital.

Every year new groups of volunteers went to Kilembe to help out were needed and to investigate the key problems in the hospital. Together with the staff overthere, we discuss how we can improve  medical care on the most basic level.

The main causes of our project are currently:

  • Orthopaedics
  • Maternity
  • Infectiology
  • Dentistry

More information about these causes can be found under the heading ’causes’.

Since October 2015 we are a registred non-profit organisation (“vzw Daktari Project”).

We regularly organize activities to support these projects and information concerning these can be found on our facebook page or on this website.


Thank you for you interest in our project!
