Summer Internships in Buyobo for current college students are for 60 days. (June-July)

Summer Internships in Buyobo for current college students are for 60 days. Interns live in Bulambuli village (10 miles from Mbale in Sikonko District in Eastern Uganda). Meals and housing are provided in a new guest house with indoor plumbing and solar electricity. Interns are expected to make a contribution to WMI to cover their costs while in the village and to help pay for expenses associated with their internship project. All internships are unpaid. WMI interns/volunteers must arrange for their own transportation to and from Uganda. Internships are occasionally available at other times of the year on an as-needed basis.

Once in Bulambuli, interns provide a variety of support services for the WMI program. They assist with automating records, training WMI personnel on the computer and on certain programs like Excel and Word, tutor school age children in reading, writing and simple math, help borrowers with their book keeping, interview and compose borrower profiles, take photos and make videos of loan program activities.
