About Us

Back ground:

Intern256ug is a nonprofit organization started in 2008 by a group of 4 friends who had a passion in linking local communities to the outside world. The organization was started with an aim of preaching sustainable development to grass root communities a factor which was rare in the Ugandan ways of looking at development.

Many of the CBO’s and NGO’S depend on donor funds to run their projects and organizations which has led to various downfall of many organizations in Uganda. Intern256ug was thus started to help in creating a new strategy of sustaining grass root organizations by using the little resources to realize better and bigger outcomes.

Our mission:

Inter256ug promotes intensive and well planed programs for both national and international interns/volunteers aiming at acquiring hands on experience in developing countries like Uganda. Our Internship programs range in the fields of Environment, Community development, Health, Youth and education, Micro finance and Women’s empowerment.

We boast of more than 25 partners in the field which creates a variety of opportunities in all the catchment areas hence giving better placements to our interns.

Intern256ug future strategies are aimed at working with community organizations to achieve sustainable development on a global basis, in addition to an ongoing expansion of the catchment areas through registering various grass root organizations and acquisition opportunities within the communities of Uganda.
