Highlights:

Volunteer Action Network is located in Gulu, Northern Uganda which is a post-conflict region but on a course of recovery and development. Our mission is to empower underserved women in Uganda through socio-economic, health education, and leadership programs, creating opportunities while strengthening families and communities. It seeks to offer women leadership and empowerment abilities required to lead successful dignified lives.

While volunteering or interning with us we offer ongoing support and supervision and can help organize taxi pickups, local accommodations, and even cultural classes. All volunteers and interns will also receive our Pre-Departure Powerpoint, invitations, and Introduction during their internship at the NGO.
