  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP




Long-Term (6 months-1 year)


Northern Region


With this project, we'll support a youth parent local organization in Gulu District, Northern Uganda. It was formed by a group of youth with an interest in creating employment opportunities for the generally underprivileged youth in the district. The aim is to empower youth in Gulu District and surrounding areas economically and socially through basic vocational and life skills training, health awareness creation, provision of support to persons living with disability and development of income generation projects.

The work includes social work in the communities where volunteers will be involved in the general care for the children, working in the local school where you will be involved in promotion of the education growth of the children both through classroom work and also practical work, you will also be involved in the children innovation and creativity activities that will also promote the education growth of the children. Volunteers will be involved in helping in organizational duties and home based work within the communities.

Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months. The program is running throughout the year.

Accommodation: The volunteer will live in a host family within the community and this will provide you with the opportunity to learn more from the local people and also share in their daily life. Meals will be provided in the host family from what is locally available in the community. Volunteers are therefore advised to be flexible and open minded to be able to integrate freely and easily in the local way of life since there will be no special diets in your host family.

Location: The project is located in northern region which is about eight hours drive from Kampala city.
