Community upliftment program in war affected Luweero District, Uganda
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP
Full time (30+ hrs/wk)
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
The volunteers in this project will work with communities in Luwero District which are still recovering from the 5 year Ugandan Bush War (also known as the Luwero War or the Resistance War) waged between 1981 and 1986. We will support the efforts of local organisations promoting social protection and helping the communities of Luwero to improve their livelihood. Self-motivated volunteers with a strong interest in sustainable agriculture, nutrition education and food access are needed.
The volunteers will organize an outreach program in the communities and assist with the local government's programming in education and agriculture. They will teach children, provide child care, guidance and counseling, and encourage skills development. The group will help arrange and take care of some school gardens. The volunteers will also visit local farms, educate locals about agriculture, raise environmental awareness and promote education in the communities.
Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months. The program is running throughout the year.
Location: The project takes place in Luweero District, in the Central region, an hour drive from Kampala.
