Protection and preservation of the World Heritage Sites of Uganda
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
Heritage Trails, Uganda is a museum of Uganda’s history and culture with 3 sites inscribed by the UNESCO in three different locations in the country: the Tombs of Buganda Kings at Kasubi, the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and the Rwenzori Mountains National Park. The project is organized together with Uganda Wildlife Authority, Uganda Tourist Board, Uganda Museum and Uganda Wildlife Education Center, as a response to the growing interest of young people to undertake concrete actions and to play an active role in the promotion and preservation of Uganda’s heritage. The Heritage Trail was initiated with the aim to create a good relationship between nature and humans, and to inspire people, especially youth, to learn about and appreciate the different aspects of the natural and cultural heritage.
The group of international volunteers will explore the forests and the villages of the three UNESCO Heritage Sites and will organise outreach programs for the benefit of the surrounding communities. They will promote environmental awareness, conservation and protection of the sites. The volunteers may help local communities on small sustainable tourism projects in the area. They will also develop and design promotional materials for the individual sites.
Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months. The program is running throughout the year.
