Providing education in poor communities in Mukono district
Mukono 1 - 3 months
Volunteer project: The volunteer project supports a secondary school providing education and skills development to the communities of Nakaswa and the neighboring districts. Bringing educational and social service facilities closer helps in uplifting the young generation of the country and improving their wellbeing and livelihood. We are mobilizing the community to get involved in the project by creating awareness, helping in the day to day management of the school for quality education delivery, thereby improving access to education facilities. We are working together with the local governments of Mukono, Kayunga and Buikwe districts to achieve these objectives.
The aim of the project is provision of quality education in the poor communities of Mukono, Kayunga and Buikwe. We need volunteers motivated to promote education and skills development among the local communities.
The volunteers will help in the day-to-day management of the school, teaching, ICT training, and construction of the school laboratory building. They will support outreach programs and provide educational activities related to health, hygiene, sanitation, climate change and heritage conservation. The volunteers will develop community involvement activities and will prepare and support outreach programs related to the delivery of quality education to young people with emphasis on those with fewer opportunities. A garden will be set up within the school premises for demonstration purposes and in-house food production using indigenous knowledge.
Duration of the project: 1 to 3 months. The program is running throughout the year.

A volunteer experience may give you ideas or a push in deciding your professional aspirations - one of the most important and difficult decisions one should make in life. It can make stronger your motivation or give you additional inspiration in what you are studying or working. And most important, by being a volunteer you gain the hands-on experience you will hardly get at lectures or at the office desk. In a workcamp you can have such an involving and inspiring time!
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
