Help improve the infrastructure and sustainable development of a small, Ugandan community in the Community Outreach program.
Many of the rural communities in Uganda are incredibly poor and lack the finances to repair their houses or even purchase nutritious food. Many of these families rely solely on the food they grow themselves, and frequent shortages often lead to malnutrition.
Your tasks while on this program are twofold; first, you will be working on renovation projects in a village that receives no government funding for infrastructure. These people are greatly in need of renovation work to support the development of schools, health centres, village halls, and churches. Secondly, you will get the chance to help out on a feeding project that works to combat malnutrition in the local children by providing nutritious food to those who cannot afford it themselves.
The aim of this project is to support the local community of Kalagala village through community outreach, renovation, and feeding programs and to promote a sustainable development of the village.
Each morning begins with breakfast at the accommodation, after which we’ll be headed to the placement.
You can expect to work 4 – 5 hours each day, this will probably be on construction/renovation work, but could be anything else that might be needed at the time! We will enjoy lunch on site, and get back to the accommodation in the afternoon for some free time before dinner.
