Uganda has reopened to international arrivals! The Creative Arts project is based in schools, homes and disability centers in Kampala, and Central Region. It was developed as art offers a platform to escape from reality and the hardships of everyday life for vulnerable and disadvantaged children, while also teaching skills that can positively impact their futures. The Ugandan Education Service has recently included arts as part of the curriculum in the hope to improve the children's creativity, and ultimately, their lives. Art allows students to express themselves, tapping into their inventiveness and creativity, and is a fun outlet that helps positively stimulate and motivate.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

By teaching youth creative skills and allowing them the freedom to express themselves, volunteers are imparting these youth with the skills to help them towards a happier, more fulfilling life. Since this is a new initiative in the education system, there is a severe lack of creative arts teachers and a desperate need for volunteers to help staff the project. Volunteers will have a curriculum to follow, however are encouraged to teach any creative subject or activity that will benefit the children. Resources are limited so donations from volunteers are greatly appreciated.This is important for those volunteers who are designing activities that might be new and need additional materials.

How You Can Help:

Research shows that exposure to art can help youth develop many positive skills and abilities (such as developing their memory and ability to focus), and can ultimately improve children’s confidence and academic performance.The benefits to those living in poverty and at-risk youth are even higher. Art exposure can be instrumental in resolving conflicts, deterring problems with attendance and disruptive behavior, and building self-respect, resilience, empathy and collaborative skills. Volunteers on this fantastic program will assist children to develop their cognitive abilities through creative methods using constructive materials, paints, clay and drawing. They will also help to keep the classroom clean, teach basic English and report on daily activities to local teachers. In addition to creative arts lessons, volunteers can spend time assisting the teachers in other subjects.

This is a great program for creative volunteers as they will have the opportunity to design and implement recreational and educational activities for the children. Volunteers are encouraged to use their skills and interests to develop fun things for the children to do such as music and dance, arts, crafts and much more.

Volunteers can expect to;

  • Participate in a diverse range of artistic projects
  • Teach art classes, giving youth the opportunity to experience creativity and learn art techniques
  • Teach English and assist with other subjects as required

 

Requirements: 18yo+

Mission Trips Uganda welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the artistic development of Uganda's next generation. While this highly rewarding project does not require participants to have a background in the fields of art or education, as there are many ways you can assist, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with patients and staff, though this is not a pre-requisite. All applicants must of course display a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:

  • Emergency contact
  • A recomendation letter from your college or church
