Inquire about the trip

Uganda has reopened to international arrivals and programs in Kampala have resumed! The mission of this program is to support the women of Uganda who face abuse, neglect and gender injustices on a daily basis. Mission Trips Uganda and their partner in Uganda place volunteers into various community locations such as orphanages, schools, Women's Centers and Groups with the aim of providing support, skills and resources to empower the women towards a better life. Opportunities exist for qualified and experienced volunteers to work with women who have suffered abuse, while business minded volunteers can assist with entrepreneurial enterprises. Volunteers with a passion to assist without formal qualifications will find valuable roles with younger children. By necessity the program is flexible around schooling, work and family commitments.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential care and support to vulnerable young women
  • Improve the future prospects of abused and disadvantaged women through education and skills
  • Give vulnerable women quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

How You Can Help:

Volunteers on this program play an essential role in helping women, young and old, escape from the cycle of violence and ingrained gender abuses prevalent in Uganda. Participants will spend their time supporting women and assisting the local staff as needed. Volunteers can be involved in a variety of roles dependent on their skills and preferences including education, vocational training (such as tailoring, hairdressing, gardening, cooking, Basket making, cleaning etc), business and life skills.Those trained  in counselling, psychology or psychiatry can work in their area of expertise to help abused women recover from traumatic past events. This is a challenging but hugely rewarding placement for any volunteer.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways on this program and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Support women in a number of ways
  • Provide education on a variety of topics
  • Organize activities and provide skill-based training
  • Work on awareness raising initiatives

 

Requirements: 18yo+

Mission Trips Uganda welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help us provide support to some of Uganda's most marginalized and vulnerable women. While this challenging project does not require participants to have a background in the fields of social work, counselling and/or Women’s studies, 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. 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
  • Passport
  • Recommendation letter from your college or Church
