Outreach Uganda is looking for a reliable and organized person who can help us with general office work. This will include handling correspondence, filing, shipping web orders, running errands, and tagging and organizing our inventory of fair trade crafts including paper beads. We especially need someone who can regularly work some hours each week. The ideal match is someone who can commit to a consistent day and time frame every week for the 3 month period.

January to March is busy for us as we work on getting more Ugandan children sponsored so they can go to school. There is a lot of paperwork needing assembled and copied. In addition, we have organization and labeling work relative to Ugandan fair trade crafts that we sell in the U.S. Working with data entry on a computer is a plus as you could help us with fulfilling craft orders through our web site.

Mission Statement

To empower poor people in Uganda, especially women and children, to overcome poverty through: income-generation, education and training, as well as other community empowerment endeavors including a community school with 500+ students in K to 6th grade, a clinic serving over 5000 people in 5 villages, and a home building program for women.

Description

Our empowerment activities include:

3. business development assistance
4. cash crop agriculture activities

Education and training activities include:
1. scholarship and sponsorship programs for over 200 children
2. girls' education initiative program to keep young girls in school
3. training programs for women as well as teachers

Community empowerment programs include:
1. partnering with a northern Uganda community on its primary school which has over 500 students and 18 teachers and 9 support staff
2. partnering with a northern Uganda community on a clinic serving over 5000 people
3. assisting our Jinja women's group with a home building program to provide women a decent place to live where they can move out of the slums and stabilize their lives

Prior to working with OU, our women participants were normally living on less than $2 per day, and were supporting 8 to 10 children and orphans in their households. Many are widows whose husbands died in the war, or from AIDS.

We do not give handouts but work on building capacity and encouraging those we work with to help themselves.
