About

iHi International supports VIPs (Vulnerable International People). We start by evaluating needs and then work to develop solutions to provide opportunities to meet those needs. After evaluating needs in the Wakiso District of Uganda, opportunities were identified for training of parents and care givers in:

  • PT/OT activities they can do with their children
  • PT/OT equipment development planning consultation
  • Behavior management
  • Individualized instructional activities of children with disabilities who do not attend school
  • Speech development activities

Assessment and determination of needs is also needed to determine recommendations.

Once in a lifetime opportunity to get outside of your comfort zone to see the world, delve in to a new culture, and help VIPs with use of your training and skills.

Volunteers will need to be vetted and an interview process with iHi International staff (remotely or in-person) is required prior to assistance with coordination of volunteer opportunity.

Dates are tentative and cost would be around $2000 - $2200USD including airfare, lodging, most food, transportation, program and administrative fees. Passport, visa, vaccination and insurance fees would be separate and will vary depending on what volunteer already has prior.
