Recruiting Organization: Volunteers 2 Uganda

Women in Uganda can face a range of challenges, including discrimination, low social status, lack of economic self-sufficiency, and greater risk of HIV/AIDS infection.

The aim of the project is to provide support to young women in developing the skills needed to carry out income-generating​ ​activities so they can provide for themselves and their families.

If you’re someone who is interested in promoting better opportunities for women in Uganda, this is a rewarding project to support.

As a volunteer on the Women’s Education project, you will work closely with local community centers, providing support to women and their families. You role will be focused on providing mentoring support around management,​ ​​financing and educational development to increase independence among the women and allow mothers to better support their families. Many of the women’s groups are involved in craft​-making through basket weaving, sewing, tailoring and jewelry-making, and the craft​s they make are then sold in order to generate income and provide for their families. Volunteers are also encouraged to create educational training materials on topics such as managing​ finances, vocational skills and building self-esteem.
