Recruiting Organization: Ssamba Foundation

You will be working with our women empowerment program that looks at improving the quality of life for women in Mukono rural and semi-urban communities by providing economic stability.

This Women Volunteering Project Uganda has a number of projects that aim to transform the livelihoods of these poor women through education, economic empowerment and entrepreneurship. You will be working with and helping women aged between 18 and 35 to become economically self-sufficient, providing them with the space and support to develop their business ideas.

You can lead workshops in business skills, IT, administration, financial literacy, people management and customer care. You will be involved in a variety of interesting activities to help the women and girls in the community.

You may be asked to run specialty focused sessions during your time at the project site. You will find the experience extremely rewarding as you build trust and spend time sharing your own experiences with the women and girls, and listening to their own stories.

You might like to develop business plans and small grant proposals and help to design and successfully market handmade products. Whatever your background you can be sure that the guidance, knowledge and enthusiasm you bring to this project will benefit the women for years to come.

You don’t need specific experience working with women’s groups but a willingness to help where needed, a genuine interest in supporting women in need and being sensitive are some of the attributes you should have.

You will be combining this Women Volunteering Project Uganda with other activities, like visiting local schools, public speaking with youth and children and mentorship sessions in the local communities.
