About the Program

Healthcare is essential for the survival and development of the women, children and their entire families. And good health does contribute massively to the development and the ability to escape poverty for the poor communities.

The volunteer program will promote and deliver healthcare to the poor women and families living in isolated and hard to reach areas. The health  volunteers will work as health coach, advisors, educators, liaison, promoters, outreach workers and counselors

The volunteer program will help the women and families to learn about maternal health, childcare, nutrition, preventable illness, diabetes, high blood pressure, malaria and diseases that affect life and their prevention. The volunteer will in addition learn about how to build “Tippy Taps” near their toilets so that hand washing after toilet use is easy. With Tippy Taps build near the toilets, families’ health improves and saves lives of the women, children and household members.

You will be working in rural setting and in the communities with poor healthcare services and with no medical facility present. In the community where you will be working, the people here walk over 15 kilometres to access a medical facility.

You Role as a Volunteer

The volunteer working on this volunteer program will be required to carry some health materials about the different health issues affecting women such as maternal health, nutrition, childcare, malaria, typhoid, HIV/AIDS among others. Materials such as charts illustrating the process to better hygiene, gloves, water purifiers such as water guard and organize information prior setting off to the volunteer trip. You are also encouraged to carry along any materials that you think can support you as you carry out your role of Hygiene and Sanitation Educator.

While in Uganda, you will be working with village health workers, local leaders, teachers in school and the staff to make the program more effective. 

Tasks for volunteers:

Information sharing  health: This will involves meeting with women groups, visiting families to communicate, share and sensitize communities and teach/train about maternal health, nutrition, childcare, hygiene and sanitation.  Information on waste management, boiling water for drinking, hand wash after toilet use and before eating food. 

Build Tippy Taps: this focuses on ensuring that each family has a Tippy tap in their homes. Therefore, the volunteer will be responsible for helping families learn how to build Tippy taps near their toilets and make sure that each family sets up a small garden under the Tippy tap that they will use to grow vegetables.

Logement

We are interested in helping our volunteers learn more about Uganda and the culture here so the accommodation provided is with a host family. And our organization pays the family for the time the volunteer stays there. Unless if the volunteer wants to stay in a hotel, then we can have a special arrangement.

The beauty of the volunteer having the accommodation with a family is that you get to learn more about the culture in Uganda, get friends, learn about the local behaviors and history, and always in a company of someone. The host family selected always meets standards of our organization and are always ready to host you.

The accommodation consists of one bed room and a bathroom. However, for volunteers visiting as a family or couple, we have a special arrangement for you as you get accommodated as a family in Guest house or hotel. But if you prefer to stay with a family host then we make arrangement that way.

Guest Family
Bedroom (Single)
Famille d'accueil Chambre simple
Aliments & Boissons

Since our Volunteers are hosted with the family, they share a meal and drinks with the host family. In the host family, more of the Ugandan dishes are prepared. If the volunteer wants to eat special meals then we also arrange for that. However, once placed in a home, then the food and Drinks are all arranged through the family.

The food includes Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The meals include banana which is Uganda's staple food but here it is called Matooke, Beef, Beans, Posho, Greens, Potatoes, Chicken, Rice and Cassava. Breakfast consists of Milk, Bread, Egg, Fruit, Coffee, Rolex and Chapati. Most of these are local dishes, however special meals can always be arranged on request.
