MDU Women's Empowerment program is partnered with Change African Child International (CACI). CACI’s programs aim to improve girls and women employability prospects by preparing them for quality jobs and helping others succeed as entrepreneurs. Education and decent employment opportunities are the key to helping people get the chance to work themselves out of poverty. The women (young and mature) are taught sustainable income generating skills. CACI provides hands on vocational skills in hairdressing, tailoring, garment cutting, fashion design, knitting, cobbling and shoe production, leather works, hand crafts making and computer training. These skills empower young people to believe in their dreams and to enable acquisition of income so that they can support their household and families. Each training course is complemented with a certificate upon completion.

Once a week, the female volunteers, along with our MDU social worker, council a group of young women on many topics such as: hygiene, women's health, relationships and much more.  

Journée Typique

Medical Outreach (Tuesdays & Thursday): During our medical outreach programs, we test patients for HIV, hCG and Malaria. We also treat many illnesses and infections, such as: URIs, UTIs, and STIs, GI infections, skin infections and wounds. We provide families with mosquito nets to help prevent future malaria infections and hand out mama kits to expectant mothers. In most health facilities, the supplies needed during delivery are not provided and pregnant women could be turned away if they do not bring them, risking the lives of the mother and baby. Each mama kit we hand out contains everything needed for a safe delivery.  We also hand out reusable sanitary pads to girls and young women, increasing their chances to complete school, work and live successful lives. Every child at our outreaches receives deworming tablets and vitamin A. Both are necessary for healthy growth and development. All treatment, including the medication and supplies, are provided free of charge. Our medical team includes: MDU doctors, nurses, lab manager, support staff, people from the local villages and our volunteers from all over the world. Every outreach is a unique and rewarding experience. 

Women’s Empowerment (Wednesday morning):  Volunteers will participate in a local Woman’s Empowerment Program. MDU partners with Change African Child International (CACI). At CACI, women are taught sustainable income generating skills. For example: tailoring, hairdressing, cooking, adult literacy and gardening. Once a week, the female volunteers, along with our MDU social worker, council a group of young women on many topics such as: hygiene, women's health, relationships and much more.  

Kisenyi Program (Monday, all day & Wednesday afternoon): MDU works with the street connected kids in Kisenyi, the largest slum in Kampala. According to government estimates, as many as 15,000 children, ages 7-17, mostly boys, live on the streets in Kampala. Twice a week, the MDU staff and volunteers gather a group of street-connected boys and bring them to the program site. There, the boys get counseling, play fun games and receive a nutritious meal. Due to the poor conditions on the streets, the boys often come to the program with wounds, illnesses and infections. The MDU staff and volunteers treat the children during program and arrange for follow-up care at the nearby clinic if necessary. The goal of our program is resettlement. When possible, MDU re-connects the kids with their families or finds other options to keep them safe. MDU also has a sponsorship program making it possible for kids to go to school and get an education.

Activités de Loisir

In your free time, there are many options for activities! A lot of our volunteers like to take extended weekends to do safari, gorilla trekking or adventure water sports. All of these are at the volunteers own cost, but are organized through our local partners to ensure the best price and experience. Our close proximity to Kampala means there is plenty of opportunity to explore the craft markets, eat local food and go to local events including soccer games. We encourage volunteers to travel on their weekends and will help arrange trips or activities.
