Educating indigenous communities about the need to conserve the environment and boosting the training team in constructing rain water tanks using waste plastic bottles.
International Volunteers working alongside local volunteer teams, will help on sensitization of communities about Environmental and Nature Conservation basics . They will also have an opportunity to train in constructing rain water harvesting tanks using waste plastic bottles as bricks to further boost the rural communities' training teams in Kayunga District of Uganda.
Construction of rain water tanks with waste plastic bottles is an innovation by BUVAD, used to conserve the environment and nature, mobilizing end user communities to prudently reuse the accumulating waste plastic bottles in Uganda and the rest of the world .
There is room for both long and short-term volunteers to run workshops and work on other projects.There is a lot of room for independence and decision-making when you
volunteer for BUVAD.
BUVAD assumes you will have deep passion on the subjects you wish to create workshops on . This is something that we will confirm as we go through the application process with each other. What we need over and above your valuable ability is that you as an individual are able to act with a high degree of responsibility, love, passion, independence and that you are by nature a proactive person. We already know by first hand experience that most people willing to volunteer possess these traits.
Volunteers will work from Monday up to Saturday of every week, working 8 hrs a day .
However a volunteer is free to discuss plans for more rest days, may be to make a tour visit to some of the tourist attraction sites or relaxation centers in Uganda at their own discretion on the first day of arrival. Most workshops are 50% theoretical and 50% practical on a daily basis.
There a a lot of things todo: Visiting local families, reading novels, watching Television movies, Clubbing in the evenings...
Our volunteer residence and focal areas are located near several tour attractive locations you will want to make part of your schedule. Many can be done in a day and some you can make overnight trips out of.
