  • Descrição

    Descrição

    I am Peter, a local doctor who is very passionate to help the local mountain community, where it is often difficult for the people to access basic health care and education.

    This a charity organisation, working in the Bududa and Manafwa districts of Eastern Uganda. We offer clinical services, mental health care, nutritional support and preventative health services in our charity health centre. We also run a primary school and social development programmes for marginalised local groups, including women, children, youths, children with albinism and elderly.

    Due to heavy influx of patients daily, we need passionate health workers dedicated to save lives. We also need determined teachers for our kindergarten and primary school, with skills to train others due to insufficient local teachers.

    We welcome you to enjoy the cool weather, greenery, mountainous terrain and hospitable community!

  • Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Volunteers have the opportunity to learn new languages, since our region contains people from different places. They can tour places like Mt Elgon National Park with plenty of beautiful landscapes, flora and fauna. Also the nearby Namisindwa caves and Sipi falls that look so attractive.

    It's interesting for volunteers to watch our cultural dances - sonja dance, inemba - its all fun.
    Volunteers can enjoy and learn from our cooking classes, our farming styles and experience different kinds of foods.

  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    We believe that integration of our ideas with local and international partners can lead to a transformed community. Volunteers will be expected to share with us their skills and offer a helping hand to our community members in their respective fields. Volunteers will be attached to our health facility, families, primary school, or kindergarten all within the organisation.

    Help needed:

    1) Curative Healthcare:
    The clinic works hard to tackle local diseases such as malaria, TB, malnutrition and various water-borne issues. We also work with local laboratories to diagnose and prescribe treatments accordingly.
    Volunteers can participate in the services above under supervision by a local health worker.

    2) Guidance and Counselling:
    We deal with mental health issues that stem from poor families, single parents, abandoned children and many others affected by hardship in this area. The children with albinism usually suffer from rejection and they need to be supported with basic needs like soap, sun screen, eye glasses and protective clothing.
    Volunteers with counselling skills will help us so much in this field. This entails home visits and meeting affected children at schools with their teachers.

    3) Community Health Outreach:
    We conduct routine outreaches every Thursday and Friday to sensitise children in schools, home and community gatherings on health issues, carry out basic examinations like nutrition assessments, blood pressure, dental hygiene, skin diseases, HIV testing.
    Volunteers are very much needed to team up with us in these out reaches.

    4) Special clinics:
    We organise specialised camps like eye camps, dental camps and minor surgeries.
    Volunteers with these specialities are welcome in planning, organising and implementing these clinics.

    5) Kids Club:
    We plan for new creative activities like drama, music and dance. Inspire and activate children's' inner potential. Identify ways to make the Kids Club financially sustainable and expand.
    Volunteers can act as a co-facilitator and help to lead these activities, as well as bringing in new ideas and fundraise for additional resources.

    6) Fundraising Activities:
    A volunteer with experience and connections in fundraising is very welcome. We have over 50 orphans attending kindergarten whose parents were lost due to landslides and other unfortunate circumstances. These children need scholastic materials and other basic necessities which they cannot afford. They need to be supported to realise their full potential.

    7) WEBSITE:
    We currently have a website to show the world who we are and what we do. A critical role in the present day. We need a volunteer with the expertise to update our website that will convey all our programs and activities.

    Algo mais...

    Our group creates ample leisure time to learn language/cultures, indoor & outdoor games. Our volunteers shall have opportunity to tour the beautiful sceneries that make Uganda truly the pearl of Africa, like the source of the Nile, Mt Elgon, Sipi fall, Busitema forest reserve to see Baboons, Itanda falls in Jinja. These outings will cost some charge in form of entry fee, transport and of course lunch/dinner may be relatively more expensive prompting us to request our volunteers to meet these individual expenses.
