Description:

The volunteers will work with a Youth Environmental Protection group that has worked with volunteer groups since the 90s with a common aim of promoting and protecting the Environment in Buwenge Town Council and the country at large. Buwenge is a fast growing urban council and is affected with all the challenges of urbanization and globalization. With the population of Buwenge escalating, the council is facing a problem of waste management and deforestation. In cooperation with the town council and the local community, the volunteers will be looking for a way forward to help the communities of Buwenge cope with pollution, environment degradation and other health hazards. So the town council of Buwenge is looking for motivated volunteers with the skills to guide the council and local communities on waste management and environmental issues.

The volunteers' tasks involve teaching and educational support; guidance and counseling; environmental conservation activities; coordination of club activities; career development.

Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months. The program is running throughout the year.

Location: The project is located 102 Km from the city centre of Kampala. From Jinja Town the project is located 20Km off Kamuli Rd in the eastern district of Jinja which is an industrial and tourist attraction.

A volunteer experience may give you ideas or a push in deciding your professional aspirations - one of the most important and difficult decisions one should make in life. It can make stronger your motivation or give you additional inspiration in what you are studying or working. And most important, by being a volunteer you gain the hands-on experience you will hardly get at lectures or at the office desk. In a workcamp you can have such an involving and inspiring time!
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
