Volunteer with ARUWE

  • ARUWE relies on the valued support of skilled and motivated volunteers. By working in partnership with volunteers we combine our knowledge and skills to empower people and communities to fulfil their potential and contribute to socio-economic change. Since 2009, ARUWE has welcomed ten volunteers both from abroad and from within Uganda, who have supported our programme development, communications and monitoring and evaluation, as well as gaining valuable work experience and broadening their understanding of life in a developing country.

    Our volunteer programme invites suitably qualified individuals to work with us for anything from eight weeks to three years. We provide free of charge accommodation in Kampala and Kiboga, however all other costs, including visas, are covered by the volunteer. There are many useful resources on line to help you fundraise at home to support your volunteering abroad.

    We would like to hear from people with knowledge and/or interest in:
    » Food security, including agriculture and farming practice
    » Health, including sanitation, reproductive health and HIV/AIDS
    » Child growth and development, including nutrition and education
    » Human rights, including rights awareness and advocacy
    » Micro finance
    » Research, monitoring and evaluation
    » Fundraising, including proposal development and networking
