Volunteering Opportunities

Are you curious to visit another country and get to know its people, culture and traditions?
Do you love to work with children and want to spend time experiencing the work in an Ugandan NGO?
Are you open-minded and a team-player?

 Then you are exactly the kind of person we are looking for!

This internship is organized by Abaana Uganda e.V.. We are a small group working on a voluntary basis. Therefore we cannot offer an all-inclusive-support-package, as some larger organizations are able to do. We will provide you with all necessary information and help you to organise your stay. You will be able to speak directly to one of us via Skype and can contact us through email. Accommodation in Uganda will be provided and you will have an emergency contact. But please note that all other responsibilities remain with the future volunteer.
