We are seeking for volunteers or interns who are interested in working in Africa, specifically in Uganda. We understand that interning abroad and living in another culture is something that is very attractive to employers seeking to hire new people. Not only is the academic component of doing an international internship important, interning abroad also leads to personal life enrichment and fulfillment that will ultimately stay with you for the rest of your life. Experiencing work in unique contexts such as Uganda will provide you with wider perspectives on a number of issues. You will have a chance to network with professionals working in another world and learn more about what it takes to be successful working there. We are providing you this opportunity.
