Uganda is one of those rare destinations in the world that seems to have the unique combination of natural beauty, intriguing history, and vibrant culture and much of this country still remains wild and uncharted.
For students interested in studying international development and gaining practical experience in the field, Ssamba Foundation has provided numerous internship, research and event coordination opportunities. We have worked with several students who have worked or are currently working in the international development field
Volunteering requires flexibility, patience; those who are self-starters, and people who genuinely respect the host people and their culture. Volunteers never come here to teach the people western ways, nor are here to save the people. Volunteers come to share their energy and time with the people, to experience their culture first hand and to grow themselves.
At Ssamba Foundation, the volunteer program options available are endless – we operate and support local schools, a women microfinance project, a community health clinic and social community center.
