Volunteer Programme 2018
Lámha Suas are recruiting volunteers to join our Volunteer Programme for July 2018. It is a 5 week placement in rural Uganda, living and working with the local community.
So why 5 weeks then? Is it not a bit long?
No. It’s not.
We’re only going for 5 weeks. We’re not going to change the world but we are going to get a Building Programme finished, the volunteer teachers are going to get a scheme of work finished and we are going to have the bare minimum of time needed to explore Uganda – the rich and the poor, the urban and the rural… so we get a really good feel for what life is REALLY like – and that’s what you want.
You’re not a VOLUNTOURIST going for the goo, you’re a Lámha Suas Volunteer going to see, experience, give back and LEARN.
Volunteers raise €2000 for our programmes and pay their own airfare. Lámha Suas cover airport transfers, transport to the village, food and accommodation in the village and we subsidize health cover with the International Hospital in Kampala.
Who Can Go?
As an education based organisation, we are always looking for teachers. You will be teaching English, PE and art to all class levels in Kiruuma and Kisoolo Primary Schools.
This year we also want to recruit volunteers to deliver nutrition training to those running our Safe Motherhood Programme – so if you have expertise in nutrition or if you’re a Speech and Language therapist who could give advice on breastfeeding, give us a call.
Lámha Suas welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Talk to us about your skills, talents, passion and expertise and we will work out how best to use your skills.
