Education Projects in Uganda

Jinja Education Project

In order for children and youth to reach their full potential and rise from the grip of poverty, education is paramount; however, many schools in Jinja lack the basic infrastructure for children to learn. The Jinja Education Project works with educators and communities to refurbish schools so children can access an education in a safe and well-equipped environment.

Volunteer opportunities: teaching, organizing recreational activities and after-school programs, assisting with necessary construction, painting, and refurbishment projects.

Kiryowa Community Development Initiative

The partnership between GIVE International's many generous donors and our hard-working volunteers has propelled the beautiful village of Kiryowa towards improved health and education opportunities for its residents. When we partnered with Kiryowa in 2011, 70 percent of the population lived in extreme poverty (less than $1/day) and could not meet their basic needs for food, water, shelter, sanitation, and health care. Beginning, brick by brick, with the construction of a highly functional new primary school facility - and enduring with the delivery of health care, malaria prevention initiatives, child-nutrition programs, and Family Kit distributions, GIVE is creating a platform for families in Kiryowa to experience a bright future.

Volunteer Opportunities: teaching, organizing recreational activities and after-school programs, assisting with necessary construction, painting, and refurbishment projects, coordinating mobile health clinics, running breakfast feedings, distributing family kits, organizing malaria prevention initiatives.
