FSD JINJA-UGANDA is committed to advancing professional global learning in the context of promoting community-based development. We strive to achieve community – driven goals through asset based development and global education service exchange in Uganda.
Our volunteer and internship program provides an opportunity for students, professionals and individuals to gain hands – on experience in sustainable development and insight into the Ugandan culture. This is obtained through directly working with our partner community based organizations and living with host families. The volunteer and intern opportunities are thoughtfully designed to help participants build their career while having lasting impact in the communities they serve.
Program implementation is done in the Jinja region of Eastern Uganda in the Districts of Jinja, Buikwe, Mayuge and Iganga. Jinja Municipality is our major town; the second largest town and commercial center in Uganda with roughly 90,000 people.
