Who would like to spend some time in Uganda? Probably a good many people. BUT you need to ask yourself: ‘What have I got to give?’
Anyone going to a ‘developing country’ needs to have a skill they can pass on which will help people towards self-sufficiency.
We have had volunteers, experienced teachers, who have gone over for 2 to 3 weeks spending time training teachers. This has been immensely beneficial, some Ugandan teachers travelling up to 100 miles to attend the courses. A volunteer from Scotland has been over many times teaching women and older girls how to use knitting machines. Many women are now earning a living as a result. Over 250 machines have been sent over to groups in 27 centres.
We have had Peace Corps workers who spend two years helping in a particular area. Nurses have gone out and helped with the Mobile Clinic.
