GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT FOOTPRINT VOLUNTEER UGANDA

Volunteering – a trend that is getting more and more popular. It means choosing to give some of your time and energy for the benefit of the community without expecting anything in return. This can be by working for a non-profit organization, charity organizations, medical centres and many others.

Countless organizations have come up to offer volunteering opportunities to world changers who would love to impact the generation and change countless lives for a brighter future.

With the increased death rates of AIDs victims, several young children have been orphaned, women widowed, helpless girls lying in beds of Mulago hospital Uganda; lacking even something very small to eat, the cancer patients die day and night leaving behind orphans. There is no one to help the disabled ones, Uganda is definitely one of the best countries to volunteer in.

On completion of studies, most students from Europe have dedicated themselves to serving local communities in Africa through volunteering projects in different countries. Something that is going to help them gain more new experiences, develop new skills as well as boosting their confidence.

Volunteering starts with searching out for the best country and project that favors your desires, an environment that won’t bore you down.

But what is so special about Volunteering in Uganda? The first thing that hits your mind is the country’s beauty. Being the pearl of Africa, Uganda offers a grand range of experiences, not only volunteering, but also adventure wise. It is one country that furnishes awesome weekend getaways. A volunteer can easily have short weekend trips when he or she is not on duty.

Furthermore, the people of Uganda are the best people you would ever work with. The Ugandan inhabitants are so open minded, willing to show you their country and their origins, as well as the delicious food. They are kind people with huge hearts that welcome everyone who comes their way.

As a volunteer you can work in different areas of responsibility that empower the next generation. Volunteers can teach English to young children at school helping the little ones improve on their grammar and writing skills. At primary and secondary school you will teach them core subjects, such as English, mathematics, science, whichever you prefer, it’s a good move.

Still volunteers can work at a medical center or hospital basing on your qualifications and desires. These clinics lack enough resources and staff – so as a volunteer, your assistance is needed and they are really blessed with your help. You will work alongside doctors and nurses, so they can always guide you on the duties of the hospital.

The most perfect voluntary in Uganda, one that sums up all the above mentioned is volunteering at an orphanage. Working in an orphanage is an incredible way to help these poor children receive the love, care, education, and companionship that the world had denied them. It is always a great opportunity to improve the present and future lives of these disadvantaged children.

As a last possibility we want to show you the work in national parks or with the nature generally. You get an impression of the various number of the flora and fauna that Uganda hides. This is also one self-esteeming action, knowing that you have once been part of Uganda’s conservation.

We can say that all these areas of responsibility are not only a big value to the local communities and the children, but also for oneself. It expands your view of the world; it’s fun and adventure-filled. You meet open minded people from around the world, you learn new ways of doing things, culture and language.

THREE SIMPLE WAYS OF LOVING THE DISABLED PEOPLE IN UGANDA

Three Simple Ways of Loving the Disabled People in Uganda

An estimation by the World Health Organization is that 10% of any population is disabled with persons with compromised ability to meet all their needs. For the disabled people in Uganda need your support and love not sympathy.

Disabilities don’t make them less people, they also have goals, purpose in life and long term dreams no matter the form of disability, whether physical or mental, age, gender or location because disability doesn’t mean being disqualified from having access to any aspect of life.

If we are to successfully bring up a loving and caring culture in Uganda, it must be one that gives chance to each diverse human gift to find their place in life. One that doesn’t create any gap for the disabled to regret the things that they are limited to by their form of disability.

Caring and showing great love to the disabled people in Uganda has the power of making them feel special. Probably when someone talks about this, you think of sponsoring them with your money, actually this is not the case as some of these people even go to the schools of the disabled.

But Love goes beyond that and we can surely build a strong relationship with the disabled people of Uganda through these simple ways. Things that can give them hope, avoiding them from being disabled in spirit as well as physically.

Pay them visits occasionally. The disabled people also know how to have fun, visit them, spend some time with them, take photos featuring them, you will see how they also have awesome camera poses that you didn’t know about. Such simple things make the world way so different for the vulnerable people.

Donate gifts to them. Not referring to big gifts here, little gifts like toys to the children, clothes, scholastic materials and others. Remember in the world there are no great things, but little things done with great love, the little you give in with a great will does much more than the much forcefully done.

Throw them a party. Perhaps they have been visited often by different volunteers in Uganda and they have indeed donated a lot to them. But who has thrown them a party, for example a Christmas party, or birthday parties, just for them to eat, sing and dance, something that they rarely experience in their lives. Wouldn’t it be so amazing for them just to see a staged disco in their music compound all for to enjoy till late?

The world will never be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in, and such things deem to be small, but they speak volumes in the lives of the people that are disabled. They wash away the feeling of rejection that fills their hearts in most cases.

Together as one let’s love the disabled people in Uganda, we can support them, visit and donate to them. That way we shall make this world a better place for everyone to live.
