Organization Description
SHARE - is a grassroots non profit organization based in Pallisa, Uganda. The emphasis is on giving support to the affected households in the target community by improving their quality of life through providing their orphan, and vulnerable children with; Education, Nutrition, Residence, and Medication.

We are looking for volunteers from abroad who can help in Pallisa district of eastern Uganda. We can also consider helping in Kumi and Mbale districts if prefered. We would like to have volunteers that are patient, flexible, friendly, and outgoing. It is a bonus to have knowledge in community work, organic farming, permaculture and sustainable farming, education, or health. They must be ready to learn and adapt to our culture and have empathy.

Volunteers are welcome for any period of time, whether on the short or long term. Volunteering programs will be made accordingly so that you can reach your objectives and ensure that you can contribute to the best of your capacity.

Given our current programs, we are particularly interested in volunteers who want to work in:

1. Education. Since we do have a school (Hammerslag), the volunteer will help the organisation in supporting the poor children, of which many are orphans. You can join the people from the organisation and contribute to the sports and community projects for children. Activities with the children include playing sports like football, school gardening, and spending time with the vulnerable children in primary and nursery schools. We often set up new activities like poetry day or music events. Most importantly, you can also give your own ideas about what kind of activities would be enjoyable for the children. The organisation will support and help you to make your ideas come true and help the children.

2. Health. Take part in our activities around behavior change communication, HIV/AIDS prevention, or nutrition education. We are always looking for people who can teach to the communities or work in partnership with health facilities. A medical background is not required; however, we are actively looking for volunteers with some expertise in the field, including nurses.

3. Management. Help us designing and implementing our projects. You can assist the programs manager at the office for a variety of tasks, from reporting, to making workplans, to helping with the coordination of a project.

4. If you have any expertise or skills in a field of for example building, arts, management, agriculture, health or childcare you are more than welcome to realize your ideas and support the communities we work with. We believe that every volunteer comes with new ideas and can provide a great input for our organization. Do not hesitate to make suggestions.

5. Special Long term volunteers needed. The organisation is looking for a volunteers from any part of the world to volunteer in management for a period of two to three years.
