Empowering rural schools and communities with computer literacy

"Our work involves moving throughout the country so we give our volunteers a diversity of cultures and great experience."

This is the Deal

Maendeleo Foundation is a Ugandan local NGO that promotes computer literacy in rural schools and communities.

Our volunteers get an opportunity to teach basic computer and literacy skills in schools and community libraries.

At schools the volunteer support our team in developing good teaching methods,training teachers and designing information sharing platforms for schools.

At community libraries and centres, besides basic computer trainings, volunteers are involved in business skills training,information and communication training workshops for various groups in communities as well as fundraising for the different activities in libraries.

We also have a training centre where volunteers participate in teaching advanced computer skills, business training and helping in business incubation for youth and women

Accomodation

We are located in Mukono town which is very accessible and there's power and running water.

Volunteers have a self contained house (toilets and bathrooms with plumbing) and reliable power supply.

In libraries there's basic housing which is usually shared with locals and there's no city water and no toilets but latrines

What Else

- Smokers allowed
