Why join STGF in Uganda?
The STGF’s volunteer placement program offers volunteers the chance to make a real difference in Luuka district where 80% of children do not finish primary school. This is unique voluntary work through which you can help bring about lasting change.
Working closely with our vocational center, volunteers will help teachers develop and improve their practices, and create a positive learning environment in which students want to come to school and enjoy learning. Helping these students remain in school is crucial to improving their life chances and helping their families escape the cycle of poverty.
By bringing about change at a grassroots level, a chain of learning is carried from teachers to the schools in their region, meaning that the training our volunteers deliver goes on to impact hundreds of teachers and thousands of children across Uganda.
How will the placement help you grow professionally?
The STGF Volunteer Placement gives volunteers from all backgrounds the chance to gain unique skills that are invaluable to their future career. Working closely with rural schools, you will help local teachers develop and improve their practices and create a positive learning environment in which children want to come to school and enjoy learning. Helping these children remain in school is crucial to improving their life chances and helping their families escape the cycle of poverty.
Working in such a challenging and under-resourced environment, volunteers learn to apply creativity to their career approach, and develop a capacity for flexibility. These skills will enable you to effectively take leadership within schools, careers and implement positive change.
