As a grassroots public health organization working in rural villages, Uganda Village Project offers interns hands-on experience in the following areas:
- Monitoring and Evaluation: collecting household surveys to measure knowledge and behaviors
- Work in an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural team (interns from Uganda, US, Europe, Australia, and more)
- Collaborate with community leaders to identify and address a village’s most pressing health concerns
- Conduct educational sessions (sensitizations) in coordination with Village Health Team Members (VHTs)
The internship has also served as a practicum for some students, and students with varying levels of travel and professional experience are encouraged to apply. To give more insight into the experience of past interns, attached is a blog post from our team from the Nabirere village in 2016.
