Internship Opportunity with Uganda Village Project

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.

If you would like more detailed information, please feel free to contact Tom Karrel at to directly schedule some to talk or visit our website to learn more.
