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 tom@ugandavillageproject.org to directly schedule some to talk or visit our website to learn more.
