Volunteer opportunities at KAKA are extremely varied and involvement can range from a few days to a few months or longer or anything in between. All that we ask is that volunteers have an interest and desire in supporting the girl child who are at the heart of our work. You will not only gain experience working with us but also have an exciting time experiencing life in Mpigi and seeing the highlights of Uganda – the ‘Pearl of Africa’.
KAKA has a fully staffed team, however there’s room for anybody looking to volunteer their time and energy. An open mind and forward-thinking attitude will make the most of your time with us. Due to our emphasis on girl child our volunteers can get as involved as they wish. This includes time spent in the community – Mpigi – and in the office. Opportunities include helping out in almost all areas of our work such as our school outreaches, library, skills development amongst others.
Our goal is to create a well-rounded experience of what it’s like to work for a small organisation on the frontlines of development work. Each person has a different skill set and because of our small size we try and utilise every volunteer who walks through the door to their full potential. The skills you’ve acquired from other jobs, volunteer placements, life experiences, and educational achievements can all be used here in some capacity.
