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)
Our internship has also served as a practicum for some students, and we encourage students with varying levels of travel and professional experience to apply. To give you more insight into the experience of our interns, we have attached a blog post from our team from the Nabirere village in 2016.
