The Community Development Internship will afford you the opportunity to mobilize local communities towards a common agenda, to form social groups, to capacity-build within communities, to build social capital focusing on cooperation between individuals and groups for the purpose of producing positive community development outcomes. The process involves community-based participatory planning, implementation, in addition to monitoring and evaluation. The community’s standard of living cross-cuts all sectors.
Reason to participate in community development projects
Engaging in community development projects offers an opportunity for you to work alongside local Ugandan communities who are striving to adopt small scale development initiatives in a bid to meet their livelihood needs. Improving infrastructure and basic amenities are essential factors towards reaching this goal and increasing community assets. Keeping communities physically healthy, encouraging resource sharing and building micro-economic opportunities are critical to achieving development objectives and to removing poverty traps.
