Uganda Village Project (UVP) is currently accepting applications for the 2022 internship program. Interns will spend 8-9 weeks working with rural communities in Uganda to help implement sanitation, nutrition, and/or public health monitoring and evaluation activities in communities involved in our Healthy Villages program. Please review our Healthy Villages Program to learn more about UVP’s work and how it is changing the lives in the Iganga District.

Program Dates:

Team Leaders: 12 June 2022 – 14 August 2022 (9 weeks)

Team Members: 15 June 2022 -14 August  2022 (8.5 weeks)

The application is open from 1 November – 1 February, but applications are accepted on a rolling basis until filled. The EARLY APPLICATION DEADLINE is 15 December. Applicants who wish to qualify for the early application discount MUST submit all application materials by 15 December.

Program Fees: 

— $2500 USD (regular applications)/ $2250 (early applications)

All interns are required to pay program fees of $2500 USD ($2250 USD for early applicants) in addition to a deposit of $500 USD.  A portion of your fees will be tax-deductible (approximately 40%).  Interns may choose to fundraise for their program fees but must do so externally (i.e. using personal crowdfunding websites such as GoFundMe).  UVP will not be able to accept donations for program fees on your behalf. (Early applicants who submit application materials on or before 15 December receive a $250 discount on the program fee.)  The deposit is refundable upon successful completion of the program. Program fees include group pick-up and drop-off at Entebbe Airport, orientation, your room and board while in Uganda. A portion of your program fees are considered a tax-deductible donation supporting Uganda Village Project’s programs.
